Darkness

Rating: 4.9
Within me I carry a world of darkness
It’s so deep that my mind goes blind
It makes me see things in a false light
And I feel like I have lost the fight
Open the windows, give me some light
To illuminate the depths of my insight

This darkness has taken up my entire being
It has occupied my body, invaded my soul
Let me rid of it, before it spreads around
And swallows up the beaming stars

Nosheen, your poem sees darkness where there should be light and insight. It is a beacon of light for those lost at sea. Wonderfully written.

Our minds mainly work with two attitudes. These are positive attitude and negative attitude. When we are in negative side we feel the darkness of life which may be called despair. Dear madam, you have so touchingly inscribed here about the despair and at last you have delineated the positive side of life in last stanza incisively having a bright hope. A great write indeed. Full vote.

What a beautiful poem! I find enough sparks in this thought provoking piece of work that articulates despair in such a magnificent way! My favorite lines: Why did he weep? /As if his heart had burst/As if his chains were unshackled/As if his locks were smashed! Top score!
