Rising From the Depths of Darkness

Updated on March 25, 2013

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.


I am rising above

From your hate

Your hell can't trap me anymore

The chains of your deceit

Cannot hold me down

I can't stand this feeling inside

Your words

Your thoughts

Don't make sense to me anymore

Who do you think you are

You ride with your many masks

Deceiving the crowd

A jokester

A sinner

Makes you so damn proud

Taking control

You think you're always right

Beating everyone down in your spite

I will fight you till death

With my sharp sword

You pierced me enough

With your dark words

You saw me as worthless

Another face in the crowd

You didn't see the real me inside

You are so shallow

How dare you violate

With your toxic cruelty

You are satan reincaranate

Pretending humility

I will rise from the darkness

You left me in

You will see

In the end

It will all be alright

Being set free

Released from this nightmare

I will finally have my sight

I will be here just with me

My wings to take flight

      Really great poem-makes perfect sense. Satan is arogant and very evil. Breaking free from the devil is freedom from evil. A lot of people are so self centered and self serving which is a very bad way to be. Conceited people aren't very nice at all. Great hub.

      I can feel the hurt, been there, done that. I hope you are no longer there.

      I loved the poem. It reminds me of a marriage I was in at one time *laughing*. No,in reality, I saw it as a voice of one who escaped the wrath of Hell. Voted up and interesting. WP

      Caroline, great poem. Try to stay away from 'manipulators'. Some people are just so self-centered and careless. Nothing good or positive can ever come out from such behaviour.

      Super! Voted up and awesome. Powerful stuff Caroline. You wouldn't be talking about a dude with the last name of Dracula would you? Were he mortal you'd have killed him with your words alone. Loved this.

      Dark word can be devastating, and they do have the piercing strength of a sword as you skillfully demonstrated in the verse of this searing poem—well done.
