Favorite Quote:
"Always do what you are afraid to do." - Ralph Waldo Emerson


As the dark swept over the valley,
The wind howled out my name.
Beckoning me to follow it, back down to Woodsboro Bay.

As the dark swept over the valley,
I felt evil seep in,
I felt the cold sweep over me, as the demons crawled out from within.

As the dark swept over the valley,
I sensed the night take hold of me,
I sensed its deadly grip, squeezing the life out of me.

As the dark swept over the valley,
I hope for light to come,
I hope for light to come, and burn all I have done.

As the dark swept over the valley,
I watched all my dreams perish,
I watched them fade away like the sunshine of a desert.

The demons crawl out from within- yes we all have demons. This is absolutely phenomonal. I love your insight. I would be elated if you gave me some feedback on my work. You should check it out- PLUTO especially. You are so talented. I am really impressed.
