One glimpse of your purity blinds me,
Makes me long to possess it.
One word from your red, red lips
Can turn my ears from all others.
Do you know I exist?
I think not.
You are my whole world.
The darkness of my past reminds me,
I don’t deserve to know such light.
Should I drag you down,
Tarnish your shine until you are just like me?
I am tempted every time I am alone.
But your purity blinds me,
And I know I could not bring myself to touch you.

I truly enjoyed this the mysterious aspect is great and I loved how there was an evil yet loving tone. Great job and if you could read The Pretty One and leave a comment and rating that would be great thanks so much!!!

An interesting piece. I like it. As I read it I got the illusion of Light and Darkness as phyiscal beings. Darkness speaking of course. It's good.. I might use it as a basics for a new short story.
