A Walk in The Dark (Act II)

Peeling bark and newborn cries

Concealed in the shame of her lies

Screams

Far off the wolves howl high

Into the moon new life nigh

Bloody

Messes of her life she still tries

To no avail fails, a roll of the die

Murder

Hands hold cold corpses twin lives

Sink deeper together in two dive

Drowning

Tears split water sharper than knives

Cut her cheeks open but still alive

Out

Gills form she swims with the tides

The other life swims within inside

A Walk in The Dark (Act I)

Skin sheen glisten in the moonlight

Soft dove no peace uptakes flight

Leaves

Forest flourish orchids in the night

Darkest beasts hide fear holds tight

Fallen

Porcelain maiden white dress with skin light

Tears fall blurr ponds both eyes lose sight

Never

Escaping feelings those who lose the will to fight

Blind prey prays to survive an encapsulating night

Return

Run barefooted bloodied skirt tattered tights  

Heavy breathing howling labored push might

Hear
