"Living life is like writing in pen, once you've made a mistake you can't go back and erase it..."

In the Dark and Silent night of the World
Coated in Inky Darkness without Hope
Fear and Happiness are Forever Swirled
Memories so Strong I can Barely Cope

My Past comes Back to Destroy my Future
Undoing the Illusion of Safety
The Crimes Haunting my Mind without a Cure
Time has been Running Out for me Lately

Ready for whatever I Have to Face
Ready for this Nightmare called Life to End
My Tears Covered with a Veil of Black Lace
My path is Unchanging, I see No Bend

The Sun still Rises Banishing Shadows
Still Hitting my face like a Gentle Kiss

The author's comments:
The pressure in this world can seem too much at times and writing is one of the only ways I express the pain without causing harm to myself or those around me.

Ah, I simply loved it. I find that many people leave on the darkest note possible, making the story effective? Yes, but perhaps not the kind of reaction a reader wants. What makes this story different, what makes it truly a piece of artwork and something unique is the ending. Letting the story slide into a lighter tone, bring solace to the previous darkness truly makes this the emotional rollercoaster readers want. Not a solid black, or a solid white. But a mix, something more of a gray which people can't seem to create much of more now a days. Amazing poem. I loved it, my friend. -Orion
