Fear comes in many forms and oppression in many disguises


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.


(Born Of Darkness, Death By Light)
