Hope Diamond


Filled With Darkness


I can't see
Tears sting my eyes
Branches lacerate my face
Thousands of thoughts run through my mind
My legs throb with discomfort
The darkness engulfs any shred of light
I don’t know where I am going
My heart is beating out of my chest
I can hear him gaining
His footsteps are getting louder
My foot finds the root
Suddenly I hear a scream
I realize it came from me
My mind goes blank
I can feel my heart beat
My body goes numb
I can now feel nothing
My hands shoot out
The ground gets closer
Pain explodes up my arms
Terror grips my every cell
My heart stops
I force my eyes open
My throat releases a blood curdling scream
I see orange everywhere
I see piercing black eyes
They are filled with hate
They are filled with anger
They are filled with violence
They are filled with darkness
They rip into my very soul
I close my eyes

    A very strong first poem here, well written. I happened to be reading this with a friend and he said that he could actually feel the fear in it. May it be the first of many poems for you (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
