In Darkness I sit avoiding the Light,
the burning bright fires of heavenly
desires that give me no respite or
relief from the pain I seek.

In living this life of mine,
I find I cannot fault the Darkness
for it's harshness
nor for it's playing with my fate.
Even if I did, it is far, far too late.

By word and deed,
Darkness has freed me from the
straining chains of my own making.
Through love and respite,
the chains are breaking, despite
My fate.

My endless night has
saved me from an endless flight
into suffering and decadent decay.
Beauty you see, is attracted to me,
just for what my Darkness doth say.

Ladies approach ME upon bended knee,
just to hear my faintest word and barest whisper.
I would shout with glee,
grab each one to kiss her,
humility prevents me.

In one other way has Darkness redeemed,
made me more free,
a Gentle Soul entered my life,
her I help save from strife,
she rescues me from being unneeded.

Don't rail against the Light,
just turn and embrace the Night,
with the passion and attraction it has granted me,
I say with delight, thank you Lord,
for my eternal
Night.

my reply is simple...loved it.

------------------
For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...
