Treasure Island

miya rob

(california)

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 Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
