Shadow World

It's enveloping my heart
And   tainting   my   soul
I've been corrupted by the dark
A   new   power   to   behold

I'm too far gone already
Just   give   in
Accepting my tragedy
A   new   path   will   begin

Transform into what I dreamed of
No   longer   afraid
The road to peace will be victorious
A   triumph   so   great

I closed my eyes for the last time / I watched it all disappear
I left behind my old life / I've become what I've feared

I know this path is one that very few desire
But what's done is done
Never again will I look into a mirror
For my darkness and I have become one

It's what I've always wanted
So I tried to cast aside my guilt
But I will always be haunted
From the innocent hope I killed

It's blinding my morals
And   embracing   my   greed
I left behind my sorrow
And   gained   a   new   kind   of   belief

I've done it, I've really done it
Dawning   this   new   dusk
I've made it into the darkness
The   light   was   never   enough

My metamorphosis is finally complete
Obtained   obsidian   eyes
I will never again taste grief
Overcame   life's   demise

I let all the pain fade away / Now I'm moving forward
This is not a grim mistake / I am meant for the shadow world
Whispers told me of my downfall
But I defied the prophecy's and rose above all

And in that very moment, I knew it was already too late
My   vision   has   adjusted
The memories of my former life all just slipped away
My   light   has   faded

The last of the fallen sparks fluttered in the distance
My   hope   has   been   obliterated
The shadows rose to claim their long awaited radiance
My   destiny   was    always   fated
In my heart, I lost it all
To this very second, it's still my fa

Every little promise of hope that you foolishly make up
Slowly melts back into nothingness, it now belongs to us
The light you created will never be as bright as it once was

Please, play us one of your sorrowful lullabies
Let our shadows leak the shapeless tears as we cry
And don't stop, continue on late into the ominous night

Slit   Slit   Slit
Blood from my fingers escape
Drip   Drip   Drip
Tears from my eyes evaporate

The voices in my head sing like a demonic choir
The racing thoughts fill my mind up with this despair
The color of my irises burst with

this reminds me of the song falling inside the black.

Hehe, that's the second time someone has mentioned that. The first time someone said that to me I checked the song on youtube and instantly fell in love with it. I have it on my iPod now. It's a really good song, so I take it as a compliment. :D

welcome. :)

You're welcome. :) The lines which are problematic are the following: "The road to peace will be victorious," "I know this path is one that very few desire," and "My metamorphosis is finally complete." They just have a few too many syllables.

Ahhh okay. I agree with you on those ones. I know when I was writing it- there were more lines like that, which had to be scaled down to a certain degree. Some lines didn't get scaled down though. I'll be sure to make note of it, and maybe come back to it in the near possible future.

Thank you for your honesty! :D

bleak... I like how you have the whole vision of never being able to rise up from the ashes. Defiantly a downer, but it's written so eloquently. :D Good job my friend.:D

Thank you Aaron.
It's the second version of this. It was hard to rewrite because the first version was like a first person then switching to second third person kind of thing. It was back and forth, which I felt was too "all over the place" so in this revised version I kept it simple enough to where I liked it.

Well, it's not easy doing a whole perspective change. I give you serious credit for doing that. *nods head in the affirmative* I wouldn't have even guessed you did that. It flowed very well. :D

I love the premise of this piece, and the wonderful language choice. The rhythm is inconsistent in some places, but I think you did an excellent job! :)
ImmortalizedLies Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Aww, well thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you liked it.
But if you don't mind, since I'm a paranoid perfectionist, could you point out which places you meant? Maybe I can tweak it.
Thank you again.
