Jewel Thief



Dark is your heart, your soul is all darkness
Eager to swim in an ocean of bitterness
You cast a long shadow in dim rays of evening
Crushing the butterfly souls of the morning
A Man; too small, too mean too slight
To dare to brave the noon daylight

What made you as you are, Jewel Thief?
How could you let it be?
A life spent without feeling; stealing
The good things that you see
And in the taking, crushing, breaking
The very thing you need

Dark is your soul, your heart is all emptiness
Reluctant to face your own life in darkness
The light of the day is fading, is falling
The sinister shadows are beckoning, calling
A Beast; too small, too mean too slight
To dare to brave the noon daylight

You are the loser, lost in your darkness
Redemption cannot be bought with your time
So, banished be, into your emptiness
There to await some far higher justice
To come at your time of dying

What made you as you are, Jewel Thief?
What happened to your mind?
So strange to set out to destroy
All loveliness you find
And we don’t need your lust or greed
And we abhor your kind
