I've held your hands and kissed your lips
And the courage,the dreams,the faith
Has fluttered away to a place of hopelessness
I tremble,I freeze,I tread in your gates
And beat your darkness in my soul
A shroud of a vanity
That held me back
From conquering the world.
Many a days I pleaded for seperation
But like a loyal lover
You kept coming back
With black roses
To scent my soul in anguish
I'm a prison to your will
As I gaze from the fetters of my mind
Theres nothing left
But emptiness.

    Powerful images come to mind, like a burning finger on a stove, a bittersweet reminder that fire it hot and it can burn, swift grooves into the soul xxx M Rose xxx
