- Books, Literature, and Writing
Dark Poetry Off the top of my Head
Just Writing...will take about 5 minutes...
I look around at the figures
The eyes seem to dive inside me
I'd push them away, but it's too dark to see
The menacing voices, the laughter it hurts
Pinch me to remind me I'm alive
Cause the darkness just settled, and I'm beginning to wonder
I bite down on my tongue, to cease what's to say
It seems forever, this long drifting day
Alone with my thoughts, but not so alone
A conscience tends to always have an opinion after all.
Walking alone, but a shadow's still there
Walking beside me, at the thread of my hair
It mimics my movements, it dances with light
Then it just goes at the coming of expected night
So I ask myself, what is there left for me
A world of nothing, that's drenched in despair
A group of 'friends' that can never be there
A family that judges, a job that's dead end
A world of nothing, with tight ropes and close bends
So walk with me now, laugh in each step
Cause without a smile, why open your eyes at all?
