The Art of Darkness

When you offer up your heart and soul and pour yourself into a relationship only to have it spat back into your face and your heart ripped out and trampled under foot right before your own eyes and when you attempt any kind of damage limitation to be laughed at almost hysterically leaving you to hide in a dark corner with the tears streaming down your face feeling every raw nerve being scraped again and again and yet you go on hoping for better optimistically hoping for sunrise when in reality there is only the night and darkness the darkness of her nasty mouth and wicked laugh in it all there is one glimmer of light, the children you made are beautiful and bright and young as they are they can see the truth as you retreat further you feel it stir deep inside it fights back your spirit, that wonderful human thing it’ still there unbroken, just a little bent so you escape into your art and pour into it your heart but art has a dark side too and it can bite you opening up the wounds making you raw once again facing the darkness from within your light and so yet again you retreat into the night ...............deeper and DEEPER into Darkness
