question Untitled


I am the angel of darkness
Shadows cover my perception

Crying a river of my sorrow;
A river of undeniable death
Each day I swim,
The less time I will have to endure the cruelties of this world

Covering my soul is a blanket
Of impassable depth
No one may ever remove my soul’s thick covering
Though, I’d like to see them try.
My blanket is depression
Which shadows my life long river of sorrow.

I desire the image of perfection
The only thing that I cannot achieve.

The arms of darkness grip me tightly
Throwing me askew from the surrounding world
It’s arms are as though, comforting to my soul

I am the princess of the stars
And the queen of the moon.
