Darkness Poem by Cierrah Smiles


Fire,
Smoke,
Buildings crumbling,
Day has gone and left us here to burn,
Night is upon us,
Creatures,
Demons rule the nights and now our bones,
Last one left,
Here to burn,
Bridges fall,
Light from fire fills the dark,
I walk whats left of the streets,
I walk bare foot,
Pain fills my body and organ by organ I feel burn inside me,
So this is what it feels and looks like,
Pain and suffering,
Lose and grief,
Cries fill the air,
And ash my lunges,
I walk till I reach light,
And collapse and take one last breath,
I reached it at least light and hope,
Just hope it stays

    you have a unique style...a bit cryptic but quite readable and likable....
    there is mayhem and disquiet in yer lines....a deeply disturbing feeling of the direction mankind is headed....
    this poem could be an apt epitaph near the dome in Nagasaki....


    nice write

    Nice poem i really loved it nice imagined nice metaphores but a thing i don't understand well in your poem you're talking about disaster and darkness while you say Light from fire fills the dark, this it's kind of contradicts with the theme.
    Good work in your poem wrote nicely chosen vocabulary and very meaningful goood luck with your future poems.
