Why Darkness

why would good claim darkness
when darkness is a freak
why name good darkness
when good is so neat

darkness is doubt
and never being sure
while good is trusted
and sure to find a cure

is there darkness
in those that bare the name
what kind of darkness 
is their claim to fame

is darkness an evil
secretly desired
the ruler of kingdoms
and dark empires

does darkness have powers
as strong as love
does darkness spend hours
pretending and making up

does darkness have a pen
that weaves evil spells
or darkness have words
that within hearts dwells

into the darkness 
I bring my light
this poet called darkness
is actually quite bright

from the dawn 
into the middle of the night
I could read her
because her poetry is nice

    About Poetess Darkly I assume. Good entry. To ask these questions bears the plight. Eternity is day and night. The shadows that conceal the heart. Are what makes poetry an art.
