Overwhelming, the darkness

"Overwhelming, the darkness"

What is never seen,

Has never been.



Hey Darkness !!! You are but,

a lack of a spark.


By this awareness of your nothingness,

I know the truth of a lie.


So, who is overwhelming you tonight,

the star light or the moon light.?

      Thanks Missy for visiting. Yes exactly I meant the same.

      The darkness can get erased with bleakest of light.

      I also meant that ignorance that overwhelms us, goes with just a little spark of knowledge.

      Night sky for me is ignorance and sparks from stars and a full moon, are overwhelming it denoting it is no more effecting me.

      I'm drawn to the dark sky, and both star light and moon light fill me up with wonder. To me, I believe your poem is saying there is no darkness without the friend of light to see us through.

      I also think about it in a philosophical way, that one needs just a faint light (knowledge) to overwhelm the darkness. (Ignorance) which usually overwhelms in absence of light.

      Thank you noone for visiting and appreciating with a great comment.

      Nothingness of the darkness gives an entity to the stars and the moon. Without experiencing the new moon night the value of the full moon would be demeaned . Awesome poem sir.

      Feeling overwhelmed when darkness surrounds us is relatable. The shinning moon gives a calmness when darkness engulfs us. I like this!!
