Darkest Poetry.

Updated on November 15, 2010

Darkest poetry,

breathing down my neck.

Last time.

No more.

What will become of me.

When the light burns my eyes,

and you're not here next to me.

Why am I not surprised?

Why do I cry such tears?

I am the fool that shall be fooled no more.

Leave me be in peace,

the damage is done now,

just let me be alone.

In the words of a golden legend,

whose lips gazed upon the silver screen,

"If I am going to be alone, I would rather be by myself.'

Never again.

The pain stops here.

All that is left here is,

Darkest poetry.

 

~Laurie~

      Thank you Ahorseback. I read yours and I have to say I will be back! I love poetry, I love the words that spill onto the page and make us picture what they speak. Thank you for your compliments, and it is a pleasure to "meet" you.

      Blessings,

      Laurie

      This is sad and well written. I wonder who said that silver screen quote...?

      Yes, those dark places where some of our most profound words come from. Those dark places where are experiences were shared and perhaps dark and haunting, but expressed in the written prose.

      Thank you Saddlerider for your encouraging words.

      Blessings,

      Laurie

      How piercing to the heart this poem takes one. The darkest places I understand and words come to me as they do you from visions. Last night very late I put two poems to pen and they were placed in front of my eyes as I wrote. This work is electric and consuming. Loved it. Bravo

      Greetings Epigramman,

      Thank you for dropping in and it is a pleasure to "meet" you! I enjoyed reading your pages and found them a true delight. Your prose is awesome!

      Why thank you kindly for your nice compliments about my writing. At times while writing poetry, it seems to come from the deep part of my soul. As if the words just appear.

      Blessings,

      Laurie
