Prisoner in the darkness of my soul,
Invisible chains held me in the blackness of that gaol,
Shadows moved around enclosing walls
Circling smoothly, pressing darkly
Black on black against the light.
Spectres, spirits, ghouls flickered in the gloom,
Encroaching back to back around me in the room.
I cried out to God to help me flee,
Escape the evil that I felt surrounding me
And He… and HE was the One who set me free!
