"We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided." Dumbledore, Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling.


You scream out in darkness,
another unwelcome night.
I hold you tightly,
willing you not to cry.

Sleep love, softly
Don't you cry.
I'll sing you to a restful sleep
With cursed lullabies

Dreams of blood,
tears flood your eyes
I'll sing you to a peaceful rest
cursed lullabies...

Death and danger haunts this night
I hold you tightly in my arms,
An urge I cannot fight
The wind howls against the windowpane,
it bangs and it snarls

Hush now, darling, close your eyes
I rock you to a dreamless sleep,
Humming cursed lullabies...

Cursed lullabies

Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep, it's such a bitter form of refuge, oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege, and everbody needs you. - The Killers

This is really good, and kind of haunting. Think that maybe you could spare some time and leave me a comment on my poem? If you can't that's all right, but I'd love to hear your opinion.

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."

This is good! =)

Would you check out my poems? Thanks, I need some more feedback.
