Set Me Free

~*~ A million silent whispers into the night Sad helpless children with no light Come take my life from me Set me free... The nightmare goes on Fueled by jealousy, now im gone On the whispers of forgotten dreams Awakened from dormant memories Set me free... Stupid men and their sick, stupid minds Remarks that cut and hands that bind Lost, left slipping on the edge of fate Bloody and bruised knuckles just trying for dear life to hang on Constantly we deny our own existence Set me free.. Letting the past consume us, as we dwell on hate Love all but gone from this world Misery left in its wake Foiled, manipulated and confused Set me free.. Mindless fools left paused as life carries on A puppet draped with tangled strings Doing what's expected not what we want So many dreams left splintered as fragments of life pass us by Set me free.. Forever clouded, lost in the smoke from bridges we have burnt Do we turn a blind eye as the world screams for help Muffled by societies pillow Do we turn away..ignorant and wait till its left laying limp Lifeless on the floor Our world no more.. Set me free.. ~*~

    we who write dark should stick together darkness is part of us some accept it and use has shield and sword . some are consumed by it and its very hard to come back once you are consumed by darkness there are always teachers, guides, companions, those that will stay by your side but soon the light burns that is when you must be really careful darkness can kill but it can save as well
