Love and darkness


I am facing love and darkness in sin

My heart rages loudly for atonement,

But the aching agony goes long and deep within,

They fly swift to wounded region.



I am walking blind in a tunnel of dark,

What will ignite new hope in dreams where it began?

My awaken soul tries to leap into mythical spark,

Burning desire with every passion imagine.



Fear let go in marveled wander and I travel far

Staying near the walk of faith, but doing what I hate,

The burning love of anger grows even stronger,

This flame in the dark is burning the brightest.



Electric fire, passion desire glowing in the night,

Burning flame human pain reveals another dark realm

Light consumes darkness and makes the day look bright

There is a love binding me to earth and it shines in heaven.



As angelic lamplights Passover on the vacant street,

Jostling the flames of freedom forcing our conscience,

To explore time and consume the darkness we meet,

This love for earth is a reality to illuminate doubtful science.



Love and darkness, dwells within our heart

In shady light, seasons embrace both phenomenons

That exists within the crater of twilight mist,

And can disappear just as quickly as they came.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
