SECRETS I HOLD WITHIN

SECRETS I HOLD WITHIN

I stretched out upon my cold lonely bed 
where I was once wed, 
my thoughts of my beaten down past 
made me feel I was on the edge of time, 

Oh, how my poor heart hungers deeply 
for true love to be knocking on my door, 
But that is something I could only pray for, 
I think about what my life could have been
With he how truly loved me deep within, 

But all I ever gets is a glimpse of him in visions 
or old memories; 
the tears begin to flow 
while I start to feel Dark Angels rage, 
I know he knows what it is I craves
that is why he gives me more pains.

My eyes are shut as if I was truly blinded, 
I didn't want to see him staring at me, 
Something so painful is knocking deep within my soul, 
I felt I was about to lose control
Like he was casting his magic on me.
Oh, please someone Help me! 

I would hear him say; 
No prayers are allowed in this place, 
Get up I say, off your bed and stand before me, 
Open your eyes I have a surprise for you, 
As soon as I open my eyes, 
He blows rose dust my way, 
I felt I was about to faint, 
Before I knew it I started acting strange, 
When I looked at Dark Angel, 
I thought I seen my prince standing before me.
