DARK POEMS


Dark poems are everywhere,
floating in the midnight air.
Listen, listen, you have no choice,
the evil words, the devils voice.

Where the world falls apart,
there lies a dark poem of the heart.
Dark poems tell the devils lies,
they make you hear the evil cries.

Hold onto your ravaged soul,
don’t let life take its toll.
Dark poems are everywhere,
read them, read them, if you dare.

    This writing was clear and meaningful for all those who read poetry. Though I was
    thinking that there may be some disagreenent about what a dark poem is.
    I recommend this piece regardless.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
