Life can really tarnish a person's self-perception and world view..it is so difficult to remain pure in heart and spirit..very profound and insightful poem that is nicely written..congratulations on being Member of The Day..a ten..
How depressing and wonderfully horrific. Good name that will draw the readers in. I wish it described more of what happenned to you after the darkness consumed you. Like the idea that the author enjoys the process of the consuming darkness. We must see to understand darkness. Understanding the darkness will allow us to choose if we want it...because if you want light, you have the power to choose light. Thought inspiring idea but the poem needs a bit of works.
Darkness can consume us at any age. It is sad when it affects youth. This is the age to learn to fight darkness and not to loose hope. Learn to fight and you will not be consumed by it even when you age.
Sad lines. Hope that you will distinguish soon that the Light is still there. Look closer and you will see it in the innocent laughter of the children, in the morning dew resting peacefully on the rose petals...
Light never fails to disappoint, never goes away. Light is life! ! Think positive my fellow poet!
