So, this is actually my first narrative poem. I was reading one that was featured on the hubpages home page and I was inspired to write one myself. So before I start i would like to thank Pachuca213 for unknowingly and unintentionally inspiring me. I hope you enjoy it. Oh and please give me your opinion of it. I'm even thinking of continuing it if the mood arrives.
Contrast I took a step into the dark, I feared what was ahead My brain was warning me of everything my body filled with dread I took a breath to calm my nerves But that only made them scream out I stuttered in my footsteps I stumbled all about Some people may think me drunk But I assure you that is false My blood is hot with poison My heart seeks for a pulse But in the absence of my soul My spirit seeks your cure But when it isn't there no more I seek for what is pure Your brilliance keeps me sane Your vanity so white But without your grace here now My lungs become so tight I crash into things everywhere From left, to right, tonight I cannot find my footing The darkness is too bright “Oh help me dear sir you I cannot find my way The moonlight isn't here tonight It didn't come to play” “Give me a hand or two Maybe three maybe four No matter how you do it Just lead me through that door” “But silly man there is no gate No path, No door, No where Just this alley all around you And for you, I do not care” He gave me a push backward He dare destroy my dream So now I have nil again Not even a single gleam Another step into the dark, not knowing what was ahead Hopefully I will find the way So I do not end up dead
