Walk With Me

(originally from March 2008)


I admit, this is inspired by a misheard lyric :p But it was such a cool lyric that when I discovered it was *not* used I had to do something with it, so here it is! (There’s a poetry challenge idea… write a poem off of your favorite misheard lyric, LOL!)

Walk With Me

Darkness wraps itself around you
Makes your fears and nightmares come true
In the shadows, can you feel me?
Creeping closer ’til you can see
So you stand amazed
You can not believe
I slowly smile
And you fall down on your knees
In my casket lay
All our hopes and dreams
Now resurrected
Why is it that you scream?

 Drowning in your own confusion
Your questions rising in profusion
All the prayers you cried have come true
From the grave returned to find you
And your tears they fall
Landing on the floor
Your trembling fingers
Reaching for my face once more
Whispered words of praise
Slip softly from your lips
All your desire
Burning in your unspoken kiss

 Against the night I’ll raise my voice
At your feet I lay this choice
The world of death beyond this portal
Will you dance with an immortal?
Lie in your grave with me
You can’t look away
I’ll taste you’re life
Save you from life’s slow decay
Intertwined we’ll be
For eternity
Just take my hand
And walk into the night with me

    what is the misheard lyric?

    • Joleene Naylor says :

      A Disturbed song – Inside the Fire

      what I thought it was:

      death, it lies beyond this portal
      Take the word of one immortal
      in your grave with me
      There’s another way

      what it is actually:

      Devon lies beyond this portal
      Take the word of one immortal,
      end your grief with me…
