the darkness settles


the darkness settles all around me
like a monster of thick black darkness set out to devour me

the darkness settles
i scream for help but none comes

the darkness settles
i look around franticly trying to find a way out of this waking nightmare

the darkness settles
i give up i let let the darkness settle

the darkness settles
this time like a soft blanket here to comfort me

the darkness settles
and i disappear in a cloud of settling darkness

the darkness settles
do you hear my screaming

the darkness settles
and so do i settle from a sleep that is a sleep no more but a curse from which i will never return

the darkness settles

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
