Darkness - Poem by Zimaya Nightshade

Darkness is all around me.
Darkness is all inside me.
Darkness is all I can see.
Darkness is all I can be.
Darkness fills my heart.
Darkness fills my mind.
Darkness controls my choices.
Darkness controls my life.
Darkness runs through my thoughts.
Darkness runs through my veins.
Darkness isn't a tangible thing.
Darkness isn't anything more than me...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I received an e-mail from PoemHunter.com with a poem called 'Lonely' by Dragon Crenshaw one day and loved it. After I wrote the poem in my poetry journal I had the sudden urge to write my own version. And thus this poem was born.

    A poem of darkness, though, yet I think one who can write such truthfully is not all that dark.
    Nice poem. Thanks for the Poet's Notes that helped me understand the poem better.
