In my painting is a story of long ago
a story that needs to be told 
a shakedown of fear and darkness everywhere 
walking on shaky grounds soon will be found
the shallow of the foolish
the shame of the disrepute 
hide behind lies of falsehood 
darkness is out of control
you know how this old story goes
The feeling...there's more to the story 
that keeps us reading on 
''I feel there's something wrong here, 
You think this is too easy.''
Brutus smiled and nods his head 
'' You think I'm in some manic phase, 
that the truth will hit pretty soon.''
Brutus shrugged, then nod's again.
''Yeah, I guess so, 
I must paint something deeper, more dramatic. '' 
''You know what's going on here, Moonlight? ''
''What Brutus? tell me.''
"You are painting your secrets of your visions 
You know not to paint your story 
Dark Angel, is reading into your work 
he is wanting to know everything that you see
because he wants full control.''
"You are right, Brutus, what was I thinking? ''
Brutus rolled his eyes ''You weren't'''
''I think it's just that at some point I made a 
conscious decision that I will soon be free to do as I please 
without Dark Angel in my life. ''
''Good luck with that Moonlight.''
