The crimson light sheds its molten layer of earth
but what comes of the mark of the dead?
Only from darkness can we truly know birth.

Blinded will the falling star search for mirth.
For now the sun, its goal, disappears soon as it sets.
The crimson light sheds its molten layer of earth.

A lost soul scours the universe in its girth
Its will weakened by neighboring regrets
Only from darkness can we truly know birth.

A concept lost at birth and found at death comes forth:
The last beat of every heart is multiplied in worth:
The crimson light sheds its molten layer of earth.

Life finds treasure as it finds its final dearth
Death is human kind’s unlisted goal:
The crimson light sheds its molten layer of earth
Only from darkness can we truly know birth.

Your poetry is beautiful. It conveys a meaning that for most is hard to understand , but is heartwarming in a way :) Your words flow so well , and it's an elegant poem to say the least. Fantastic work! *****

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

This is interesting in a good way. In my poetry, I've never done the whole repeating lines thing. In this, are you saying that a person can only truly relax in darkness where htey are not seen? that's what i got from it but i don't quite understand. Keep writing!
