Lost Hope
~~~~~~~~~
In the beginning and the end
where past and future bend
I found the shining light
that gave the strength to fight
Batherd in light's embrace
while shrouded in dark discrace
I finally found my angel
the last of a dying race

But for every angel of the future
a thousand demons of the past are born
ying and yang collide
and the fabric of time is torn
I am to be the victim
of the ghastly banshee's scream
all hope for me is ripped away
for the light was just a dream
Encompassed in the silence now
with a thousand voices in my head
bring me to the brink
and then my angel's dead
Listening in the emptiness
with tons of time to kill
'cause until the light comes back
time it just stands still

In the beginning and the end
where past and future bend
I found the shining light
that gave the strength to fight
Hope was given as a gift
and taken just the same
for any hope held tightly
is a hope that's held in vein.

Wish in one hand, then defecate in the other and see which one fills up first.

Very powerful piece - I like the way it flows with your style of rhyme..."falls" nicely down the page as I read it...good work!

You've got some pretty strong imagery going here, Dark one..... I shall continue to read and enjoy....

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.
