As The End Draws Nigh...
by Broken Angel
We are opposites -
a strangely dual mixture
of shadowed radiance.
We are both fighters, you and I
the difference lies only
in our manner of attack.
You are illuminated - a child of the lightning
futilely making half-aimed strikes against the darkness
Screaming your half-understood truths
directly into the ears of the uncaring.
a willing recklessness to sacrifice.
You are indeed the child
of the truth you have sought for so long.
And I - I am hidden.
I am your secret counterpart, moving within the shadows
the darker instincts of your soul
made manifest -
made flesh -
A realization of the deeds you dare not attempt.
I provide fuel for the fires of your hatred
for the fires of your determination.
Secrets half-whispered to you
through lips that crave your taste
will, eventually, become
the watch-fires that consume the darkness that is my refuge.
as the flames of revalation sweep inexorably towards me
I shall stand revealed
all parts of me, missing and scarred alike
before your eyes.
Will you then finally comprehend our similarity -
or will you look me in the eyes uncaring
as you pull the trigger...
