Darkness


All these thoughts are private,
Not to the world will I display,
Sad ramblings of a broken mind
Left searching for a way.
 
Love's kindness did I throw aside,
whilst delving in the dark.
Now  for'er myself I'll chide,
The lost secret of your heart.
 
'Twas in the ignorance of youth
My confidence was lost;
And with it faded all the truth
Of beauty, warmth and lust.
 
Now I sit here all alone,
Missing that glorious throne
Of softness, strength, love unbound
In which fulfilment's found.
