Creatures Of Darkness And Light - Poem by Tom Renney

I stand at the brink of the fiery abyss,
in need of the taste, of deaths bittersweet kiss.
My passion for ages has known no respite,
simply a creature, of darkness and light.

Forever it seems I have waited in vain,
to drink deep the draught of my loves gentle pain.
To devour the flesh of my hearts mate and then,
through dark magics, to conjure her sweet form again.

Ages and ages it seems since my flower,
went forth in her search, of new passion and power.
Little she knew that beyond the abyss,
only lonely regret and colourless myth.

Like a bird on the wing I did let go her soul,
in hope she'd return from her search for her goal.
Unknowing the bleakness of what was above,
forgetting the joy of the pain that is love.

Forth from the darkness, the deepness, the night,
I journey to find her, I suffer the light.
Seeking her soft soul, midst slag and debris,
to find her, to bind her, to set her lust free.

In the cleft of a shadow and clinging to dreams,
there now I see her, cold and withered it seems.
Her colours are faded, breath shallow and weak,
her eyes glazed in dullness, unable to speak.

Swift I descend from the heavens blue height,
to enfold her in dark love, protected from light.
Mighty wings cover and talons take hold,
of this sweet sleeping form, so delicate, so bold.

The ground shudders at my voice as it opens the way,
we return to the dark void past boulders and clay.
There at the brink of the fiery abyss,
we drink deep, each others soul, in deaths final kiss.

A spark is reborn and I fan it with verse,
that is soothing and healing, to remove cold days curse.
My passion and yours reunited through plight,
Two simple creatures, of darkness and light.
