The Darkness My Reality

>.< A night of dark desire and timeless agony A night of sorrow and everlasting fear Once pure eyes overnight turn evil My heart freezes as you near So close I feel your breath on my skin The pain and chaos you bring Sucking life from my world Hope from my soul I see you in the shadows Watching silently. The sky i see isn't blue anymore The grass isn't green My world now cloaked in a dark hue Down here in the dark No light to show me guidance No hope to give me ease It come's now, the darkness Suffocating the air Walls creeping closer Blinding screams ring through my head As mercy abandons every thought Fear seeping through my broken soul Inside cries of surreal pain claw my flesh Drowning in my own bitter tears Knowing I am running out of time Bringing with it the promise of eternal nightmares Never waking, forever dreaming, forever screaming.. >.<

    Gosh, Tracie, I hope this is not a reflection of what you were telling us at your blog that I just saw tonight. But I am sure it has something to do with the writing of this poem. This is a very good poem and I am happy to see you back here. Please stay this time!!! Things will get better. they somehow always do.

    Wow, that is a wondrously dark write my friend! I just love the incredible nature of the blind screams of the forever screaming in your poem! I can sense the dark scenery around you, the grey sky and the overcast look of the grass and the trees, the sidewalk and the buildings all dull and gloomy...I can visualize what you see! I feel what you are describing, cause I've been there before Tracie! I hope you are just writing about it and aren't living this now! This is a beautiful write! Great Work
