Found my home

Darkness was my lover.

But she only called when she
would hear my smiles.

She’d show up at my door
wearing dresses made of animosity fibers
and perfume de succubus.

While I strived
strived
STRIVED to find my way!

Thru impenetrable fog,
hands of solace
coated in wanton tears
would reach out for my all.

But, one day,
I let the decrepit elder
repo my sanctuary.

As I strived,
caressing my 2 guardian angels
injecting, I, with shots of joy.

I heard those winds of change.

But, this time, I grabbed my wings
manufactured in awakening cloth.

And I flew 21 floors high.

My new echelon,
with arms wide open,
held me upon foreshadowing’s chest.

As He
sang His chorus to me…

    Your mind certainly goes in whatever direction it feels like at the time... I liked your depiction of Darkness being a posh lady wearing fur coats... reminds me a bit of Cruella de Ville. Nice to see the happy ending though :) And I agree with you on Taylor Swift. I don't like her music and she's a leaning a bit on anorexia. Funny how in the 50s and 60s magazines advertised women's beauty SO much differently. With ads like "Put on a few pounds and your man is SURE to notice ;)"...

    Ha, good call. And thank you for that! Yes, how times have changed, indeed! I'm not very fond of her music, though I respect that she writes all her own stuff. :)
