Dark Night


Everyone is doing great,
Everyone, but me is happy,
Why is it that only I seem to hate?

The sky is so cheerful,
The sun is so bright,
Why is it so dark only at night?

Children dance and sing,
Women sit in the park,
Together laughing.

I see so many smiles,
I see the light in everyone else's eyes,
Though, I'm drowning in my own lies.

I say I'm fine,
Whenever you ask,
I smile, yet, am hateful in my mind,
In my own self pity I bask.

I act so very fake,
I am so very dark,
I live in the confusion only I make,
I envy the happiness in that park.

With myself I fight,
Though, each and everyday,
I become darker,
Just like that dark, dark night.

    People generally don't like the darker things I write either - they make the mistake of thinking that that art must always be imitating life. I say to hell with what people want you to write, unless of course you want to produce a whole bunch of hollow poems that your heart was never in. Write what feels right, and let people take it how they want to. I like your poems because they have an honesty about them - there's plenty of greeting cards out there for me to read if I decide that I prefer contrived sentiment! (Report) Reply

    Abbey, I have just read all your poems and hope that you will talk to someone who will give you some help. Your biography said you want to write poems that will 'inspire.' You must know that these dark poems do not inspire. I hope you can move past whatever is keeping you so low and then write poems of hope.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
