Darkness Falls

I sat with my son recently as he watched Legend for the first time via a DVD I picked up at Newbury Comics (I introduced my daughters to the movie years ago on VHS). Watching it again reminded me of just how cool the character Darkness is (see picture), especially when he asks "what is light without dark?" The following short verse is not about Darkness or the film, but was very much inspired by both.

I take to the sky, let my mind soar.
Thoughts of disease, of famine, of war.

And those who suffered such horrible things.
For I did much evil to earn these black wings.

With no hint of remorse, I fed my desire.
A world filled with death, my fate cast in fire.

All for nothing, betrayed by my master.
I laugh as I plummet, earth coming faster.
