DEEP DARK SOUL POET

Rookie - 35 Points (09/1965 / Australia)

Dark voices


Darkness canvasses my mind like a carpet of black
Blanking out my minds eye, sight I suddenly lack
The ghosts of my past crawl from the depths to haunt
Pain I had unfelt for so long again begin to taunt

Naked before myself and all protection unveiled
I thought I had dealt with them and new life prevailed
Like a splintered bough I fall away and crash apart
Falling into that deep dark hole where it all did start

The hell within starts to burn my very soul to ashes
The dark feelings to all my hopes and dreams it smashes
Again I’m resigning myself to my inward fate
And Ill go and hide away with my self hate

All alone by myself, nothing to do nowhere to go
Just destined to the dark corners of my life I know
I’m happy there being unhappy, an oxymoron if you will
And no-one to get hurt there, no blood will spill

In my darkened room shadowed with the darkest shades of black
No one there to hear these whispering fears or see my bitter tears.
Voices that only I can hear flood my mind with all my darkest fears.
The cries of the dark never cease, these scary voices won't leave me in peace.
