The light of dawn
How sweet it be
Waiting for mornings first light
The stripes of orange and gold
Drown out the retreating blue and silver
Driving away the night
Letting the day come at last
Then creatures of day
Come out to play
While some remorseful humans
Wish the day had never come
To cause them strife
To cause them pain
Wgen the night had comforted their sorrows
The mystery of their hearts known by darkness
No flesh and blood understands
What pain is to us
Only demons and spirits
Know our silences  cries
Taste the salt of our tears
See our scarred bodies
Feel the pain in our hearts
Hear the damned voiices in our head
Touch the cold blade against warm flesh
Forget the pain
Lose yourself to bloods ecstasy
The sight the feel
It becomes a want, a need
To be rid the pain within
But before we can extend the damage
Few find a someone
Special to our weary hearts
They make us feel wanted
Something never felt before
And very few of us find that little thing called love
Something few of us acheive
Our feelings of death come no more
As we sit in lovers arms
Feel the warmth reside within
Fluttering heart and pulsing beat
Of his and mine
What sweet harmony
