My relentless companion
Walks my path with me
His eye like a shadow
His hand like a threat

Void, that's his name

Every word he utters leaves a scar
On my face
On my heart
On my soul

I struggle and I fight and I never surrender
Yet he is still here
Always finding new way
To drag me into the black hole 
Of true despair

But one day I found a speck of light
Tiny and weak
But unquenchable
I held it in my hand
And the speck of light grew

Void receded
He smiled at me and said
"At last you've found it!"
