Here In The Dark...What Do You Think?


Recommended Posts

Writing out of boredom again...any good?

Here in the Dark

While frightened dogs howl in the night,

And distant planes take midnight flight.

I sit alone here in the dark

Once raging flame, now faded spark.

The brilliant light I once did know

Of purest white, like driven snow.

No longer white now fades to black

I fear it won't be coming back.

When morning dawns will I find

The darkness remains within my mind?

From the tree of life, I once did eat

That precious fruit pure and sweet.

Then like others I was ashamed

Denied the faith I once had claimed.

On forbidden paths, I found my feet

The spirit willing, the flesh so weak.

In foolish ways my time was spent

I vowed that soon, I would repent.

When from the path I did stray,

In mist of darkness I lost my way.

When in the river I began to drown

As swifter currents pulled me down.

At river's edge I now reside,

A victim of my foolish pride.

The choice was made, the choice was mine

To see the light or to be blind.

So thus I dwell here in the dark

Once raging flame, now faded spark.
