Lead me away on ethereal wings
   dusted with darkened imagery
      that your brilliance brings
You've been sent from above
   though you may be "Down Under"
A touch of your glove
   has softened the thunder
      that has abated my life

These ochre refrains
   orchestrating the fray
      have bled out my being
   Cliched Heart
      over-blown, over used
Cacophony of strains
   reverberating my day
      have weakened this "mote"
   Poison Dart


Pinspots break through the blackened cloth of sky
   like clouds swept through a sieve
      illuminating the broken pieces,
         left of what is left of who I am
While "Belief" is ending I am wrought
   without the will to live
      imaginary "Golden Fleeces"
         tempt disillusion...I am damned

And so while weaving my own cyber-web
   with hands that are forlorn
and while losing my Main Passion
   I stumbled into "Passions" door
Then Dark Angel struck her caring match
   to see this one who's  torn
      an oxymoron born

Lead me away Dark Angel
   if that is who you are...
Dusted by you're hopeful imagery
the "Dark" meets the "Dark"
Our souls collide, coincide
Our Darkness shared...
   one hopeful, one hopeless
Spread your wings
   black as my essence
      to cover this Ephemeral Wraith
What Holy trough do you lead me to ?
   How I crave
      a Sanctuary where my soul could bathe

But and I...

We are just flesh and blood with different wounds
   and sometimes scars will last forever
Some wounds can heal if they are found
   ...others only fester

You go to Live, to Hope, to Dream
I go to hope to Live it seems...
   for I am "Down Under"
      even under you Dark Angel, the World
   Imbroglio...and I am asunder
      a tattered flag alone, unfurled

The "Low" came to its lowest point...

There're just so many lives I've died to Live
   to never find a home
      ...not even in my heart

But Dark Angel watches over my night
   she reaches out...
and hopes to have me see some light
   She reaches out...
      toward the one whose heart is dying
         within doubt...
Dark there a Miracle about ?

    (At this point I'll take a crumb of one)

What a gift you give her with these words! This is beautiful! Miracles happen all the time!  God is with us all the time, and He understands.

I really enjoyed this one! Two souls who reach out to one another in a time of need. Accidental? Some might say so. I say no way, a miracle indeed!

very well written...
great work....

If all was light...then I would have never learnt the dark...from which such truth evolves
from which evolves the light...
