Escape To The Dark

From out of the darkness

Arose wings of black

Drawing me outward

Drawing me back

Sleep fell away

Cold forgotten

The night hid the scars

Rancid and rotten

Kind words, warm touches

Eyes full of light 

No violence or anger

No need to fight

Shadows hiding

What couldn't be seen

Till darkness was ventured

The sunlight unclean

When daylight fails

When appearances lie

Escape to the dark

Where tears are dry

The End
