Here Again


Here Again

Sometimes I find myself slipping away.

Met by nothing but solid darkness,

instead of peaceful light.

I though that they were gone and this was over,

but I guess I was wrong.

My friend is back again.


With a vengence, it all comes back again.

The pain, the fear is back, I thought it went away.

I'd say i'm finally free, but I couldn't be more wrong.

Again I see the darkness,

it covers the moon over.

Will it ever give way to light?


Once, I found a place of light.

I want to find it again,

I want to start over.

I want to fly away...

high over the darkness,

so this life doesn't feel so wrong.


I guess I read the stars all wrong

and followed the wrong light.

Because deep inside this darkness

I can see my friend again.

Maybe I could just run away

so this pain might be over.


I've read this story, over and over,

but I must have read something wrong.

In the story I was supposed to fly away

and find the brightest light.

I was supposed to keep it in my pocket again,

so I would never, ever, find this darkness.


Here again I stand in this darkness,

replaying the memories over and over

so I can see what's real again.

But I guess my dreams were all wrong.

For me there is no light,

From it, my friend, you are dragging me away.


My friend is pulling me away, my friend is the darkness.

Here there is no light, there is no starting over.

My friend was always wrong, the devil led me here again.♥

"Once, I found a place of light. I want to find it again, I want to start over. I want to fly away... high over the darkness, so this life doesn't feel so wrong"—this is a deep want for the connection of light, peace, and harmony. One suggestion: I would like to see you writing within the metaphorical realm of poetry, using metaphors to create indelible imagery.



thank you for the suggestion, i'll keep it in mind. and thank you for reading.

I agree most of us have found ourselves in darkness. Keep writing, you will be a light in the midst of someone else darkness. Your words are inspiring and I think will help others.

I believe we all get moments of darkness. Its very hard at times to see the light when we are feeling low but there's always somewhere or someone who can help us get out. As we help others we just got to find the strength to seek deep inside n find ourselves. Question ourselves... What makes us happy? What we truly want? What are our dreams n how can we get there? Find something to keep us hanging on. Like this write although its a bit scary, I can relate to it in certain moments in my life. I believe it can help others realize they are not the only ones in darkness. Hugs



Thank you, you're right. I don't care if I'm good at writing but I write so I can help people. Writing has helped me, I hope I can help others. The darkness is only as dark as the darkest star. -sk8
