865 - Poem by Raymond Yaris
Darkness.. It fills my entire being..
with all my strength, I try as much to get loose from it.
So I run.. for escaping it ain't easy.
Each and every single day I come to dark and empty hallways
So dark it engulfs my earthly senses
I spend much of my time in places far away..
Coz I know there would always be light there
And I smile. I laugh as much as I can while I'm
still far from it.
People don't realize that behind my every
laughter I cry inside coz whenever I think of coming home
I know that darkness would surround me again.
But still I have to build myself up so I could
find another home where I'm gonna be far from that place.
From that darkness.. time came that the sun brought light to me..
It shone so brightly that it made me forget the darkness..
My hopes were filled knowing that whenever the sun is with me
darkness would be far..
I savored each and every second while I'm at her arms..
She, the sun craddled me so sweetly
I fell inlove with her.
But just when I thought I was freed from the darkness
The sun faded and showed me her dark side
My fear has once more came true.
Oh, how I plead for her to take me out of the dark.
I wished for her to never change and never to
adapt the darkness where I came.
And now I once more linger among dark, endless hallways..
Hide behind my smiles and take cover in my laughter.
Oh, sun.. please come back.. Its you i need now..
Don't let your night overcome you and swallow me once more..
Coz I'm tired of running.
