Smoke and Shadows

There in the darkness
I find myself again
Searching through the emptiness
For something deep within

Here in the shadows, I always seem to chase
I search for answers that will light the way
But I'm standing in the cold
I'm right here on my own

Smoke and shadows circling me
Blinded from what darkness brings
Anger roils and coils around my being
I can't seem to let it be

Out there in the world, there's a place for me
Somethere in the vast expanse of everything
But I'm trapped here in this darkest place
Stuck in every cold and lonely day

Smoke and shadows circling me
Blinded from what the dark conceals
Anger builds and plunders all my being
And I just can't seem to set it free

I'm trapped
In smoke and shadows
Caught up
In emptiness

With smoke and shadows surrounding me
I just can't seem to break free

Hm,

You reminded me of a book I own.

I will have to pick "Daughter of Smoke and Bone" back up.

Your title called out to me,

and you never disappoint,

but this you already know.
