" Soft Stares of Death "

While the darkness unfolds,
You calmly embrace me,
Your reassuring hold,
Others just cant see,

You crawl through my mind,
Time never a factor,
I know your lying to me,
Fallen angel turned actor,

Keeping my hopes alive,
Just enough to keep me miserable,
Turning my love into hate,
And my gut feelings into principles,

Always taking my loved ones,
Whenever I least expect it,
Never making it easier,
Or allowing me to admit,

That I am your slave,
Have been through many years,
Never knowing when your coming,
Leaving happiness in tears,

Ive begged on my knees,
Ive tried to love you in vain,
To please come and take me,
Take me away from this pain,

Until I see you one day,
In your arms my last breath,
Ill savor your stares,
Your soft stares of death...
