    Swallowed By Darkness

    Darkness calls.


    Dare I listen?


    Love has fled from me.




    My hands shake.


    The tears glisten.


    There’s tremors in my knees.




    The light fades.


    Gloom threatens.


    The shadows are closing in.




    The fear chokes.


    My heart beats faster.


    Panic is setting in.




    The light is gone.


    The darkness has won.


    There is nothing in this place.




    I long for the shine,


    That loving glow,


    Of the light upon your face.

    A powerfully dark write, half burning with fear, half with love, coming together in light as if a vampire leaving before sunrise. Lovely!

    You have brought to light, a moment of suffering and dread that exists in the bowels of each of our hearts.... Beautifully echoed... God Bless you and remember, darkness cannot stand in the light! Light.... always overcomes darkness!

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
