Living in the Dark


Living in the Dark

Living in The Dark

The darkness is a spooky place where nightmares seem to dwell
Causing an uneasy feeling that sends us chills like visions of hell
Where no comfort can be found and all our feelings of safety are lost
We fear this darkness that clouds our eyes and painfully endure the cost

Horror hides its face in the scenery to drown out the light and devastate
Shadows are not present since there is no light to move or simply create
But a loneliness so deep it swallows us whole before we can even decide
Where our escape route lies and find a safe place where we can go to hide

Have we painted over the sacred pictures to disguise a truth we once knew?
Is our structured belief system collapsing due to a weakness you held onto?
Can any hope be found to save the broken man you have hidden deep inside?
Will you give up fighting too see the daylight again or push to see faith ride?

What will it take to survive inside this realm of evil that has grasped my soul?
Have I allowed this darkness to enter and kill me so it can take full control?
We have such little time before we become delusional to this state of being
This is not the life I dreamed of living but a torn world that I hate to be seeing

Are we trapped inside this prison cell that I have built and where I came to stay?
Will I ever see the beauty of light shine across my face again as I begin to pray?
With only the words “please help me Lord” coming out of my mouth so shaken
I forgot to acknowledge God during this time of darkness because I had quit taking

A chance that someone could be there to help me when I could not find my way
I didn’t think anybody was listening as the darkness continued to cause me to stray
Pulling my eyes away from the sacred and my heart further from all that is good
If dying felt like having nothing left then that is what it took before I even could

Pull my head up and clear my conscience so I could understand what was wrong
The direction I was heading and the damage that was done that didn’t take long
Just a peek into the dark can be a wound awaiting for your pleasured eyes
Don’t follow after what the world wants and let this darkness come as a surprise

Wake up and see there is a blinding light that shines with the intensity of the sun
It will bring you to your senses and help you realize you are standing before the One
The King who reigns supreme over this universe that he crafted with His hands
And only Christ has the power to save you because He loves you and understands

Brett Fletcher

Worthless commented on Living in the Dark


you need to edit this and change the font so people can read it. i have excellent eye sight but the screen is filthy and i cant seem to read all of i. that might be a reason no one has commented. looking forward to reading it soon. BTW, i see you to have been off here for awhile.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
