"Darkness,The Melody Of A Poets Love Song"
My music, the words I've searched high and low for,
The words that have haunted me ever since I was a child,
Came to me tonight as I sat here in total darkness.
Darkness, comforting, cool, even sensual, yet so alluring,
Whispers of nighttime calling out for all to sleep,
As if like magic the words to my song came to me.
A lifetime spent wishing and praying for a love so true,
All the loneliness, the sleeplessness nights, the heartache,
A soul crying out praying for the love of a lifetime.
Words to a song I so wanted to capture on paper,
Thinking once I had written it all down,
The day would come when I could sing it to you.
Love songs written like a magic potion for the world to see,
Telling of the way our souls would unite in the darkness,
And the words came to me as I saw my love is my loneliness.
Loneliness is the love song that every poet knows so well,
The words, the feelings, the emptiness, the void of darkness veil,
Is the love song every poet has written since the beginning of time.
Oh darkness, my loneliness, is the love my heart has ached to hold,
Every word is a picture written and painted in verse after verse,
For within thy comforting alluring spell a poet creates the melody of songs.
