In my hour of darkness

I cry
silent pleading
but nobody listens
there are only silver tears
shining upon my windowpane
she smiles

at least someone smiles

She knows me well
her endless space
occupied
within worlds of worlds
within ours
yours and mine
above and beyond
cannot reach the depth
of diamonds

She is light
consoling my fear
welcoming me into her embrace
like mother to child
I fall
freely
exhausted

This is all I have
in this sanctuary of madness
and in the dead shrill cry
of nightfall
I am enlightened
at least
by her watchful eye

In my hour of darkness

Sue?...


"I cry
silent pleading
but nobody listens"



Listening...


"She is light
consoling my fear
welcoming me into her embrace
like mother to child
I fall
freely
exhausted

This is all I have
in this sanctuary of madness
and in the dead shrill cry
of nightfall
I am enlightened
at least
by her watchful eye

In my hour of darkness"



I know this darkness...
and you know that I'm here
when you're in need of
a light
and a smile

Love you, me sis...

When the power of love overcomes the
love of power the world will know peace.
-Jimi Hendrix

If this is your personal experience...it just shouldn't be. You are too good to be going through this. and more

Goodness I feel awful now . . .
I am sorry it is so sad, I adore the night but with it brings such utter loneliness

Kacy, yes I do know and am grateful
thank you

Vicky, yes, as am I always (sista)
thank you so so much

Shara - well yea, sometimes, not all the time but mann who doesnt feel like this?
thank you so much

Matt - oh my maybe that is a good thing then - crying releases so much pent up madness . . .
I am sorry and you are so sweet for saying
what you have . . .
I know that took a lot and thank you

Thank you - the four of you  
have made me just feel so very special

xxoo

Dark, this is...
And you are smiled on...

Dark, this is
But, embraces await

Dark, this is
And you are consoled

In this, your hour of darkness
Time, is but a fleeting thing...


I love this Baby.
But then, I love both song and singer.
(And you're still a beauty in this "dark" clothing.)

Truly sad and truly moving.  Sometimes it's hard to comment on things that are so emotionally charged, so all I will say is, it touched me and thank you.

Baby?  that was beautiful . . .
I love when you hug me
and love you . . . *smiling now*

lance thank you so much, well yes it is true, but also inspired by a song, "In My Hour Of Darkness" by Gram Parsons.
An amazing tune and well I guess this is what I feel when I am alone

Hey poe, coming from you that means a whole lot - thank you so very much

Ryan, no, thank you for reading and caring

Thank you guys . . .
*smiling now again*
