Upon them a light dawned
Pulsing through the night
Bringing angst to a halt
Providing them respite

Eons of unease
Racing towards its end
Servants of darkness
Soon to apprehend

Despair reached for hope
Mounting upon its wings
Pain laughed with joy
Breathing love's vaporings

Hate traded compassion
For a ray of sun
Hurt and her quarrels
Quickly came undone

Broken hearts were mended
Repaired from deep within
Giving man the peace
Of comfort in his skin



My own king
I cannot face
My shame and hurt
Against me race

My own beloved
I turn to not
Pain has caused
My courage to rot

In a world of people
I feel alone
In a sea of smiles
I turn to stone

My hitching breath
My rapid heart
My healing process
Has yet to start

I want to talk
I want to speak
But given the chance
I am too weak

I miss the trust
I had in Him
I miss the love
I felt in the wind

I long to return
To days of past
The urge to run
Is growing fast

But I am blocked
By perpetual sin
To the fallen
I am kin

I feel beyond
Mercy and love
Like I've fallen too far
To reach above

Above the pit
Of darkness I'm in
Above the slight
Of the spirit within

My head is telling me
His arms are open
My heart responds
They're conditions unspoken

What I've known
And what I've been taught
Mean absolutely nothing
And penetrate not

For in this instance
Logic has no hold
And my hardened heart
Holds stories untold

Maybe one day
My joy will return
Not to be taken
By mockery or spurn

And on that day
I'll sigh in relief
When I finally realize
I'm not such a beast



Grief is not a prison
It can't hold you in its walls
Pain is not a chain
Dragging down dark halls

Hurt is not a shackle
Tied around your feet
Distrust is not a burden
You alone must meet

Confusion is not a window
Barred with eternal life
It is but a visitor
Present in your strife

Peace will reign again
My friend
And scars you then will bare
To the world so thirsty
For signs that someone cares

The Girl Who Once Was

I saw a girl 
skipping through sand
Joy on her face
And heart in her hand

She held it out freely 
With no contempt
A scarlet smile 
And away she went

To and fro 
No place could she stand
Flittering about
Blessing all land

Her joy most definitely 
Couldn't be 
It could not live
In the world of thieves

I stalked 
And creeped
And followed behind
This girl so different 
This girl so alive 

I killed this girl
With a blade to her throat
And no one else 
On would she dote

Because this world 
Is hard and cold
Accepts only pain
And legends of old

The life I ended
I do so regret
My heart is burdened 
I cannot forget

For myself did die
That Summer day
Laying still
Under sun ray

Thinking somehow
I could atone
For the hurt to come
And the betrayal 
Of my very own
