Tempered Passion

Passion runs hot through these veins
But it’s tempered by the rains
Falling quietly from these eyes
That some days reflect dark gray skies
But the rain has not doused these flames
They are something that never tames
When these tears dry they will burn bright
Once again lighting up the night
It will burn hotter than before
This sweet passion that you adore


Life and Death

Life and Death live within these veins
Constant struggle but neither reigns
One will rise, the other will fall
Still both exist to heed the call
Life will heed to all that is good
Rising from ashes where it once stood
Reigning so brightly where it was once dark
Bringing so much to a site that was stark
But its reign will never last long
And soon more anguish will end its song
For the call of sorrow will bring forth Death
In one fell swoop taking all Life’s breath
This new reign so dark and desolate
Making the end seem so definite
But this anguish will one day fade
And so Death’s reign will then be swayed
Once more the power will shift
In and out their reigns will drift
