Love's Pain

Written by: Darius Knight

Within any depth of darkness there is always a small shred of light,
No matter how frightening chaos can be there will always be hope within the blackest nights.
One tear drop of happiness can rid the existence of terror in a person's heart,
And when evil is introduced to an random act of kindness it can be ripped apart.

The rage that exist in my soul stayed bottled inside for so long..I forgot the true
meaning of a smile,
I walk and talk like an happy individual but I was truly miserable looking for joy's
number to dial.
Every obstacle...every situation that came in my path I was responsible to fix it,
Each issue resolved...but the result was how much blacker my heart became while the
depression would sit.

I look around my aura wondering if I can ever be saved from the misery I feel,
Not all of us can acquire the heart as the great man of steel.
Though that's how I'm treated no matter how deep my pain may be,
And no one cares as long as the job gets done even if the pain is very easy to see.

Beyond the door to my heart I always felt only darkness lied behind it,
But...the moment you opened those rusty hinges I couldn't believe what I saw within it.
Light...strength...hope...emotions that I thought long ago died,
Everything I use to trust in went up in smoke as the negativity fried.

It's almost a shame that God had to personally send one of his angels to resurrect me,
Though I am thankful he sent you to bring back the man I'm suppose to be.
Right now it's very hard not having you in my life like you once were,
Neither of us saw the drama that arose and the stress that quietly concurred.

I am letting you know that you are my light,
The essence that keeps my fire burning bright.
Come back to me so I can once again feel the warmth of a peaceful home,
But from the way things are looking...I guess it's my turn to guide your way back home.
