Darkness Is Rising… Be Afraid

Maybe it was the pain
The constant aching
That was changing me into something evil

I wasn’t sleeping well
The voices kept me awake
Whispering, so that I couldn’t quite hear them

It was driving me crazy
What were they saying?
What did they want?

What was happening to me?
I didn’t like what I saw
When I looked in the mirror

What I saw was a monster wanting his first kill
It made me shudder. I was no killer!
What the hell was wrong with me?

I had all the exams
Physical and mental
There were no answers, no diagnosis

I grew more and more confused and angry
I wanted to hurt someone

I only knew one thing
I needed to feed my hunger
I needed to kill or I would die

That poor spider never knew what hit him

The Fire In Your Eyes

There’s a magic I see
When you smile at me
The fire in your eyes
Lights a fire in my soul

You walked into my life
I didn’t stand a chance
The fire in your eyes
Made my heart dance

But what is it about you?
What is it I fear?
Why does my skin crawl
Whenever you’re near?

What is this magic
You hold over me?
Why do I feel like
Your hunger is me?

As you come closer
I finally can see
But there’s no time to scream
As you start to feed
