~*~ It so cold outside, Its raining hard The clouds are dark and grim But no more grim than the darkness Of the pain I feel within.. The darkness it engulfs me It wraps around my soul I can only wish for numbness For this pain I cant control Shall I write until my thumb bleeds My hand bruised , My fingers seized Ill carve words unto the page until it sets Slipping back into the darkness Yearning for a sleep with no regrets Locked in silent madness Infesting my mind with drowning memories Hoping that prose will let me find my sleep Trying to find a dream thats mine to keep This darkness will continue without a fight For theres no reason for hope without the light.. ~*~

    Darkness can teach us why we should fight, for survival,for light, for love! Much of my strength & wisdom has been born from that terrible teacher, Pain - I respect your style, and your candor - J.A.B. %
