Rising Within

its always darkest before the dawn

someone once said

but what about the dark that creeps

inside our head

clawing its way out screeching

in despair

blocking the light that resides

already there

do we let it tunnel around

our eyes

or wash over our every


or do we open our mind

and reveal

we already know it was paid for

and bought

with dark crimson dripping

down a pale skin

punctured hands and soul

rising within

while lightning streaked across

the sky

showing us clearly darkness is

all just a lie
