What darkness possesses this night,
what evil cup has offered me this night,
I know not.
My cries go unheard,
my tears go unchecked,
and I crumble into dust.
Oh, cruel night, end this darkness,
tear down this wicked veil,
and let me suffer no more.
Rescue me, O whisper of creation,
lead me to freedom,
and let my lips taste the kiss of morning light.
