This was written as I was thinking about many things. A lot of my emotions seemed to crash into one, so this is basically a bunch of thoughts melted together.

Through turmoil thick and hardy

I gazed upon a patch of blue

Tempting as it was, I was tardy

I could not divert from my path to you

How were my feet so blind

That they could not find the way

Draw me to you, so close, and tie me

And inject the shadows with your soft glow today

Blow away the fallen leaves

And protect the uncovered ruins

Ever ready to defend

Never better till the end

Arise and fall, I smite the wind

To some unknown place I send

You, the foul beast of darkness

Causing fate to undress

And cast away her armor

And if you ever harm her

Believe that I will unleash

And rip you piece by piece

So slowly

And boldly

Till you scream

Till you plead

Till you seem

To concede

And the footprints on your face

Will somehow be replaced

By the remnants of softened lips

And red trails of fingertips

Will dissolve into your skin

Making you whole again

But your mind remains numb

Never there but never gone

Haunting you

Taunting you

Reminding you

Defining you

Running you through

And becoming you too

A rancid clone

To call your own

Filth and trash

And tattered mask

Shed away from my form

Die and be reborn

Into who I will be

Holding onto the key

That doesn’t unlock a single door

Till I drop it on the floor

And it is lost for good

Just as it should

And becomes part of the answer

And becomes a part of her

The solution to my trouble

Being so hidden and subtle

Take my wrist and lead me on

Till we reach the horizon and we’re gone

To some better place unknown

That we smile and call our home

And yet never move from where we stand

Heart in heart and hand in hand

"...inject the shadows with your soft glow..."
Keith...that is supremely beautiful. I enjoyed the entire poem,
too, by the way.
