Darkness surrounds me,
in fact, it's my name.
I am a plague that just won't go away.
I tear down families.
I ruin lives,
I am an evil.
In most, I reside.
People take potions to get me away.
Those never work,
do they?
I'm not a sickness of flesh and skin,
I am formed deeply within.
There is only one thing
that I do fear.
The spotless lamb can make me clear.
He forces me out
into the light
making me weak
beneath His might.
He takes me away a
and you are free
from the oppression that Sin brought thee.

I like your ballads, the ones i've read from you so far are for the most part quite good, not to mention relatiable. In the fact of reltgion at least, and even with a darker message about sin and twas not, you still managed to make the ending nice. It is hard somtimes for writers to had twists like that to their art, it requires a ceritan...eloquence. Again with a few gramatical mistakes, some places you should have placed a cama instead of a period but overall another great piece.

This is absolutely amazing!!!! I could imagine what you were describing, and the rhyme schemes were flawless! I didn't read your comment untill the end, but when I saw spotless lamb I knew it was God helping us through the darkness. Keep this up my friend!
