Darkness feared and revered.

There's a time

and a place.

Where nothing is as it seems.

There's a fear

and a cry.

A sound that nobody hears.


An angel in the light. 

A devil in the dark.

But how is it that monsters hide

in the light?

Cause the light,

I fear. 

And the dark,

I embrace,


The light is where hurt and tears apply.

The dark is where I escape into the night. 

Escape from monsters in the light. 

Seen as true, seen as light. 

Darkness feared and revered.

Ironic, isn't it?


That the dark I used to fear. 

Is the barrier that protects. 

The monsters I ran from,

are now my friends.

For the most dangerous monsters, 

live and walk among us.

Seen as angels in the light.

Wow this is really good, I like how you used the words 'light' and 'dark' to emphasize your point somewhat. I like this~ >w<
