Alone in Darkness

I sit alone in darkness
Dripping blood
Like midnight rain
So dark I think 
This can’t be real
The prostitutes are shivering
Leaning on the bar
They look and turn away
I call their names out softly
But soon they turn to clay
My mind upon the bible
As my dreams begin to decay
In midnight dreams I am trapped
And you’re so far away
I grasp the cross upon my chest
And put it to my lips
A final kiss before I go
A wish upon your soul
Save me now
And I’ll be true
Please don’t damn my soul

    It's good to turn to God when enshrouded in darkness. He will see you through and through. A very interesting piece you have composed. Always, Laura

    I am slowly turning towards the light. I need to find faith but it's hard to find the truth. Kilmer
