“There’s a Darkness” by Leonard M Parks


There's a Darkness trapped inside my head
That somehow is always near
There's a Monster underneath my bed
Can't see but I can hear
There's a Memory that keeps haunting me
It will not disappear
There's a Panic cold just like the sea
Whenever he is near
There's a Pardon that they want to see
But I cannot be sincere
There's a Demon that is in my face
The same does not appear
There's a Hate in me I cannot place
No blame for my tear
There's an Angel looking in my eyes
She whispers in my ear
There's shelter when you free your cries
I'll help you with your fear
