And Here Comes Dark - Poem by Yasmin Rubayo

It's dark outside
But I see the light
Then darkness
I see the light again
And here comes dark

It's dark outside
I am lonely and sad
But I see the light
You ask my name
Then darkness
You take my hand
I see the light again
We fall in love
And here comes dark

It's dark outside
I can't find you
But I see the light
You were right there
Then darkness
I have my doubts
I see the light again
You say I'm wrong
And here comes dark

It's dark outside
I reach for you
But I see the light
You don't reach for me
Then darkness
I feel alone
I see the light again
I read your face
And here comes dark

It's dark outside
I want to leave
But I see the light
You're come to me
Then darkness
I feel your grip
I see the light
You're hurting me
And here comes dark

It's dark outside
I try to scream
But I see the light
You have my throat
Then darkness
I can not breath
I see the light
For the last time
And here comes dark

    A mind gripping poem detailing the light and the darkness.
    No matter how dark it is the light can cut through it. The same
    with our life we must continue to look toward the light that will
    see us through the difficult times. Thought provoking. (Report) Reply

    My band was wondering if we could have permission to use your poem as lyrics for a song.

    because of your youth you are trying to explain the darkness in your relationships
    you want eternal light without fear, life is not like that you must except the pain with the happiness, as far as the poem it is good in it's depth and you show promise

    Warm regards AJS (Report) Reply
