Depth of Salvation

By Midnight Phoenix

(I know it's been awhile since my last post and you're all expecting something good. However, you'll get this instead...)



Have you ever heard the sound of a dying child's heart
Or felt through its pain

Have you ever seen nothing but black, empty sorrow
Follow the rain

I can't believe this is what is like to be free
And I can't take it

And I won't be there so what does it feel like tomorrow
When tomorrow never comes

The emergency room acts as a window to salvation
Masked in light

Be patient my fair child, they won't deny you
Just follow the path inside

I can't believe this is what is like to be free
And I can't take it

And I won't be there so what does it feel like tomorrow
When tomorrow never comes

    No, you're right, this wasn't good, it was fantastic. Deep and stroking, demanding the reader to be aware. Missed reading you. ~ wen
