One Must have Darkness to Offset the Light
Down Below by artemis53

I'm a Bitch of great proportions,
made full upon my flight
within the depths of shadows
that rule the darkest night.

The days I do not tolerate.
The sun I'll not abide.
I left the light quite long ago
with anger by my side.

My journey brings no color
upon the shroud I wear.
I take my captives as they come,
no deals
within the air
and the clock moves forward endlessly.
My pity is but sparse.
My sympathy is shallow
and only but a farce.

And I shall take your soul,
your hopes and dreams...
crushing them to dust.
So sorry to encumber you
and spoil your lovely day
but destruction's not a want for me,
but rather, it's a must.

There was a time
that I was free
and joy lived in my spirit
but times have changed with agony
and golden hues,
a memory of mirth...
I cannot hear
or see it.

So keep your distance
if you see
my form
within night's sky
and paint blood on your lintel
for then
I'll pass you




Author Notes
I'm working through this so please, just bear with me for a bit. This one is a little brutal but necessary for my journey. I have my 'Big Girl Panties' on and am 'ramping up' to take it ;-)
