Art of Dark


It gives comfort of rest
It brings shadow of protection
It provides time of contemplation
Let the dark be the covering veil

It is fond of secret, it likes mystery
It humors power, it hides ignorance
It attracts the innocence, it allures the rebel
Let the dark be the company of silence

It could lead us astray
It could doom us to sorrow
It could stab us with fear
Let the dark be the great weakness

It eats us, it makes us weeping
It tests us, it demands us to choose
It binds us, it forces us to flee
Let the dark be the lamenting fall

It fuels lust, it sparks danger
It feeds angst, it rules in night
It fills the hole, it colors the unknown
Let the dark be a threatening storm

It is manipulative, it is untruthful
It is tainted, it is illegal
It is haunting, it is contagious
Let the dark be an echo call

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
