In A Land Of Darkness Am I Lost


In a land of black darkness am I lost
I want out of this land no matter the cost

I'm tired of tears burning down my face
Of the thoughts setting my heart to race

Thoughts of death, of peace at last
It's set in stone, the die is cast

The emptiness that eats me alive
Is buried way down deep inside

It sucks up my soul and spits it out
The pain of it makes me shout

On the wind my cries are blown
No one to hear, away they've flown

Still in my head the echoes ring
But of love and joy I'll never sing

For no heart is inside of me
Just a hole like you'll never see

With death I have a date ahead of me
A date from which I cannot flee

Not at all do I worry over my fate
Peace at last, I just can't wait

    Heart-less creature making poem with rhyme....I can't imagine, never will try to imagine even if in dream I get opportunity to stay my rest of days finally. The poet who doesn't want to love or to sing in joy.....yet composing poetry. So contrast sounds. Actually ...pain is the God to our senses....it proves again. (Report) Reply

    You reveal all out, we have life and life is to be ended anyway someday, like you me too...A chance of life we should thankful to God for this, we may live in emptiness but see this in new way, it is a space that we can still able to fill up....we got a choice and let make it best for all of us, our life...second to life minutes to craft history before hours gone but forever we will be remembered, your soul created for a mission, while in emptiness decorate the empty part with things that you like_Soul (Report) Reply
