Child Of Darkness

Child Of Darkness
I was from an divided family
A sad poor family
provided me with no hope for a future
no reason to live
Give all strength to darkness that exists
I am a child of darken dreams
That at times scared the hell out of me
A sudden extinguished hurt came over me
taken me away without warning
With no care, no love
I was abandoned
left in the darkness
trying to survive on my own with no home
I was a homeless child of the dark
I walked around in the cold winter searching
for any hope or glimmer
All I found was deep shimmers
A tall dark shadow standing over me
He had a look of hast with somewhat taste in style
Even dressed in dusty riding clothes
His hair damp with perspiration
He is a dark Prince
I stand precariously
on a piece of solid ground
barely large enough for my feet
Around me, a vast expanse
of desolation and emptiness
for as far as I can see
The dark prince walked with me
Telling me all about his darkness
Then he extending arms
to engulf and surround me
in a permanent shadow
Calling me his dark child
He never looked happy
He looked angry
And he never like me to ask questions
Now I walk in beauty like the night
of cloudless climes and starry skies
And all that's best of dark and bright
Will meet all in my gray blue eyes
I am the child of darkness
I am the child no one missed
I am the child of many darken dreams
only darkness is what holds me
