Escaping The Darkness

June 29, 2010 at 2:32 PM (Poetry)

I see a light

pass by my window

take me away

into the darkness

after-life of torture.

I need to escape

praying to every God

that connot exist

take me away.

Love can’t save me

only the forgiving darkness

Death calls sweetly

the light filters through

my blind eyes

take me away.

    life of torture……..death calls sweetly…….it is strange how a life of suffering turns thoughts of death into something sweet, the need for escape, it seems true escape lies in the safe haven of friends and with words of revelation, Poetry is such a life saving way for some of us. There is so much more in what this does not say than in what it says, I can relate to the emotions in this, I hope you find what you need to walk it out. thanks, alan

    A light taking you to darkness?…that is a crazily creative thought. Nicely written.

    Oh yea…sometimes, darkness feels more inviting and appealing than light… although it usually is the other way around
    End the tunnel when you decide to, and it will end right there! It had better!
    Keep up the good work…
