Dark is Me

Where is my Light

In the shadows is where I walk,

tripping over light.

Looking up into the sun,

but all I see is night.

Loneliness has taken me,

tight by the hand.

Walking through the darkness,

and this twisted land.

Everything I had in life,

is now out of place.

Tears that were in my eyes,

now stream down my face.

A broken heart is what I have,

beating inside of me.

The pain is real, hurts like hell,

sometimes hard to breathe.

Darkness consumes me,

filling me with doubt.

Searching for the light right now,

I see no way out.

You want my soul laid out? here you go....

The gentle breeze bringing tears to my eyes,

memories fading into yesterday gone.

I weep for the light never turned on,

I stand alone as I fall.

It is there where our eyes first met,

under the big oak tree.

Dancing without moving,

floating without noticing.

It was in your arms where I fell,

in love with Love so intoxicating.

I open my eyes now and cry,

for the images burned in my heart.

Your smile kills my soul,

your whisper haunts my sleep.

I see now that I am nothing but a shadow,

only dancing in your candles light.

Weeping for hopes never coming,

dying just to take my last breath.

Where I am now is limbo,

a body with no heart to hold.

I cried enough tears to swim away,

yet somehow you hold me right here.

Embrace the dark to feel the light. Your sorrow is part of who you are, as you point out in your poetry title.

Thank you for sharing these emotions with us 4elements.

beautiful but sad! If darkness around you, you should know that little hope is infront of you. As long as you eyes can see and you heart still beating, your life will be out of shadows and filled with light. voted beautiful! It's my pleasure to invite you stop by my hubs: Will She Back Home, Lost in Love Ashely, Our Way to Paradise, A Morsel of Stones, Die For Her. Hopefully you will enjoy them. Nasser

4elements, Voted up, beautiful and awesome for it was all of these. And more. Keep up the great work. I am into poetry, but mine is abstract/prose. And right now, i do not have the nerve to publish any of my poems. Insecurity is a beast. Peace to you.
