"The man who takes offense when offence is not intended is a fool
However the man who takes offence when it is intended is an even greater fool"
Ralph Waldo Emerson


His heart is dark, yet it is evil he fights.
In the shadow he hides, he strikes after sundown,
He's why all the monster's tremble at night.
When the jester steals the kings crown, out comes the dark knight.
The nightmares come alive and chaos wears the face of a clown.
His heart is dark, yet it is evil he fights.
Part human, part ghost. Supernatural at dark, human by light.
He is the unmovable object to block the unstoppable force in town.
He's why all the monster's tremble at night.
He is the demon to defend the good in the city of hell, the Dark Knight.
Split decisions rule Gotham. Flip a coin, heads you live, tails you drown,
His heart is dark, yet it is evil he fights.
The only love he knows is a disguise of control, the flickering lights.
Fear is the power over the mind of man, It's enough to make them have a breakdown,
He's why all the monster's tremble at night.
He is the demon to defend the good in the city of hell, the Dark Knight.
The nightmares come alive and chaos wears the face of a clown.
His heart is dark, yet it is evil he fights.
He's why all the monster's tremble at night.

Thanks I do that with most poems but this was a villiane which has a strict amount of sylables and lines I was on a tight leash as it was :)

I really like this one. My favorite lines were "Flip a coin, heads you live, tails you drown" and "The nightmares come alive and chaos wears the face of a clown." I enjoyed reading this poem and my only suggestion for future writing is, if you don't already, read it out loud after you write it and see if it flows well. It's easier to decide what words fit and what words don't if you hear how other people will read it in their head. As for this poem, I always enjoy reading something a little darker. Great job on this one :)
