Poetry By: Caedes

Hmm a very different poem to my usual pieces some of you may not get it others may. i wont be offended if you don't though its a very complicated poem.

The closer you get to the light
the greater your shadow becomes
the more good i do
the more dark creeps in
closer, closer
i help one
hurt a thousand
is the light
really worth the dark
I turn over a new leaf
but my old life's close behind
everyday I'm reminded of who I used to be
take a look in the mirror and see the debris
who am i?
the angel in the dark?
or the demon in the light?
once apon a time i used to know
i used to let my darkness show
and now 'cos of you i'm lost
with no one left in this world i can trust
i choose my life, my future
though maybe it chooses me
maybe all there is, is the darkness
the light just confusing me
steering me from my true path
the one that ends in blood sweat and tears
maybe thats all thats left for me...
