Loving you is madness,
Like dancing with darkness
And submitting to its gentle

We’re surrounded by
The same demons,
You and I,
Wearing cloaks of lust
And secrets.

But we drown ourselves
In the River Styx,
An attempt to make this union clean.

We take death’s grip into our own
And gaze back at our
Reflections of love.

We transform this damned
Into something beautiful,
Like paradise.

Paradise for two souls,
Lost in the fire,
Trying to escape the burn.

Two souls looking for absolution,
For sins, we never committed.

You are a garden to me.
Where life and love are
Born and cultivated.

Grown with the intention
Of peace,
And watered with the
Tears of fallen angels.

No vines to untangle
No thorns to prick my

Because you are Eden to me;
Redemption in a kiss.
You are hope within the darkness
And the light I’ve yearned to see.

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.
