Darkness Became My Home

Darkness Became My Home
I've made a home in this darkness
I didn't want to be hear 
but I am 
I walked alone in the cold
I walked in the rain of time
I had no one to hold
to keep me warm 
I stand alone
but I stand bold
to the one that keeps my heart on cold
who cuts at my mind most of the time
I seen many places
many faces 
I always hear the screams
I feel the pains 
on those cold winter days
the hollow night
that make me cry
I  would always see a pale moon 
hanging down in gloom
Far ,far away in late June
Valleys and Lilly's
look so pretty to me
but when the cold winter air 
comes along like a sad song
all the beauty leaves the land
and fear takes another stand
I know Dark Angel is near
his eyes are always on me
he loves to watch me sleep
just to give me bad dreams.
