Into The Realm

Damn, the night can be so cruel sometimes ...
The darkness overtakes my thoughts, my mind.
I feel like I'm drowning in a deep sea of sadness,
Slipping into the realm of insanity and madness.
~~~
The Dark has a funny way of keeping me ...
Wrapped up in it's crazed world of fantasy.
Somehow .. I find comfort within it's dark lair,
Keeps me safe from reality's den of despair
~~~
Into this realm that I dare to venture ...
I dance with the demons of dementia.
Dangling by what's left of sanity's thread,
Fragments of reality escaping my head.
~~~
Pulling me in deeper with it's evil grip ...
As the Black Knight emerges -The White Knight slips.
Slips into Hell and allows the beast to rise,
Replaces the light with the dark in my eyes.
~~~
The beast has risen in me once again ...
There's no way of knowing when this will end.
He rises when I'm hurt, confused or confined,
Damn, the night can be so cruel sometimes. 
~~~

The night can be cruel at times...that is correct...but for people like us....well....the night also holds solace for us and wraps us in safety holding the hurt at bay while battling what ails us....You are a true KNIGHT...and nothing can keep a Knight down for long....stay safe my friend....Cher

Thanks again Cher! :) The night is my sanctuary and sometimes my prison .. But, mostly it's my source of release. Thanks again my friend for your wonderful comments. I appreciate it! :) Ken

the night can bother me, as when I am attacked by a small object in the rug. still, I find comfort in my dark cave, and then when I am sufficiently lonely, the beast in me is quiet and I come out to share with humans... I am glad to see you writing..

Thnaks Spring! :) I appreciate your read and comments my friend. I like your analogy of the dark and the comfort it provides. It is so true, but as many also state we shouldn't dwell top long in it .. because it can take over and consume. Thanks again! Much appreciated! :) Ken

Thanks again T!! :) I appreciate your insightful comments as usual my friend. I know it will get better - because it can't really get much worse - so with my head held high I will push forward and dust off my damaged armor. It will once again shine .. that I promise. Thanks again! :) Ken

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
