My Dark Abode

Darkness decends the heart
reach out grabs the emptyness
is this a test of lifes cruelness

In the darkness one cannot see
a hand reaches only dust it seems
a room just walls no exits
the darkness that creeps in

stealing the life of a soul
wings of spirit no longer soar
close in these walls no more
tear at them forever more

no light can penetrate this heart
surronded by the dark
that creep in inspite
no hands can see in this place
of dark without light

I am here echos off those walls
oh this darkness so bold
keeps its strong hold
run to that wall that cold

fists do pound make no hole
only darkness can exists
in this room no end to this
open up you dark abode

let me spirit out not darkness hold
the light it must have
or too dust it will go
fists pound to the echoing sound
of my dark abode

Asha... Yes, I know what you mean. But remember, when you are in that dark space.... Don't run toward the light! It's likely to be one of two things 1) The light a life's end that we all seek to avoid for as long as possible, or 2) The headlight of the proverbial oncoming freight train! hehe You get a 10 from me...

I really don't know if my words will ever find silence on this subject as it is very near and deat to my heart's keep but I will end here for now. I hope I have in some small way given light to thuis poem as it is filled with so much meaning and emotion I can not begin to describe the heartfelt emotions that come to mind. bravo!!! This is a place i an also relate to, a place i know all to well, a place I hav lived in for more years than i would like to imagine, if you get time read my poem called "the abyss". Perhaps I see, perhaps I am as blind as a bat in the darkness... Purity of the soul, journey well!!! Angel aka the poem buster

thank you dear friend for all of those words I know came straight from your heart, and yes it has helped me to look for that light and use the love we shared to find that light and happiness again. I can't thank you enough for what you have done for me today, this is a day I shall keep in my heart forever. blessings dear and I will read yours for sure love asha

As painful as it is the trick to life is not to live int he past, not to run from it, but to let it become a part of you, both the good and the bad, learn from it and move on. To take the pain and make it apart of you is truley the way we grow, and the way out of the darkness of the night. This is what it means to truely journey, I hope and I pray you find such a journey! the olf saying goes "it is better to have loved and lost, than to have never haved loved at all", I find these words filled with wisdom as they are the truth of the light. Many people live thier whole life and never find such a rare love you have lost, but truthfully such a love is never lost, for as long as thier memory lies on in your heart and soul, than the light of the eternal candle shall never grow dim, and if you ever awaken in the dead of the night and find yourself lost in the darkness it is this eternal candle that shall always shine light and give you a path to follow back to the promise of the day... part 5

To have found such a darkness so deep no light can avail, the heart must have been once filled with the very light of love, for only when one flys in the clouds of heaven can one fall so deep. The love you heart has lost must have been one of great union, two souls as one, but truthfully this love that you yearn for and have lost, is your way back out of the darkness for once a love so rare has been found nothing can break it apart, not even death! For truthfully such a love that you shared is eternal, don't run and hide from your past, this is what created the darkness but rather let the love fill your heart and shine it light into your world, this will show you a path out of the dakness to be and into the light of the day and the promise of a new tomorrow... part 4

so true, for our love in life was one of true soulmates and that connection reaches beyond time and space even death, for he will always own the best of my heart and I will always sing his praises in the love we shared, which was like no other I have ever had, though it was way to brief, he died just before our first aniversary. but we loved a lifetimes worth in that time. thanks dear friend love asha

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
