Swiftly I Stand

Swiftly I Stand

Swiftly I stand among  owls that hoots
where my own existence is like the shadows
where the light fades deep into the night
it is adventure for me to see so clearly 
that stands before me 
an essence of an dimming bright
that choked out fear
that always stood near
where thoughts are frozen 
waiting to be un-iced
forever is dissipating
Oh, shifty night hold on tight
where Love will shine on high
that will tranparency ones life
to get things right
lets the evil flee from all who sees
where love is creating peace
where regrets run free
where endlessly debating
paralyzed the minds 
that cried most of the time
nobody is in panic 
to what is going on 
my complaints I am stating 
is the roughness of darkness 
that still playes around on the minds
that has been lost for sometime
where insanity unfade
where old memories are writen in stone
but life keeps moving along 
where the past made sad songs
being alone every night 
I just set down and write 
whatever it is that comes to my mind
I have nothing to wear 
my body is cold and bare 
with no love to hold
my nudity is a big part of me 
where life relief my pains
where I stand in the rain 
swiftly in darken dreams
I don't know all who is out there 
but I really don't think anyone cares
perhaps I maybe wrong 
while the old owl hooted on to a sad song
I am only a shadow of the night 
that walks around a ruined castle 
that torched out the light .
