In The Darkness
A child alone in the darkness laid waiting for his footsteps to come,
Heard them come near wanted to run.
Alone in the darkness, built an imaginary world to escape the pain, wondering would anything be the same.
In the darkness crying alone, wanting comfort and arms that are safe, alone in the darkness his little waif.
Many nights laid in the darkness waiting for death to come, how many ways to become undone.
In the darkness laying for hours inside self wanting to die, for so many years, living and believing the lie.
In the darkness living a starving raped soul, hoping one day to become whole.
Years have passed, the journey has begun, it is time now to stop and not run.
Laying in the darkness the shadows of the past come calling, many nights dreams of falling.
Falling and falling with no end in sight, wake from sleep full of fright.
Feeling the shadows hands around the throat, wake from sleep wanting to choke.
The shadow breathes in the ear, wake from sleep again to not let him near.
The journey continues,no dark shadows haunt the sleep, no more in the darkness weep.
In the darkness peace is near, the darkness no longer a source of fear.
In the darkness alone crying no longer, since the journey began the heart and healing soul become stronger.
