Their Lights Has Gone Out Poem by Wilfred Mellers


Their Lights Has Gone Out
Written by: Wilfred Mellers
Wednesday, July 23,2014


Shadows blend in the darkness
Passions acquired diminishes with the dawn
Spirits once I knew now dearly departs
Gracefully I grow to know those hearts deceits
Sudden movements brings on fright
Shallow embrace meaningless thoughts in white

Silent voices screams in the night
Necromancers frolic to a macabre delight
Pale faces never smiles not even for awhile
Shades of white devoid illumination despite
Romances creep while angels weep
Now darkness consumes morning's first light

Never knew I felt so much
Felt a Poltergeist's tender touch
Wide awake so I dream
Strikes my eyes the moon's beams
Watching over me who knows what it be
In the void there's nothing to see

Never true those ones I knew
Friends gained only few so true
Now like sunshine they left me behind
Truly never knew me well, they couldn't tell
Gains wanted for darkness they flaunted
Now they shout for their lights has gone out
