The battle through darkness and evil. The battle of love. Victory? or Failure? Who will win? Who will triumph over the other? Always a mystery. Who is the keeper? Someone holds the lock and key. Who?

Like a thief in the night
You stole my heart away
Clad in black
But shroud not in a shred of light
You came so fast
And swept me off my feet
Without a chance to scream or even run away

Your sing-song voice
Creeps deep into my mind
Like that of a spider
You leave no trail behind

Small steps are taken
Leading deeper and deeper
Until you reach my soft spot
Where I am the keeper

To soon a battle is ragging
The prize is something small
But its worth is so great
Not even you can press on

I may be weak on the outside
But hidden deep inside
I have the strength of many
And will never run and hide

To soon the battle’s ended
And I rise above your fall
My strength has grown even stonger
While yours dwindles oh so small

I watch you beg for mercy
My mind silenced by my will
I want to show no mercy
But can’t find the strength to kill

Slicing through the air
Swift and silently
My heavy blade has fallen
Just shy of your misery

My heart is full of hatred
And heavy with the pain
A cloud is finally rolling in
To release the pent up rain

Drop by drop it falls
Crimson just like blood
A river starts to form
Like veins flowing through the mud

My heart cries out for mercy
Like the mercy shown to you
You do not understand this cry
This cry for only you
