Wings Of Darkness

My warrior:
Bind me within your embrace
My defender:
Bestow me with your grace

I seek your help to obtain the unseen
I need you to blind me from the light
Never let me see my weakness again

Blanket my fears so I won't cry
Cease the false hope from shining in vain
Ward away the lies that hide behind my eyes
-
Morph this disaster into a calm night
Burn the dying sun out

Darken the nightmarish sky
Let the ominous clouds melt

Lock away this cursed gift of sight
I no longer desire it

Shut out the world from you and I
I yearn for the abyss

Rip away my self-hatred
Bring back my innocence

Obliterate the life I created
And color this reality obsidian
-
Let the void consume
Paint my essence black
Devour what was once called truth

My faith is in your hands
I profess it all unto you
I am under your command

My savior:
Cover up my exiled heart
My protector:
Wrap my soul inside the dark
I lost myself in life
Fallen into blackness
I found myself in the night
Coming into a forgiven darkness

I adore how dark this is. It is simply amazing, and I feel a connection with the words, as this is how I've felt many times before. :llama:

Thank you.

This is an amazing poem. Astonishingly saddening; makes me appreciate life more.
Makes me think of Riku from Kingdom Hearts.

Loved it. So much feelings are added to this poem that they're clearly expressed, so readers can feel the speaker's pain

You're too kind ;)
I sort of got the idea while walking down this long, long, long road one night the other week, hardly any light source what-so-ever. Scary part was that there was a cougar sighting earlier that same day x.x

This has become one of the poems close to me, in a different way.....it's hard to explain.
Thank you <3

Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback. I was sort of taken back by the way the words kind of fell into place. It's like it was just waiting to be written. ;)

It's fantastic when the words just come to you, it's as if it were writing itself.
You have great talent, can't wait to read more.
