Darkness


Darkness scares me
but it's not the darkness that scares me
it's the demos and creatures that crawl in darkness that scares me.

I can hear them call out my name
in small quite, scary whispers,
whispers that reach out to my core and bring out my greatest fear
fear that i'll one day get stuck in this darkness.

I'm scared of the darkness that only surrounds me
when everyone else is surrounded by nothing but light
no one sees the darkness besides myself
no one sees the scars and wounds caused by the demons and creatures of the darkness.
no one hears my screams as i cry for help
no one but the but the darkness it's self.

The demons and creatures of the darkness are getting closer.
they want to tear me apart
i cry for help
i cry for a helping hand
i cry and scream for someone to hear me
but no one seem to hear me cry in agony for help
no one sees my scares
no one sees my tears of blood that are passed due
and no one sees the fear written all over my face, as the demons and creatures of the darkness start to take over and cover me with nothing but darkness.

It's pitch black and i can't be saved
Because it's too late
for darkness with its demons and creatures have finally taken over.
leaving me broken and damaged.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have gone through a lot as a child but no one got to see behind my smile to see the pain that i was in. That pain left me scary and damaged but people still don't see it.
All i want is to be fixed and set free from this darkness that has taken over.

This poem is dedicated to the girl that i once was, before the darkness took over.

    This sounds like the confession of a suicide bomber to me. Hopefully you are not planning on taking anyone with you when you go! (Report) Reply
