Cruel words once spoken can't return
Again from whence they came
Hot ember's spark ignites the burn
-Eternal is the flame.

Fierce tongues in haste have daggers flung
Sure causing hearts to bleed
Pernicious ways have souls sore stung
-Fulfilling vain dark need.

Loud silence deep doth volumes speak
When muteness shouts its spite
It screams that one's a dastard weak
-Who chooses thus to fight.

A character devoid of grace
Soul shrouded in black night
A dismal void's your dwelling place
-Such is the coward's plight.

So dance with Evil, have your fun
Enjoy it to the max
A day will come when it's undone
-When Light gives Dark the facts.

....ooops, just read in my Webster's that personification is supposed to be capitalized! ...sorry

It means alot to me that you take the time to read and comment on my work!

Balladeer- I'm glad that line spoke to you...for some reason it was the hardest to get right and the last line that I completed.

Mike- Missed ya boy, where ya been?!

Pepper- My favorite line! Glad you liked it too!

Michael- Amen!

RS- Nobody I know personally!

Thanks again everybody!

Rico, Martie, Skyfyre, WhtDove, Blackdrake and DrMoose, Thank you all for reading and commenting! It is appreciated!

DrMoose....ouch! That must hurt!

Blackdrake- Thanks to you also for reading and commenting. I think perhaps you misunderstand this piece though if you say I am a leader on the path of darkness? 'Tis certainly not the intent of this piece or my life! But, again, thanks for your input!
