In Darkness You Dwell

Poem By Elena Lempp

You cower in fear
In fear of the light
Oh fallen angel
How far have you gone
Why is it that laughter
Is the happiness
That hurts you
Why is it that grins
Are the thing you despise
Your deepest desire
Is the peace of the dark
To fade away
Into the pits of death
Oh fallen angel
You crave the light
That tears you apart
But you are the darkness
Forever alone
You watch the angels
Singing and dancing
You watch their heaven
With tears in you eyes
You watch from a distance
From your sinful exile
Oh fallen angel
Your isolation is self-made
Your seclusion your fault
Cause you couldn’t deny
Deny who you are

When I look upon your face
I see it glowing like a fallen star
It is no wonder that you coat it in darkness
Your sparkling hair is flowing over your shoulders

Choosing To Live

Feel the warmth of the sun shining on your face
Feel the wind playing softly with your hair
Hear the river streaming slowly
And sense the firm ground under your feet


I feel like I have lost my way
I'm wandering about in darkness
No stars to guide me in the clouded sky
My steps are tentative
