The Rise of Darkness

Updated on February 22, 2012

The Rise of Darkness

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

It is without form, without the colour and nature of recognition,

yet it lives within us and serves its master without question.

Ever lingering at the periphery of thought it waits,

the opportunity to unleash lowly intent a matter of time.

Each thought, each vision passing, a brief consideration,

a prospect of weaving doubt and the possibility of resentment.

When a door latch opens it slithers in close to the ground,

disguised as a passing fragment of unimportance.

Then, undetected is works patiently, emphatically to its end,

subtle yet convincing, it colours each second of thought.

It questions logic and makes reality a blur of understanding,

confusing and dredging for past hurt and conflict.

When the spark of anger is finally found, it hones in and swells,

surging like a dark sea, building up and gathering past failures.

Irrepressible and unrelenting, it gains momentum,

overwhelming any notions of peaceful expression.

With the wrath of internal fire it unleashes its force,

like a volcanic eruption, vile and deadly.

It sprays out exuding the darkness, from which it came,

the eternal spore of hate and Godless purpose.

This, the darkness within us all,

is the death of love and the rise of the negative.

Beware; it lurks in the deep crevasses of our being,

awaiting the opportunity to live.

      Beware of the darkness for surely it lurks in the fiber of our beings when our thoughts are in murky waters. So be careful for each day they will rise and try to conquer the soul you tried so long to save.
