My Darkness, My World

Source

Darkness

The darkness I see,
Exists inside of me...
Side by side we walk,
Often we have a talk...

The lights so hard to reach,
I see it in the distance,
I run towards the light,
To vanish all of my existence.

Standing in the dark,
Looking into the portal of light,
Reaching out to those who can't see me,
While I watch In the darkness of my world...

Seems like I'm falling deeper,
Inside of myself...
Ain't got no one,
But me, in my hell.  

I'm only of existence,
Of what I used to be.
But after I died,
This is what became of me.

Trapped between worlds,
I watch the boy and the girl,
Smile and play,
While I sit at bay...

I stare into the light,
See the other side,
Wonder if I'll,
Escape this darkness,
this hell...

Or if I'll ever,
Be like that boy and that girl,
Maybe one day...
The light shall come my way,
But for now...
I'm trapped in this jail.

Feels like i'm falling deeper,
Deeper within myself,
Who's going to come rescue me,
From this dark, dark world?
I call hell...

I lay myself on the floor,
I fall asleep,
I awake to a voice,
Calling out to me...

Sweet spirit,
Open your eyes,
It's time to go home now,
To the heavenly skies...

Grab my hand dear,
Don't be afraid,
Let's go...
Come on now...
We must be on our way...

A look of suprise,
Sit on my face,
A darkness lifted,
Light in my space,

I jump up fast,
Grab on to her hand,
As she gently guides me,
Off to a distant land...

I feel happy now,
That I'm not all alone,
The smile on my face,
Speaks for itself,
As I'm guided on home...  

The light slowly closed behind us,
As we drifted away,
The tortures nights,
Without a day in the sun,
I was happy now,
My new life's just begun...

@ Sligobay - Your very welcome! They are one of my favorite bands. They rock! "Nightwish" is another great band and another one of my favorites. There's many. I'll share more as I continue to write more poems.

Thanks for visiting again and for writing such beautiful comments. Cheers.

Your poem is very beautiful! I also had not heard of Sirenia and they rock, thanks for the enlightenment on two fronts.

Hello ROL:

Thanks for introducing me to Sirenia in these videos. I had not heard her before. Thank you for baring your soul in your struggle between light and darkness. Always move toward the light and keep smiling. Your words are well-chosen and effective. Cheers.
