With no eyes, no ears, no mouth, you grab

without warning, you make us sad

without a choice, you pick

You cause so much pain

which is in vain

one second we’re happy with our lives

another minute we say goodbye

you’re darkness itself 

no one can ever run from you 

we only mourn when you’re at work

which really sucks

because you never knock to apprise 

instead you surprise us.
