The Darkest Side of Love

Dark thoughts

creeping into my mind

with the shadows of night

I find you there as always


the sinister master

of all my discontent

the one that made me unhappy

for ever after


balancing on the edge of insanity

replaying over and over again

the songs that remind me of you

like a mad phantom of the opera


while the notes crash in crescendo

the last tragic aria

we sang in together

while you showed me the dark side of you


keep hearing the echo

of the slamming door

the silence now weighs so heavy

you could cut it with a knife


oh, how I would love

to have you play with my mind again

just leave my heart in one piece

the glue now is coming undone


where are you my sinister master

turning my smile into a frown

there on your thrown

with you golden crown gleaming


while here I start drowning

in a dark whirlpool

storm clouds sending thunder bolts up above

lightning flashing, thunder crashing


into the depth of insanity I stray

and you, you are so far away

if you should suddenly appear

know I am no longer here


I’ve become unfeeling

numb no longer caring

my love now in tatters

shattered beyond repair

You rarely write on the dark side of love. Well done! and surreal...

Amazing, Rasma! This is quite different from what you usually write, but it's brilliant nonetheless.

Rasma,sensible approach to the same, never changing love, and I like your poem. WhyI do? - since "if " Dark side was discavered later, it must have been there before... more likely a forgery with wrong label on it... Truest love is still there now waiting for another moment.

Voted interesting.
