Love came in once before
Like a thief in the darkness
That comes through the door
Wrapped in the night it wore,
Still I was neutral to the darkness

Had I known the price love would claim
An offering of all that is bliss
Would I have still remained?
To enjoy the pleasure and the pain,
Still I was neutral to the darkness

Away with love I would send
Falling into the blackness
Those times would never end
Those nights, they would never end,
Still I was neutral to the darkness

Everything changed in my eyes
From the innocence to the sweetness
Blinded by the dark was I
Even if no one heeded my cries,
Still I was neutral to the darkness

Love came in once again
Like a butterfly caress
That feels of angelic skin
And whispers on darkened wind,
And I embraced the darkness

wow, I love this one jer, it reads so serene and it goes so deep inside the place where we hide our emotions...very well expressed emotions in this, as always.
stalking you in your depths *S*
your jm

 she said I dont know if I've ever been good enough,
and I'm a little bit rusty, and I feel like my head is caving in.
...and I dont know if I've ever been really loved by a hand thats touched me...
and I feel like somethings gonna give...
and I'm a little bit angry.

Very nice piece.
