Deep within my heart I hold few secrets.
Those I have I cherish too much to tell.
I have two that simply gnaw at my soul.
I've tried forgetting them in every way.
Both are reasons for me writing so Dark.
Writing verse is my escape from the pain.

It seems the best way to write is from pain.
Perhaps that is why I hold my secrets.
Maybe that's why I hold on to the Dark.
What drew me to evil I just can't tell.
I know others follow a different way.
I can't face the light just to save my soul.

I am resigned to being an old soul.
It helps me cope when I share a friend's pain.
Most don't understand why I am this way.
I can't respond and still hold my secrets.
My story though they will want me to tell.
All this interest makes me long for the Dark.

Every life begins and ends in the Dark.
The lack of light comforts my tortured soul.
That fact is something I can choose to tell.
It is one truth that causes me no pain.
My heart is maimed by some of my secrets.
Lies hurt me in exactly the same way.

I wonder if others have felt this way.
I'm not lonely just alone in the Dark.
Such is the price paid for keeping secrets.
I long to confide in a single soul.
Doing so would only cause me more pain.
I could never trust the one I chose to tell.

There are many friends I would like to tell.
My fears seem to always get in the way.
I truly want a release from my pain.
That is why my poetry is so Dark.
It bares to the world my tormented soul.
Verse lessens the burden of my secrets.

I can't really tell how I found the Dark.
I have found a way to brighten my soul.
I embrace the pain caused by my secrets.

Yes, very deep. You tug at my heartstrings as well...perhaps because I can relate so well. Yes, others have felt this way, Dream. Wonderfully written.

Dream, you did extremely well with this. I could feel it. Really feel it. I don't know how to explain that...

Oh, Evil, you have such a way with words. You know sharing secrets saddens another's soul.
