Embrace The Dark

The only light in the room

Is the glow of one lone candle

Sitting on the dresser

It flickers and dances

Making shadows move on the wall

It should set a romantic mood

But where my mind is tonight

It is an ominous warning

There are demons in the shadows

Thoughts creep in of pain and abandonment

Memories of lost love and unfinished battles

Hopelessness and despair slowly take me over

And in one quick breath I extinguish the flame

More familiar with the darkness than the light
