Playing a role, that easy, but being yourself, that's a challenge.

- Ms. Darbus (HSM3)

you come to me

most nights

Fear in your heart

Dark on your mind

your soul is plagued

by the Past

it refuses to leave you

it grabs hold of you

and drags you under

makes you unsure

if you'll make it through 

another night

the strength in your mind

might not be enough


but it doesn't have to be

because i am here


yes i am here for you

and yes i want to comfort

and protect


but there are some things

we as humans

cannot do

i cannot save you from yourself

nor can you keep the demons

from your heart and


with out the breaking of both of them

(and please don't break your soul

or heart

they are such precious things)


you wish to fight

but can't 

and the Darkness threatens

to take you again

but you hold on 

another Year

another Month




you struggle and 

walk through the 

desert of darkness

every d**n day

of this life you claim

is cursed


you live in your own personal


and it kills me

to think there is nothing

i can do

except pray

on the sidelines

pray on the sideline that

you'll make it thought

the Night

i wish 

i could be with you 


and comfort you

but i can't 

we are seperated by 


and time

but i know a One

who transcends both

and he has offered you

His love


but still you walk through

the Desert

and it kills me

that you see the love offered

but you dont take it

or you say

"i don't need this"


you ignore the Love placed in your path

i wish i knew


i wish i knew the words

to say that could make this 

all okay

but i don't

so hang on

through this next Night

through this Day


Month Year

hang on to

this supposedly cursed Life

and i'll continue

to pray 

for this suffering of yours

to cease


and here you are again

you come to me


with the Darkness on your mind

and the Fear in your heart

i wish i could do more

i wish i could fight your demons 


but i can't

and it kills me

that they are slowly
