Stay In Shadow - Poem by Eric Elliott

Dancing lights in my mind
shadow craws the places it left behind

light and dark pull to and fro
the only prize is my soul

the darkness that creeps within
tells me of hate and sin

the light I run to taunts with me
life with a truth of glee

try to replace hate within
with a mind free of sin
but darkness closes in

the light fades out
pulling and running I shout

it consumes my feet I cannot see
whispering to me that I’ll never be happy

so I cut myself and start to bleed
hoping someday the light will come back for me.

I hold on to candle light
to hold me in darkness though the night

I see that distent light starting to bend
and my broken soul starts to mend

I stand and can finaly see my legs
and I walk to the edge

the place where light and dark meet
in an attempt to make my soul complete
