Dark Embrace - Poem by Sara Jo Andrews
Enter the darkness my friend,
Come and follow me,
I will show you pleasures beyond your imagination
Sights beyond your dreams
Hush little one, don’t cry, mommy isn’t going to hurt you no more,
Follow me into the night,
There, there little one, take my hand.
I won’t bite at least not yet.
Your sweet innocence is a virtue, but it hinders you
Do you not see me for who I am yet? , for what I really have become?
Tell me my lush friend, what is your desire?
Do you wish to be one with the night?
Forever free of light? Come and play with me.
I’ll show you what is inside of you.
The real you, no one can take that away from you,
Oh, sweet surrender, breath like fire, don’t be afraid.
Give yourself to the night, the darkness eternity,
Forever you can fly by my side.
But wait; don’t cry, there is one catch,
You have to let me hold you close for a moment,
You’ll feel a nick, it won’t hurt much I promise,
But you can no longer see light but to roam at night,
Come here my child, let me set you free of your torment.
Don’t cry, it will be alright.
Lady darkness will take care of all.
Now I lay you down to sleep
To die before you wake,
But born again in new
Doomed to walk among the night and living
Is now your curse.
