Dark Side

   Dark side

How can I see?
When I am blind
I will not remove my blindfold 
It is dark in my mind
Scary deep, like a hole
A corner nobody knows
Blinded by death
Sights that block my sanity
Insane like the color black
Store my freedom in a box
Dungeons down and dim
Fights I will not win
Demons lost inside
Angels lurk more the out side
Damage the power within
Damage the world without
God does he exist?
Devil are you in doubt?
Enter my innocence 
Exit my violence 
Darken by the hate
Feelings no one can relate
Understand nothing
Silent in the naked eye
Take it all away
Give it all away
My pride I have none
Glory does not exist
All alone, lost my way
Final but not yet

     I am found, now I see!
 You are here with me in the 
            Dark Side.

    Very intense, but I gotta say I love the 3rd line because in my mind it's like your choosing not to see, your choosing the darkness and I just think that's really cool. Love Destiny

    Intense write Baby Boy and lots of depth too... enjoyed reading your creative write.. thankxxx for checking out my poetry and the Haiku and Senryu forms are similar... and easy to write... Haiku is a short form about Nature...Senryu is about everything else ..the syllable count is 5/7/5 meaning 5 syllables first line, seven syllables second line and five syllable third line .. easy yes? so give it a try and let me know OK? luv.. "Sweetheart"

    That's Hi! new poet LOL

    I new poet...just a heads UP! If you aren't in to nature don't read haiku...because that is ALL haiku is about nature. Your verse above reminds me of many things 1st black is the presense of all color.....did you know that? If you had the prime colors red blue & yellow & mix them you get black 2nd take a peek at the lyrics to amazing grace....the writer had many many of your problems/insights/challenges..anad lastly welcome to the soup Light & Love

    There lies within every man two dogs ...The one that he feeds the most wins...Intersting thoughts that you have penned..Sara
