In the darkness I walk
unknowing of what prowls beside me.
Time passes and I hear a cackling cry.
I turn to see what it is, but it's gone as quickly as it came.
I feel a bit nervous, I feel a bit scared,
What could possibly be following me in this shadowy lair?
Little do I know that the end for me is near;
I trudge on, curious and full of wonder.
What exists in this strange, dark realm?
How did I get here? I asked myself again and again,
But I couldn't seem to remember.
The darkness was all there was, the darkness was all
there will ever be.
Have I accepted such a fate or still do I hold on to some foolish shred of light?
No, perhaps there is nothing left for me but to embrace
The cackling cry resounds again through the silent night.
I feel its presence drawing near, coiling around me and corrupting my soul.
There is no where to run, there is no hope to be found.
There is only darkness... endless, merciless darkness.
In the silence my sanity is lost and I feel myself drifting further and further away from reality.
What have I become but a distant, cackling cry?
I realize it was my shadow all along, now it has become me.
There is no light of precious dreams to be held,
there is only the eternal nightmare.
Embrace the darkness and remember my name, for when you sleep next,
You'll hear my whispering voice in your ear.
I am Nocturne, the bringer of nightmares!
