'Darkness': - Poem by Sherry Painter

The clouds roll in,
Like the feelings inside me,
They mirror them, my feelings feelings,
Mocking them, practically,
Like a mean old mime.

I feel...
Anger,
Anguish,
Sadness,
Loneliness,
They swirl, nothing but darkness, no light to speak of,
Like the clouds are as they take turns dancing in the sky,
Making their own dark dance,
It is beautiful, I admit,
But inside me,
It is not beautiful,
The clouds seem like they've take control of my heart,
The clouds treat my heart like a marionette would his marionette doll.

My,
Why do I feel like this?
What is the cause of it?
I do not know,
But these...
These emotions are strong,
All consuming,
They consume me,
Whole,
Not taking mercy on me...
