Dark Place

Small and confined
she stays a prisoner to her dark place
Try as she may
she always ends up back at her dark place
She looks for relief
but they always take her back to her dark place
She wonders sometimes
is she only her dark place
Don't get her wrong
she loves it when he's in her dark place
It's true she's lonely sometimes
looks to fill a void in her dark place
She still questions sometimes
can love exist in her dark place
Or is she destined to be nothing more
than her dark place

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
