Forever Dark


It was as dark as night
I had woken up at midnight
It was strange night
Chirp chirp chirp, the birds are chirping at night

What if it wasn't night? I thought
No what if it was morning and I couldn't tell
I slept again thinking I would just wake up in the morning
I woke up but it was still pitch black. I was blind

What will I do?
I had always wanted to be an artist
I had always wanted to drive a car
What am I going to do, my future is screwed up

I dream about being able to see my mother who died when I was born
Then I wake up feeling as bad as I have ever been
What will I do?
Now I'm just sitting here telling someone whom I can't see what to write

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
