The Fire Garden…

The garden of fire…
Burning so very bright…

Trees are all ablaze…
So close to midnight…

Searching for something…
Within those flames…

Where demons dance…
And confusion reigns…

Following the feelings…
Wherever they may lead…

Tinged with a curiosity…
Driven by an urgent need…

To find some inner peace…
A tiny speck of clarity…

In the midst of the chaos…
Under a spell of insanity…

That can never be broken…
And won’t seem to abate…

Always full steam ahead…
Like a train that won’t wait…

Or provide any respite…
Nor give time to think…

As in the heat of this battle…
Broken black hearts sink…

And retreat into shadows…
Down Hell’s dimly lit paths…

Where people talk in circles…
As time silps through the hourglass…

Where all the rules get broken…
And the sinners live in fear…

Every minute of their lives…
And every passing year…

Never loving anything…
Living without any hope…

In a garden of pure temptation…
They walk a thin tightrope…

Praying they don’t fall…
Desperate they don’t fail…

And the demons of darkness…
Will not always fucking prevail…

She tried to hold on…

With all her power and might…

As the light that surrounded…

Slowly disappeared from sight…

And the cracks in the pavement…

Became too big to jump…

On that twisted road ahead…

That was filled with hills and humps…

And each of life’s molehills…

Were a mountain to climb…

That made her daily life…

Such a desolate grind…

As she lived in darkness…

Carried empty spaces within…

Where did this all start…

How did this begin…

As there was a time…

When life was so grand…

Filled with love and laughter…

And holding on to his hand…

But one wrong move…

Showed the fragility of life…

And wrong place and time…

He fell victim to a knife…

Which left her grieving…

And a lost, broken soul…

With so many emotions…

All out of her control…

Never allowed to recover…

Forced to walk this Earth alone…

The days passed so slowly…

With no escape from the zone…

That had trapped her soul…

Chained it up and painted it Black…

Whilst her remaining sanity…

Began to bend and crack…

But she tried to hold on…

With all her power and might…

To his love that surrounded…

As she finally gave up the fight…
