Into the darkness


Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

I'm falling down the hole into the darkness of the night
I twist and turn my head but my eyes they have no sight
The darkness is complete and it swallows me up whole
It's tugging and it's ripping trying to separate me from my soul
I stumble in the darkness trying desperately to feel my way
My prison for the present but I know I cannot stay
To stay would bring about certain doom, my life will surely end
No, the light I need to look for this darkness is no friend
The light I no longer see it, it has disappeared over time
I let the darkness consume me now I'm in prison for my crime
The light I still remember it came in many forms
Sadly even those memories do little to keep me warm
The cold and darks invading, it seeps into every pore
It pushes out the light leaves me battered, bruised and torn
A face, I see it fleetingly with sadness in its eyes
Those eyes knew where I was headed that I had cast that dye
An ocean full of blackness with nothing else around
It's like being 6 foot under buried underneath the ground
So here I'll stay forever of that I have no doubt
My will it was not strong enough, my soul gives one last shout

    Jooles, welcome to the club! I think all poets have a 'wierd side' as you so aptly explain in your comment to the poem. A poem that really grabbed me right from the first line. Excellent writing!
