i cradle his darkness

Updated on June 23, 2012

cradle the shadowed parts of him

not unlike my own

held tight next to shades of mine

where once they were alone

ever grey and buried

dug beneath the earth of me

wondered why they never cried

or begged for light

never realized, they were unseen

bitter sweet and sorrow

painted veils upon kings men

they were the ones creating this

the blackened stairs that i ascend

truth and knowledge never touched

the grayness that i hide

but lack there of is what had fed

the shadowed beast inside

bull shit, hypocrisy, falling out

trying to fit in

seething for the opportunity

bitter taste of sin

intertwine your thoughts with me

I'm sure they mirror mine

and lead me up the stairs to light

let darkness make it right

swings and lightening bugs

sprinklers if we dare

and sprinkled along this dusty trail

run my fingers through your hair

hunt them one by one

my darkness and your own

and in the end ill die with you

you'll never again... be left alone

sweet with honey sugar,

hearts in shadow boxes

left on shelves while others played

soon our light will be whats coveted.

never know how you could be treated so..

a demigod to me

to turn your sweetness into rage

every one will pay'll see

little paper hearts of them

blown swiftly in the breeze

easy for hearts that aren't so heavy

to float from tree to tree

but yours and mine weighed down by love

i guess that's why you see

my hearts aground like yours

after the others floated away

the darkness that's inside you,

and mine...fed from the same






and shame

blank faces to me anymore

the ones who fed the rage

hate what they've created

and blame the ones in which they've made

so cradle your darkness in my arms

so akin to mine

who knew it would be inside the shadow

that love could be there to find

hating what I'm feeling

should have searched it sooner

for truths left untouched to be discovered

cant believe i found you there.

      Truly amazing how two hearts can connect so much yours and mine. One of the most beautiful poems i've ever read. I love it. Cradle my darkness my love.
