"Those who deny the darkness in their hearts, are the ones who fall deeper into it."


Death stalks the day
as life haunts the night
You must choose a way
to stand in the fight

There is no serenity
it must be the lies
Corrupt with vanity
and all good dies

You see a caged beast
it has come to be its turn
Unleash it to begin the feast
and watch the world crash and burn

Little one don't be scared
don't cringe and hide
No one would've cared
if you had suffered and died

It is too late
for you to live
It was your fate
to have nothing to give

There's no happily ever after
nor blissful things
Just a trickster's laughter
and broken wings.

I'm glad I could help you in some way TheComet. I appreciate your feedback. Hopefully one day we can all walk out of the shadows and feel the light touch our skin. Until then though, keep staying strong and fight for what you love.

So true! I so admire you for being so honest. The fact that you see only the dark side isn't that bad cuz as you said "Those who deny the evil in their hearts fall deeper into it" and you're right. You gotta face your flaws, try to get them so you can finaly may be get over them. Your poems really help me make things clearer in some way! Thank you so much.

They do. Thank you, for sharing those phrases. And thank you.

I'm going to tell you 2 phrases I heard that I hold close to my heart. 1: Every light casts a shadow. 2: Those who deny the evil in their hearts fall deeper into it. I hope those help you see a lil' bit into my world. Also, don't forget how amazingly talented you are.

If this is how you've felt, I can say I've partly felt this way. Really emotional, like I've said before in your other great work. Your poem is really great, I love the how you wove the words into this, your creation. You created pictures with your words. I'm not trying to be mean, but are all your poems looking on the dark side? You'll always see the dark side, if you keep seeing the dark side. Though, it is hard to not look at the dark side, since we live in a dark world. I just wanted to say. Thanks for sharing this. You do have a great talent, know that.
