dusk arising

in the dark



it was a dream
i was walking in the dark
lost, searching
you came to me
through the darkness
took my hand
walked out of my darkness

    Super write, there is somebody out there for us all to walk them into the light.

      Thanks G ... it was spooky in there.

      So Lovely!
      Great writing and nice picture.
      I can say that I have learned that in a partnership (romantic or friendly) having someone to guide us and or to guide is imperative for our evolution.

      • dusk arising

        Probably a bit of help and guidance both ways is helpful. Thanks for reading and your comments, always appreciated.

        A fine write dusk. Was it me? Did I come along with a torch?
        Can't see much point in two people walking together in the dark. Dunno where they'll end up. Can't see a thing!
        Yet there can be spiritual meaning in 'going through the darkness together'.

        • dusk arising

          Yes O, it was definitely a spiritual darkness.

          I used to have a recurring dream that I was in an endless dark tunnel my only company were the rats. None ever came. But the dream stopped.

          I think it helped me see that only I could find a way out.

          Your poem reminded me of those dreams.

          It is a hopeful poem. Reaching out.

          • dusk arising

            I was probably one of those rats. Thank you for taking time to read and comment.

            • sylviasearcher

              Well the rats did not mean me any harm...

            • LAWLESS

              Great short love poem!

              Definitely describes what I've experienced.

              • dusk arising

                I think many of us do find ourselves in dark places every so often. My piece describes a wonderful event for which i'm still waiting.... so if you know any ladies with a torch (flashlight as they call them stateside).
                Thanks m8.

                Dusk you moved much in few words. Loved it!

                • dusk arising

                  Yes short pieces can be so punchy cant they. This piece wrote its self quite suddenly. I struggled with the penultimate line .... the temptation was to make it longer 'and we walked' etc.
                  Pleased you liked it, thanks for commenting.

                  • Heartwriter

                    Your welcome. I have a difficult time writing short ones.

                    The dark, not a nice place to find oneself - but it so often happens to so many. Would that they all find the hand you describe. A reminder I think. Joe

                    • dusk arising

                      Thanks for reading and commenting. I'm still waiting for that hand....

                    • Poetic Dan

                      Got a friend who I truly did this with, thanks for sharing buddy.

                      • dusk arising

                        Pleases me that u can relate to this, i'm still waiting.

                        • Poetic Dan

                          Not many can go the depths of our true inner darkness and she came out of nowhere. I was shocked as it's not even the one I'm sharing everything (partner) with, it was her friend but it truly made me question 'love' as it was my ladys best friend.

                          I hope this starts to manifest that hand, as I was reminded today of one of my first posts in 2015 when I was at my cliff edge and alone.
                          Now I connect with so many great soul that the darkness has become but a haze.

                          I believe this for anyone who writes this way

                          Much love and respect

                        • Santita

                          It's like that sometimes, isn't it? The right person can lead us out of the darkness, if we allow them. I hope this is a sign of your happiness, my friend. xx

                          dont'cha just love dreams like that.. sometimes they are just so good... we have a little cracker here sir..... N

                          In the moment, being enveloped in darkness, a day will come, when I'll be guided by or at least see the light at the end of the tunnel...

                          Thnx for this guiding write.
