A DARKEN ROOM

A dark tale from a broken soul

A DARKEN TALE 
ONCE UPONE A TIME IN A LAND FAR BEYOND THE REACH OF GOD’S 
GOLDEN SKY
THE DEMONS OF MY SOUL ARE CLUTTERING AROUND THIS 
COLD AND DARK ROOM PATIENTLY WAITING TO SEE ON WHICH ROAD THIS LOST
SOUL OF MINES WILL TAKE ITS LAST RIDE ON 
FOR AM I TRULY ALONE OR PERFECTLY DEAD
I WONDER NIGHT AFTER NIGHT 
AS I SIT HERE ON THIS COLD HARDEN FLOOR JUST STARING AT THE WALLS OF 
HEAVEN AND HELL
AS THEY CRY OUT TO ME 
CHOSE WISLY MY LITTLE ONE
FOR ONE OF THESE ROADS WILL FREE YOU FROM ALL YOUR BUDERNS AND GRANT YOU 
ENTERNAL LIFE FAR FAR AWAY FROM THIS FORSAKEN PLACE
WHILE THE OTHER WILL SIMPLE JUST ADORE YOU AS YOUR GENTLY BURNS AWAY
FOR COULD THIS BE MY UNHOLY FATE TO STAY LOCKED UP IN THIS DARKEN ROOM
FOREVER WITHOUT NEVER KNOWING THE REASON WHY
WHY THIS OLD SOUL OF MINES MUST REMAIN SHACKLED TO THIS ROOM
EVEN THOUGH IT CRIES TO YOU 
PLEASE RELEASE ME FOR MY HEART IS JUST ABOUT TO EXPLODE FROM ALL
THE YEARS OF EVERLASTING PAIN
BUT I GUESS MY PLEAS HAVE FALLEN ON DEAF EARS
SINCE I CAN’T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I’VE HEARD FROM YOU LAST
OH WELL
I MIGHT AS WELL JUST TURN IN FOR A FINAL GOOD NIGHT
OH BUT WAIT 
WHO IS THIS I SEE FLOATING THROUGH MY WALLS OF TORMENT OF DELIGHT
WHO IS THIS GHOSTLY FIGURE WHO DARES TO ENTER MY DARKEN ROOM
FILLING IT WITH SOME KIND OF HOLY LIGHT 
IS THAT YOU GOD
OR
IS IT YOUR BETTER HALF 
SHALL I KNEEL BEFORE AND BEG FORGIVENESS 
OR
SHALL I KNEEL AND BEG YOU TO JUST PUT AN END TO MY POECTIC LIFE 
TO BE HONEST WITH YOU AT THIS POINT I DON’T EVEN CARE EITHER WAY
ALL I PRAY FOR IS THAT I CAN FIGHT ALL OF MY FEARS AND STILL
BE ABLE TO WORSHIP YOU ALL WITH ALL MY MIGHT
OR
MAYBE THERE’S REALLY NO FIGURE STANDING BEFORE ME
MAYBE THIS IS JUST A FIGMENT OF MY IMGINATION AND HE’LL JUST 
DISAPPEAR WITH A BLINK OF AN EYE 
BUT INSTEAD OF VANSHING THIS MYSTERIOUS STRANGER SUDDENLY 
REACHED OUT HIS HAND TOWARDS ME AND SPOKE IN GENTLY MANNER
HE SAID
GIVE ME YOUR HAND COME AND STAND BESIDES ME
DON’T BE AFRAID I’VE COME FROM THE PROMISE LAND TO TAKE YOU
FAR AWAY FROM THIS DARKEN AND TAINTED ROOM 
AND AS I WENT TO TAKE THIS STRANGERS HAND
SO I COULD FINALLY BECOME FREE FROM THIS DARK AND DREADFUL ROOM
THAT I’VE BEEN LIVING IN FOR SO MANY YEARS
MY EYES SUDDEN WIDEN FULL OF FEAR AS THE LIGHT THAT WAS BLINDING ME
SUDDENLY BURST INTO FLAMES 
SURPRISE! 
THE STRANGER SHOUTED IN AN EVIL LAUGH 
STOP TRYING TO FIGHT ME CHILD
FOR I PROMISE IF YOU JUST HOLD YOUR WRIST STILL
MY KISS OF DEATH WILL NOT LAST 
NO! 
I YELLED WITH ALL MY MIGHT I CHANGED MY MIND
I DON’T WANT TO DIE 
AND JUST AS I THOUGHT THAT THIS EVIL STRANGER WOULD OVER POWER ME
AND END MY LIFE
A CALM AND SMOOTH VOICE CAME OUT OF NOW WHERE AND ENTERED MY MIND
IT WHISPERED 
IT’S OKAY NOW DARLING FOR YOU’RE SAFE AND WARM JUST OPEN YOUR EYES
AND GREET THE EARLY MORNING LIGHT
WAIT WHAT?
THIS WAS ONLY A DREAM
NO IT COULD’NT BE IT FELT TO REAL
COULD IT
OH WELL MIGHT AS WELL TURN OVER FOR ITS WAY TO EARLY
FOR THIS YOUNG POET TO GREET ANY KIND OF LIGHT 
AND AS I ROLLED OVER TO FALL BACK INTO THIS TUNNEL OF DARKNESS
I’M GREETED WITH A FAMIIAR LAUGHTER 
OH NO
NOT THIS AGAIN 
 I CRIED TO MYSELF WHILE SLICING THE BLADE DEEPER INTO MY FLESH
PRAYING THIS WILL BLOCK OUT THIS EVIL LAUGH THAT HAS GROWN LOUDER
AND LOUDER WITH EVERY SLICE I MAKE BUT THIS ISN’T WORKING
FOR SOME WHERE IN MY HEART OF HEARTS I KNOW THAT THERE WON’T BE NO
ESCAPING FROM THIS NIGHTMARE
NO NOT THIS TIME 
FOR I’M FULLY AWAKE NOW WATCHING AS THE BLOOD FLOWS FREELY
OUT OF MY OPEN VEINS AND DOWN MY ARM
AND AS MY BLOOD SPILLS ONTO THE FLOOR THIS EVIL LAUGH CONTINUE TO ECHO
THROUGH THE WALLS OF MY BEAUTIFUL DARKEN ROOM 
I SLOWLY CLOSED MY EYES ONE FINAL TIME AND SMILED
FOR NEVER AGAIN WILL I EVER LEAVE THIS DARKEN ROOM AND GREET 
THE HEAVENS GOLDEN LIGHT
