A Dark Side - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

You asked
if I had
a dark side.

Most of my life
has been lived
on the dark side.


But I always
believed in the power
and cosmic beauty
of solar energy
radiant vibrant stellar
life giving light.


You asked
if I had
a dark side.

Most of my life
has been lived
on the dark side.


Yet my heart and soul were
no part of the madness
the blackness the void
except as reluctant captive
resisting the entombing life
depleting molasses dark side.

    Another great write, I have been on the dark side numerous times both in life and writing. The key is can you climb out and balance it with a good side. Love your choice of words and it just flows.10+ (Report) Reply

    Most of us have both a dark and a light side. But like God is light and Satan is darkness we must always take the side of God and light. A very good poem, I really enjoyed. Lynn (Report) Reply

    A dark side..a sense of being there to long, wanting to break the mould into light. A thought provoking poem! ; D (Report) Reply
