*   DARKNESS of the LIGHT   *

Those that fear the dark,
Have never seen what the light can do.
In this grave I will leave no mark.
Knowing the tunnel light, is the way God scr3ws with you.
I have no soul to sell, 
Someone jacked my free ticket to hell.
I lived all my life on the verge of a broken dream.
My will locked behind this iron cell.
Only he can hear me scream!
My own prisoner in this bottle shell.
To fear the dark is the devil's scheme.
Watch me as I remove my own shackles from my limbs.
Towards the light I will never redeem.
A full flavor laugh, 
For he that fears the darkness, and walks the light alone.

    You have true light in your soul. The blend at first shocked me and then I realized that the contrast was deliberate and quite brilliant!

    I have never been afraid of the dark, in fact, I live to walk in darkness! It is a shame that darkness has such a bad reputation. So many beautiful things exist in the dark...Beautiful poem, SKAT, I loved it!...Thank you so much for the nice comments! :)

    Seems like a prison of your own you are describing, SKAT! Sort of a hell of a place to me and you are not mentioning there being anyone there. I would prefer walking alone in the light then walking alone in the dark for at least I can see where I'm going. :) This is what your write made me think of. I am not sure if I interpreted it right though. It's a great write, thought provoking. Thanks for sharing. Caroline.
