WINGS OF DARKNESS


Don't leave me behind

Restless and dry

It's written in blood

We shall surrender or die.


There's no light in the distance

I'm lost and confused,

Your chains have been broken

And the darkness broke loose.


I gave you my word

Keep what I held dear

I was free like a bird

But then you locked me in fear


You shone like a star

When our paths first crossed

Now you've dragged me so far

That I count it all as lost


Your wings have embraced me in the darkest place

I don't remember; Was it heaven or hell?

You brought me to a whole new space

Where light is captured and shadows dwell


I should have seen that you fed on the lies

Knowledge is power, you say without breath

But how could I see when your wings blind my eyes?

Who shall live when knowledge was death?
