As Darkness Calls . . .


Poem Commentary

It's Calling Me .... So Forever I Must Follow ~

As Darkness Calls . . .

I am drawn to it ... 
I'm not really sure why.
There's something about it,
It makes me feel alive.
It's like it's calling ...
Forcing me to submit.
A deep-rooted desire,
A longing that won't quit.
I am drawn to it ...
Even the fear excites.
Deadening my senses,
As darkness blinds my sight.
It's like it's calling ...
To take complete control.
Slowly invading my mind,
Quickly possessing my soul.
I am drawn to it ...
There is nothing I can do.
My curiosity peaked,
Causes me to venture thru.
It's like it's calling ...
"Come here now ~ take my hand."
It's futile to resist it,
I must obey it's command
I am drawn to it ...
There's nothing to stop my fall.
Into its realm of madness,
Surrounded by padded walls.
It's like it's calling ...
Screaming thru echoing halls.
I find myself following,
It's cries ~ as darkness calls.

Way cool man! most certainly must obey the darkness's command. In this piece, darkness may have been calling but I have a feeling that you were inviting it in, and you know that's the right way to do it. To ask for it's attention before it captures yours. Great write Ken.



Thanks Stash! You have a keen insight don't ya? :) The darkness does call ... but I do tend to leave the door open. :) Thanks again my friend in darkness! Ken

and the darkness calls.. you do very interesting underworld thoughts... aren't we All drawn to something on the "no" list? once again... good rhyme, easy form...



Thanks Spring! :) Yes, I believe we All have a little dark in us .. whether it's temptation or some other deadly sin. We just need to know when not to listen to it. .... Thanks again! :) Ken

Knight you are really a master in this kind of are a great mind reader...I know people who are like this,,,madness is kind of a very strong gravity,,,my classmate killed himself because of its powerful voice....great poem knight...^_^ v



Thanks Stellar - I think that we all have this voice .. but one must know when to Not Follow. I think poetry is a great release for this voice and if we all let it emote this way, we wouldn't succumb to it's calling. I feel so sorry for your classmate and your loss. Thanks again Pal! :) Ken

The darkness is a tie that binds, Me to U and forever finds, Us wherever we tread, But joined together there's nothing to dread~ ☯ ❤ U xoxoxoxo =)

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
