Don't Ever Listen To The Darkness


Reveal the feathers off your mind
Black - like my soul
Show me what's shattering inside
Erase the coal

Let all the secrets they are hiding
fly free away
Let loose the chains that are binding
just like I say

Listen to my words
and praise on your knee
Sing along the chords
and believe what you see

Vulnerable, weak and shallow
trying to break your neck
I saw you - I was just a shadow
And now I'm here, I'm back

Your worst enemy is your fear
burry it underground
Hold up your head - oh, my dear,
now you are on my side

I'll bring brightness in days of yours
cover you with troves
To you I'll open many doors
-pull down many walls

You are to be the one who's Brave
but listen to me, my son
Secretly you'll be my slave
You'll do what needs to be done

You will kill
and you will lie
You'll stay still
and you might die.

There's nothing waiting in the end
only darkness all arround
Everything is just like I planned
I am glad you're what I found

Your blood was all I needed
to pour out of your veins
The evil had been seeded
I now let loose of your chains.

Thank you, my servant, you served well.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

By this poem I was trying to express that even though the bad things in life taste very alluring and tempting they never bring anything good into your life. That it's only using you for it's own sake and in the end you will always realize how wrong you were to listen to the darkness.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
