The Master Comes

I missed you tis true, and my love is yet strong
My heart skips a beat like notes in a song
It ponders the heart and the mind is not clear
The memory brings pain and the eyes shed a tear

Awake in the dark as I search for what`s right
The dreams and the thoughts take control of the night
A song in the distance brings emotion too strong
A lost lover who sings about a love that’s gone wrong

The master still calls me as night is her lair
I run from the shadow I feel the despair
I finally give in as there’s nowhere to run
I must give up the fight as the damage is done

The morning shines bright and drives away fear
The night so lonely, your presents not near
A welcome return from the night, the abyss
Yet through all of the pain I still long for your kiss

I think that I see you in places I go
I run fast to catch up but it’s no one I know
All of the places which memories surround
There no place I can go where your ghost is not found

I dread the suns falling and the night almost here
Once again I`m a prisoner of shadows and fear
Your memory commands me like master to slave
To again kiss your lips is all that I crave

As the night closes in I hold on to what’s dear
The memories I hold even if you`re not near
I will treasure you always alone in my bed
 A slave to the master until I am dead

I love writing about the raw, down-to-Earth, heartfelt realities of life. I love to write in a way that reaches into the human soul—to take the greatest pains and struggles in life, and make them a blessing to others. Fantasy is a wonderful, interesting thing—but real-life situations, feelings, fears, and dreams are an unexplored ocean of stories that need to be told." ~ ~Scott Biddulph~
