Safeguard

I must safeguard my soul
From darkness trickling
Cross my pallid skin
They say an invitation draws it in
Draws it in

Must barricade my heart
A dream’s a hopeless place
Here true despair begins
They say that praying merely draws it in
Draws it in

I must close every door
In solitude’s a sanctuary
No rejection of my deeper sins
And in surrender I’ll not draw it in
Draw it in

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
