I have walked in this valley,
hidden in the shadows
Feeling words creeping up on me
and disappearing before they spill forth
I see cruelty in the hearts of the pure
and beauty in the minds of the damned
Moved by embittered words
the cries of the injured bring a smile to my face.

Pain can be beautiful
Love, unremarkable.
No truth lies in the light,
but in the brilliant shadows I see.
