Darkest Urge

April 7, 2008
By Zoe Brumley, Evansville, WI

Like a cold, black night
It reveals no light
A vast endless cave
It knows no limit
No boundary to the
Wrath and guilt it feeds
Like a starved animal
It consumes everything within
The feeling is like biting into
Something sweet with a sour aftertaste
It is a smile
So forgiving and generous
That becomes a sneer
The first taste is irresistible
But with a crushing despair
When you act with it
You feel sick and alone
And yet so powerful
You loathe it, despair it, yearn for it
It is your most loyal companion
And your worst enemy
It becomes you
