Step into darkness......

A feeling from nowhere kindles 
  The flame 
 I step into darkness
Caressing the pain
  Embracing emptiness
  Flirting with death
A fight between anger and sadness
     Into the darkness
Nowhere left to leave
So I long to bleed
A crimson Red
The lonely dead 
forever seek the warmth
But cold inside                                                                          
  forever rides
Pale a winters horse
Pray release My heavens
Yet bound by earthen bones
Always there are the shadows
Alone….alone…..alone……..

    Such an indepth way to search ones soul. Your words lead me to search my own. "Embracing the emptiness"... wow, I love this line for in the stillness we shall find peace. Awesome. Smiles from Lolita adding to my favs!
