What Lived in the Shadows

I begged you not to
Fall in love.
Because what lived in
The shadows,
Were haunting reflections
Of my tears.

I told you not to die for me
Because my cursed soul
Is unworthy.

But should you choose to
Live for me,
I may just acquiesce.

I’ll reach from beyond the veil of
Darkness and bring you
Back to me.

Because my love is borne
Of nightmares,
Shaped in the bowels of
Heartbreak.

But it burns brightly in my darkened
Soul,
Because it yearns for you.

You call me an Angel.
I ask, an Angel of what?
Of Love?
Of Death?
Of Peace?

No, I’m no Angel.

For I would much rather taste
Your sins,
And hold you near my heart.
Take all of your transgressions
And bury them inside my scars.

Because we are but
Two lovers,
Condemned and forsaken
Floating in this river of
Sadness,
Until Chiron takes
Us home.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.

One thought on “What Lived in the Shadows

  1. People of the same, do fall together dear Kim V.
    “Because we are but
    Two lovers,
    Condemned and forsaken
    Floating in this river of
    Sadness,”
    Sadness, do gather the brethren spirits. Amazing artwork and words. I did enjoy.
