Let it take over (tenebris)

Updated on March 5, 2012

Add to my diary

of mistaken love only lust

Another name or initials

and falsley earned trust.

Write it down in anger

a fury of words,

to keep shameful lips sealed

and thoughts can be purged

of wanting desires

still unattained,

betrayal of a heart

yet to be tamed.

Lustful demon inside

like an unborn evil child

possesses my body

makes it go wild,

with fire and passion

but is only disturbed

by sex, hunger, and all

that could seem so absurd.

It mixes a potion

that causes no pain,

that i would embrace

rather than shame.

Oh darkness, take me

to the 9 rings of hell,

show me your pleasures

I have a soul to sell.

Take away my innocence

and my dignity too,

it's no longer my heart

for which i wish to be true.

I want to please my insides

fill them with fear,

happiness is far weaker

than what i see here.

Take my longing limbs

wrap them around,

strength, pride, and arrogance,

and all else to astound.

Anyone watching

in horror from afar,

this scene of wretched beauty

rich with blood and black tar

Swallowing the light

that once had a way,

and a hearbeat that once,

knew a reason to stay.

Thrusting away former

smiles and cheer,

kicking the memories.

licking the tears.

groping the curves,

of a future now lost

fingering hopes that have

now all been tossed.

Force me to swallow

misery and strife.

Rip from my flesh

this sorrowful life.

Take the abyss

from the void with no pity.

Mold it all into

beautiful atrocity.

Meld the anger with hate,

the lust with the crave,

show me the way,

take me as your slave.

Let me sink deep inside

your depths of despair,

it seems warm and cozy,

and sticky in there.

Oh darkness, I see now

the gloomy angel takes shape,

as i succumb to my grave

with no want of escape.

You've conquered another

beingless shell,

now share with the world

this story to tell.

      Its very much pain here. Every words has been as if been dipped in your tears of broken heart before putting in the rhythm of the poetry are doing a great job of sad poetry yet so delicate with much depth in it. My fav lines for sure are.....

      '......Oh darkness, I see now

      I pressed all possible buttons here.....sharing too.

      Keep up the good work ( only from writing point of view but its a strong HOPE that these all words here are only your POETRY not your feeling from the bottom of your heart).

      dghbrh, your comments themselves are beginning to feel like poetry to me. your words are always so kind and full of something to say. This piece is only part of my feeling, the very darkest part, however, is just paint for the pretty picture. No worries about me. I'm happy you enjoyed it, it is one of my better pieces in the last few months since i've hit a block. Thank you as always for your comment, ill be revisiting your page soon.

      Now, Huey19 (Amy), this work shows spectacular depth and scope for such a lean list of words, not perfect by any means, but the basis for a private tour of Dante's inferno, purgatorio, and paradiso all in one. I can't do justice to it now (the world won't let me stay up all night every night writing you decent poetry!), but I encourage you in the strongest possible terms. You have such talent and communicative energy and emotion, with deep life experiences to draw on and tell about. Keep honing your skills, study the poetry section in a good college text on literature, you have a future in the world of poetry if you stay with it.

      Love, Max
