Hero in my Heart...ll (a collaborative venture w/ElleCole)
*for anyone willing to understand this better, please go to ElleCole's page for the beginning to this story
she's an outstanding, lyrical writer
an' inspired this response lol*
She thinks of me
as Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde-
It's a damn shame, because
she knows not from the fear I hide...
I think it's my pride,
past pains buried to the depths
n' yet, I can't put it aside...
Always had hoped she'd see
me as her hero, that's what I wanted to be...the 'day saver' the 'pain slayer' a savior for the love
I joyously gave her...
So strange, she never can seem
to see, she's the HEROINE who
I've wandered, worthless,
hopeless... emotions churnin'
within...not a day or night-
past without the quakin' tears
my ears, still hear the endless
quiet of my life...
Though, I'm supposed to be
her hero, I don't know how to
tell her so... I try desperately
to fend off the 'demon's light...'
Sad, I know, that she thinks me
of such a darkly, split personality
when the truth is this reality...
HERO, I only wish to be,
but to me the REAL hero is she,
a woman of unflappable faith,
an angel who's unlocked the gate
-way before I could recognize
the state...of my beaten heart...
