in a darkened room

i see nothing but grey
and dust floating through
a darkened room


with the drapes pulled tight
a single ray of light
shown into a darkend room


stale air thick and grim
sombre thoughts swim
through a darkened room


closed off and handicaped
crippled and attacked
by the mood in a darkened room


self contained... myself is safe
so i remain
consumed by this darkened room

I enjoy darkness because it allows me to see, if that makes sense to you then we understand one another. I like how you approach this subject, Dano. Thanks for being a poet.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
