It' Dark in Here
"It's dark in here" was all she said.
She never saw the light turn red,
Nor writing, there, upon the wall -
She never saw a thing at all.
As something deep, bleak and sordid
I called love, though it afforded
No mercy - No! Damn near killed me -
In the cold silence revealed me.
All the love, within me, shining...
All those years, alone and pining,
Yesterdayhad swept away
On the echoed words, "I'll be o.k."
Now, apparent from the beginning,
Comes the end with nobody winning...
The price paid by one dimming soul
Endlessly falling through this hole.
And I saw the gleam in her eyes,
(Fading glimmer of glossed over lies);
All she ever dreamt we could be,
In her pretty little make-believe.
I opened up so she could see
There's naught but darkness inside me...
"It's dark in here" - more, might have thought,
But in her throat those words were caught.
I wonder, watching her fall away,
Did I truly think it'd be o.k.?
Did she believe she could touch my soul,
And, in the end, not have to pay toll?
I close the door, that none may see
Ever again this chest cavity...
That screaming vortex of my sin,
The bleeding darkness I hold within.
I strike! It quivers in that heart
Which drives me to this end;
I draw and kiss the bloody dart,
My last-my only friend!
