A Dark Side Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

A Dark Side

Rating: 4.4


You asked
if I had
a dark side.

Most of my life
has been lived
on the dark side.


But I always
believed in the power
and cosmic beauty
of solar energy
radiant vibrant stellar
life giving light.


You asked
if I had
a dark side.

Most of my life
has been lived
on the dark side.


Yet my heart and soul were
no part of the madness
the blackness the void
except as reluctant captive
resisting the entombing life
depleting molasses dark side.

A dark side..a sense of being there to long, wanting to break the mould into light. A thought provoking poem! ; D

Another great write, I have been on the dark side numerous times both in life and writing. The key is can you climb out and balance it with a good side. Love your choice of words and it just flows.10+

I'm drawn to the originality of this poem and I relate strongly to it since I've lived on both sides of that same equator. Very nice poem indeed.10/10

The sudden switch from dark tales to all great light tales is splendidly done. Great work
