Darkness
Darkness
By Dylan Williamson

Black as night
Dark in time
With no light
Can be sublime
To those who
Like the dark
Those who do
Like to hark
That dark is bad
Don’t know enough
To judge, which is sad
And though their ideals are tough
They don’t know what good there is
So all...Read More

650 twin
reach down beneath
	mustard yellow tank
to the stopcock there
	and opened the flow

to neutral shift
	open the clutch
lightly in leap up
	and kick down hard

blip the throttle
	till the engine settles
click into gear
	engage the clutch

open the throttle
	the engine roars
the bike leaps ahead
	and your smile spreads

Raven: a poem of morality
With wings as black as night, what death holds sway
By powers strong and ancient, death’s favored creature
Spirits burst to song at the Morrigan’s passing
With dark song filling the air, tulips wilt turning bare
As they pass through the morning air

Fall Behind
We changed the clocks, which threw me off
So I was up at 5;
Too dark to walk, I had to wait
For sunrise to arrive.

I read my book and checked my mail
Until the sky was light.
Two days before, that hour
Would have been...Read More

Premium Member Dead End
On a grave two birds alight;
Ravens both, black as night.
To a tell-tale heart no longer beating,
"Nevermore" they keep repeating.
The demons claim the body below;
For here lies Edgar Allen Poe.

Nothing has historic value for us to remember.
The sheds are old and rusted on our farm just out of town;
our house is not long new since the old one was burnt down.

Dark were my days
Dark were my months
Months of struggle

Alone is what I want to be
Alone is when I am free
Free to feel

Hectic Red
Hills stack up on miles passed
Rolling down the mountainside
To take a chance on asphalt limitations
Black as night with traffic moving backwards

Poppies line the road as color globes
Fragrant red heads steadfast on stems
Held together with green and leaves
Cars try hard to...Read More

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Original Version - 2
2.

Off into the distance, total darkness,
to the right where all was light
Divinity thy beast is coming
from his land of endless night.
The thunder and the lightning playing
terrors own sweet symphony.
Darkness, which is soul destroying,
brings the man of dark to thee.

And then...Read More

Complacent Ones
Controlled by obsessions no longer can we trust. 
Cradled by your own indulgences for the cancer eating rust. 
The waste of time, sifting is the sand. 
Ever eluding conscience plight, 
Don't be your own dealer with rigored hand.

Magic words you speak
Black as night,
Moon shining from up above.
Brighter than any star out there,
The feather you hold in your hand,
dusting it upon my throat.
Little do you know your trying magic upon me.
Casting your wicked spell to hypnotize me.
But you don't know,

What I Wear
Of course I’m fine, why do you ask?
Oh don’t mind this, it’s just my mask.
It hides the grief , it hides the strife.
I wear my mask to escape the knife.

Don’t forget this, my pain is real.
I’m not lying, this is...Read More

Processing
Conceal my face. The jagged lines
Cut away an inch- no more.
Uproot the grey and secrete a bed
Of black as night.

Contort my frame
And guard my gait
With bated breath
I sent for flowers
Signed in concealed hands
A name that will not exist

I was twenty...Read More

Drenched of hell’s insanities 



Sending chills this tortured spine, 
as aches precede the worded fiction
Sorted truth does rest sublime 
beneath the light of benediction
Broken dreams of compass flair, 
directions cast a blinded waning
Trusted roots abridge the square

The Blade They Bear
As the sun melts away and the shadows advance,
I sink into a chair; gaze at the dying light.

of sinking in swiftly to sleep so white-
