I Am There

In your dreams I am there,

Through the dark lonely night,

In the secrets you bury,

And the battles you fight,

I’m the shadow behind you,

And the breath on your face,

I’m the darkness you’ve hidden,

And the fear you can’t face,

*

In your dreams I am there,

Through the dark lonely night,

In the steps never taken,

And the tears never cried,

I’m the want that you stifle,

And the need you ignore,

I‘m your death and survival,

Both your poison and cure,

*

In your dreams I am there,

Through the dark lonely night,

In the fire and the brimstone,

 And the corruption of right,

I’m the pain and the suffering,

The ecstasy and high,

I’m your drug of addiction,

But you can’t tell me why.

The Abyss

Standing on the edge,

Looking into the abyss,

I’d seen the light succumbing,

Long before it came to this,

*

I heard the words unspoken,

And read the empty page,

The whispered breath of reason,

Was the truth I couldn’t engage,

*

I’d seen the dancing figures,

In the flames that died away,

And seen their passion ebbing,

In the languor of their sway,

*

I’d smelt the scent of history,

That wove between the trees,

Brought down by leaves of empathy,

Like a wreath around my knees,

*

For the sanguinity of optimism,

That berates a barren shell,

Is the despondent melancholy,

Of despair I cannot quell.

When Darkness Falls

Slumbers corrupted,

With dreams that can burn,

The fire,

The passion,

The need that we spurn,

Invading the weary,

The empty forlorn,

The tired,

The neglected,

The ones on their own,

Arousing suggestion,

With affected controls,

The weakened,

The frightened,

The malleable souls,

Exalting the wicked,

The devil’s own spawn,

The evil,

The sadistic,

The dark before dawn,

*

Shackled expression,

Of surrender enforced,

Come to me swiftly,

And show no remorse.
