I enter now into the solitary night,
Fraught with perils lurking out of sight.
Looking for creatures that may steal from me
The eternal love that you darling promised it
Would be. Fear now grips tight around my heart
As I tear through the bramble not wanting us to part.
Alas, though, you are nowhere to be seen, as
My heart pounds an angry rhythm against my chest
I now wander past the dank and vile woods, praying
Praying this to be but a hideous unrelenting dream.
I have loved you my dear since the day we met,
When your unmatched beauty impaled my heart,
And your gentle smile stilled my soul. However,
Fear grips me now, as I tear through the brush
I pause momentarily hoping, wishing, to hear
Your voice, but nothing, no not a sound
Just the eerie silence that only amplifies the
Fact, that you my love are hopelessly lost
And never to be found.
I in midst of agonies form, drop without thought
To the putrid forest floor, uncontrollable weeping takes hold
With my eyes spilling forth both heart and soul.
I beg and pray for yet another chance
To see the smile upon your face, please God
I cried, let it be. Bring forth this instance, my
Lost love to me.
Casting my swollen eyes skyward, I awaited
His answer to me…then without a doubt, God
Spoke to me. “ Worry not, for it is not she that
Is lost little one, but thee.”
With that now told, I looked downward at my feet
As there was an opening in the forest floor
And the legions of darkness gnashed their teeth
And drug me screaming for my love forevermore.
Sopportato della morte di nerezza da luce.
