This poem is the outline of a screenplay I’m writing.

You've seen beyond the dark
You've lived behind the light
What is it?

To you the truth is lies
To you life is a crime

Your lies make you survive
Your truth is where they hide

Dark rages deep inside
Light can't get through your eyes.

The secrets of the night
love burned out of sight
The horrors of the mind
The torment you must find

What is it?

Hi T.I.R.O - I'm experimenting with music making, and in need of a text I googled for poetry, and found The Torment. I would like to use it as the text for a song, that I might publish on SoundCloud. As you have the copyright's I need Your consent - could we talk using Soup Mail and I can give you a sample of the song ? Best Regards - AnIslander
