WHEN DARKNESS DESCENDS

WHEN DARKNESS DESCENDS
AND PRETENCE ENDS.
AND THE REFLECTION IN THE MIRROR
IS A MELTING MASK OF HORROR.
AND THE DEMONS OF SELF-DOUBT
SOW THEIR LIES AND SEEDS OF MALICE.
AND EVEN YOUR HOLY GRAIL
SEEMS LIKE A POISON CHALICE!
WHAT THEN SIR KNIGHT,
WHEN YOUR MUSE IS SILENT
AND EVIL THUNDERS THROUGH THE NIGHT?
WILL YOU FORGET YOUR HOLY VOWS
AND PROMISES MADE
SO MANY SWEET KISSES BEFORE?
OR WILL YOU WAIT TILL DAWN
AND SALLY FORTH AGAIN!
BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT YOU DO,
THIS IS WHO YOU ARE …………….
THE KNIGHT OF THE WANDERING STAR!

Currently unavailable for purchase



A PIECE INSPIRED BY THE QUEST……FOR SELF UNDERSTANDING… AND OVERCOMING THOSE DEMONS OF SELF DOUBT. I AM NOT THIS BODY!!!!!!!!!

    Thought provoking as always !

    Yes it takes a serious turn when one reaches a point of end all pretense ….one dares not peep back into self accumulated follies all and devil seems to stare !

    Well if there is still left some good sense one must prefer taste even self made poison ….it can bring back some good though that was never there …because if one waits further the compulsive poison one may have to drink then would prove much more bitter !

  • THANX MY FRIEND!!! YES…LOOK FORWARD, BUT LEARN FROM PAST ERRORS!!!!
