Can you hear the whispers

Follow us into the darkness
Sanctuary is found in the night
Let us feast upon your innocence
Step away from the power of light

The shadows are calling

Exercise your freewill by defiance
Hearken to the voices whispering
Let us frolic in your disobedience
Darkest desires, yours for the asking

Let your spirit run free

Why spend your life in servitude
Remove your halo of perfection
Let us change your archaic attitude
The spirit yearns for abdication

With the demons of lust

Sinful pleasures caressing your palate
As we enlighten your virgin spirit
To the reality of your souls new fate
A new kingdom yours to inherit

Truly a beautifully written poem, Anthony. Couldn't help but think of the song "The Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera while reading it. Great work! Love, Carolyn
