You appear hand in hand with twilight-

It's thebeast you are...I hearit howl.

So loose,I linger. darkness forms pre-night.,

You'll find me, and devour me. think it not fowl.

Rather, think it not too fowl, for you have taken me!

Freely attatched and loose as the wind,I come.

HaveI not what you tested last time...Ability?

HaveI not lived up to who you thinkI am?

Silence screams too loud a sound to hear,

My heart breaks somewhere inside me -I feel the feeling.

It paces and pounds - it's somewhere around..so near.

Its walls breaking down the fear, racing, reeling.

Drop. drop. And the rain wont stop!

Drowning tearsI might have cried-

To cure the cold,old fears, new hope,

And endurance - all this with a broken pride.

Nature calls thy empty soul,

Be back now, or not at all.

Breathless and burning- beware, you bite!

The wet slowly gushing out of my eyes.

And you've seen dawn coming with its revealing light!

And have left me alone with my sighs!

With dawn comes my salvation, dear ghoul!

And a tiny scar for a soul that must learn.

Play me like a game but i'm no one's fool-

I'll be on my feet just as quick asI can.

But when night descends, I'll be free again!

My spirit lighting up the dark night as does the day sun.

And for the lightI create you shall seek the path so plain...

Too dazzled to keep from sparing the night's lantern
