Darker Side of Me

Darker Side of Me

A Poem by NSmith

Another old song I wrote. Figured it'd be interesting to hear some input on it.


As I danced in the ditches

With the burning of witches

My heart burned with the flames


You had tears in your eyes

And you started to cry

With emotions that can't be tamed


I was once the bright-eyed

Until the old "me" had died

You're arms were still out-reached


I just turned them away

As I continued to stray

And let the cruel world teach



As I slip your embrace

I can see in your face

That you miss me

But all you can see

Is the Darker side

The darker side of me.


I saw a poor broken face

My heart gone with no trace

As I slowly drift away


But all I can see

Is the still loving soul

Who will save me from this place


Please continue to chase

Me out of this maze

And maybe you'll set me free


I will walk in my shadow

Til a light ever narrow

Will brighten my view, I'll see




As I enter embrace

I can see in your face

That you missed me

And never see

The darker side

The darker side of me.
