My Dark Side



My dark side is winning out today The good times are on the run Almost all of us possess a dark side Don't say you don't have one The highs and lows we experience Are decreed from up above The two of them always go together Like the proverbial hand in glove Always a part of the creative mind But as dark as the dark side gets Really great highs make up for them So there's no need to fuss or fret Sure as the night follows the day The bright side will return once more To kick start the creative process And we'll churn 'em out by the score © Jack Ellison 2013

    My dragon has a dark side... "The Supreme Leader of the Universe' (ie. my brother) came to visit me the other day on his Harley Davidson. My dragon was so captivated by the Harley that he wanted to take a ride... The tires are now flat, the body bent(some) and the tire spokes are make really good dragon tooth picks. And I wonder why insurance companies don't like dragons?! To get near the bike he had to release the dogs of war protecting it... Such a little dragon... so many problems... LOL...

    Gotta go... Homeland Security is on my door step... And 'The Supreme Leader of the Universe' is looking a little pissed... I wonder if he'd like to meet my Dogasaurus... (Read Dragon Wlkie to explain... LOL)

    This is an amazing and delightful write my friend! I am filled with wonderment by your creativity with the darker and lighter sides of life, I believe you have experienced plenty of both, as I have in my life as well! But I have a lot more of the higher brighter side of life than the lower darker side! And I'm going to take a educated guess that you have had more of the higher brighter side of life too! Your poetry always shines of joy and merriment, so much so I can't imagine much darkness!
