Darkness, my old friend

picture source:

I no longer see the sunshine,
I am drifting towards the stormy sea,
swallow me in your outburst,
let me sink into this ocean of black,
let it eat me up from the inside and out,
tie me up with your sharpest bonds
so that I can bleed, bleed, bleed....
until I am but an empty shell.
Then feed my soul to the hovering demons
that I may emerge from this hell
to walk the earth and live my last days
indulging in every darkness I have ever imagined.


  1. to poignant and stirring but very touching!

  2. I'm in two minds whether I would want to meet you in the dark . . . . lol . . crumbs this is powerful stuff . . .:)

  3. It never ceases to amaze me how much depth is in your poetry. This one is no different :)

  4. Yep. I too have entered that space. fortunately there is only so much blood left.
