Alone In The Darkness

Alone in the darkness, can't you see?
There's nothing left inside of me

I shout and I scream, there's nothing here
Cause the darkness is all, that's what I fear

The shouts echo and rebound all around
There's nothing here, naught to be found

Through the window life is out there
Here I sit lost, alone and nowhere

Give me but a taste of that life
Without the darkness full of strife

Feel the hatred, the sorrow and pain
Taste the tears that pour down like rain

While all the world passes me by
I sit here alone, my eye's aren't dry

The loneliness is worse it comes from within
There is life all around, if I could only get in

Walls of my making, they're walls of thick steel
Walling me off so I don't have to feel

But they work two ways those walls of mine
Of life and laughter they give no sign

Only darkness and death await me here
But don't you worry, shed not a tear

For I built these walls a long time ago
And of my despair I'll try not to show

Alone in the darkness, can't you see?
This loneliness is all caused by me

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
