Luring me with a promise of salvation
The night beckons me into it's embrace
I walk away from my sanctuary
into the darkness, leaving no trace

Never looking back over my shoulder
Disappearing, like Iíd never been
tears dried on my swollen cheeks
looking forward to my life of sin

I know just where this path will lead
and I have no fear as I walk that way
It pains me not to make this decision
and I will never rue this day

Iíve taken my life into my own hands
no one else will decide my fate
walking away from the pain of you
I pray that itís not too late

As dawn slowly lifts her morning veil
to reveal the light of a brand new day
I hide my smile of pleasure at
having found the courage to run away

Courage hard to come by, yet found none the less! And disappearing like I've never been... good line!

As always Lady deVine, you met the challenge well. I begin to see glimpses of you in your work as well.

More and more often I begin to see you as a very powerful woman. Both courageous and independent, not to mention talented....and that my Lady DeVine makes you only that much more impressive....Great work once again.

Courageous! Can I ask what it is your running from? Man or God?
