The frigid wind cuts through my skin.
I start to feel the pain deep within.
The sky fades into eternal night,
As the birds take off into flight.
I continue my walk, frozen to the core.
I think to myself; nevermore.
Reaching out to turn the icy metal knob
I have finished my grimly job
Ascending up my old wooden stairs
Feeling the pain that death bares
I collapse into my desk chair
Wishing to God that I didn't care
Thinking back I can still hear his last breath
The last gasp for air before his death
The only thing I saw was red
And there was his body, dead
Pacing my room as the floorboards creak
The midnight sky looking bleak
Thinking to myself I must not confess
But Lord, how do I conceal this mess?
I see a crow perched on my sill
I open the window despite the chill
The crow whispers I know what you've done
And Death reign over you has just begun
Knowing that the crow is true
I understand what it is I must do
Tonight is the night I say goodbye
Tonight was the night I die
