The Darkness - A Poem



The darkness seeks me
And taunts my soul
It threatens to consume

Taking away all that is good
Tainting all that’s true
Making me wonder will it ever end

The pain and sorrow
Aches my bones
And strips me of purpose

Sometimes in the silence I wish
I could succumb
And close my eyes one last time

But in me there’s a yearning
That sees the light
Aligning my focus and keeping me aright.

For if I ever let the darkness feed
The nightmarish emotions
Would steal my life

Yet crack of dawn
Bestirs my spirit
Awakening in me a need to go on
