The Fight Within Her by Nikkij504gurl and Bellawritter23

Updated on June 23, 2011

Do I smile now or cry later

I walked the lands like a lost crusader

I met the light I see it close

From the grounds I arose

My soul that swept the hells

Released from the pits spells

From the pavement I was lifted

A woman he made so gifted

I was trapped inside that torment,

all those years lying dormant.

I could hear you from the other side,

You thought that I had died.

But I was silently awaiting,

silently comtemplating...

An inward struggle I choose to release

Killing my goliath my darkened beast

I slayed you once not twice again

For I lay you down to rest in a burning den

I see no evil for I see what’s right

My future beholds a ray of light

But that ray of light soon will darken,

for my voice you shall hearken.

No longer will I burn in flames,

The whole world will speak my name.

Inside you I now dwell,

Inside you is my hell.

You slayed the dragon,

but left the beast.

Till I rise again,

I will not cease

Hold your tongue do not speak

Slaughtered name no blood to leak

Inside you I draw my breath

Inside you a destructive death

A crippled spirit that calls its grave

To this dragon I will not slave

Wrists and ankles shackled tight

This line I draw you wicked knight

You lock me up inside your mind

with bars and chains I find,

but no amount of steel can hold me back,

I am not a prisoner for you to track.

You will bow down to me

the dark, so tempting.

I will bring you to your knees

along with the rest of humanity.

These bonds will not hold me long

for inside I am growing strong.

You're playing with fire, my dear

One wrong move and you're sure to burn,

You've had your fun,

now its my turn.

Fire you call this game you play

Forged metal they cut and slay

A prisoner of mine I place on track

A shadow that lurks with attacks

I hold my reign in this atmosphere

To you I will not bow and knee in fear

A covered chest with a sacred plate

Waiting to be called to thy Kingdoms gate

Place the condemned to burn with fire

Perceived the sound of a deceitful liar

I lay your head now to rest

Bound to execution at your request

To kill me is to kill yourself,

You, yourself, are risking death.

My execution is only the start,

Farewell for now,

you've done your part.

      You reach in and pull me apart,

      tears breaking in a heart already broken.

      Falling away in my eyes bleeding hope,

      without fear, without pain.

      Tasting in your lips my sin,

      within new reasons I cry.

      Holding you close as I fade,

      under new light lovers made.

      Kill my will in your heart,

      make me believe once again.

      Destiny crying to be free,

      without me holding onto your soul.

      I want to die in your heart,

      where I have always belonged.

      The whispers spoken in my ear,

      the lies I still belive.

      How you break me is my everything,

      nothing before as I am nothing again.

      To love you my weakness,

      to live only pain.
