Black Horse Named Death

He rides in like a champion
On his black horse.. A steed..
I follow with my azure eyes
As the site of him fulfills a need.

Desire rides in one night
On a black horse named death.
He points a bony finger my way
Suddenly I am out of breath.

I walk toward him as a shadow
He takes my world away.
I am now surrounded by nothing
And standing in clay.

I try to touch his horse
But there is nothing there.
Desire lifts the atmosphere
Then takes away the air.

I fall to the earth begging to breath
It is another lesson learned.
When you play with darkness you don’t understand
You’re probably going to get burned.
