Dark Lover

Sleep so deep it never ends
Envelope me
Wrap me in your dark arms
Give me your lovers kiss
Remove me from this house of distorted images
Let me sink into your softness
No one left to dissapoint
Not even myself
I wonder
Will you keep your promises?
Are you my enevitable companion?
Do my paths lead to your boudoire?
Will you betray me?
Will I be brought to the gates of hell
by you who masquerades as my lover?
I hold hold myself back 
for a while longer
Allowing myself to be lifted
Seeking light instead
Feeling it's warmth on my face
Renewing my strength
Laughter bubbling from a place long forgotten
Desire to disappear fading
Listen to me singing
Yesterday is not today
I am still me and yet I am far from the same
I now wish to reside in the light
You no longer seduce me
For we were never meant to lovers

Suicide is both a near life and near death experience.

    The laughter does seem to fade away when we hide in those shadowy places.... Thank you for suggesting this poem, Richard. I really enjoyed it, and the message of wanting to stay in the light, never to be seduced again by darkness.... Terrific writing!

    Hi Richard, I'm glad you pointed me In this direction my friend This Is indeed an excellent piece. Such peaceful words flow from the Soul onto the page and paint the picture of seduction. The dark Is always at odds with the light and so It Is within each one of us. There are many kinds of seduction. You have formed this piece In such a way Richaed that ones mind can take a few different routes In each read. Love It. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    I felt myself in the spaces between your every word. I find those places very hard to find. Thank you for allowing me to see inside those feelings again. Awesome work, as always.

    One can be one self but still not be that one you use to be, it's like been trapped but you are still that same person in the outside. but in your inside you have change, this is me. I feel the same in the outside but inside I am a different person. Very nice poem?

    oh wow, the beginning of this reminds me of one I wrote long ago where I compared the dark lover to sleep! Love this one.
