Into The Shadows - Poem by October Freeman

Into the shadows
By: October Haven Freeman

Dark thoughts lure you in...
Murderous beings see you out...

Shrouded figures haunt the darkest corners in your mind...
Twisted thoughts take place...

As you sit amongst the outsiders,
The freaks...

You get worse...
Head home to sleep.

Into the shadows...
Into complete darkness.

Shrieking winds...
Flashing lightning...

Causing terror throughout the world,
Never thought we'd get so sinister.

Into the shadows we remain...
The shadows keeps us somewhat sane...

Pitch black...
Where we all live.

We have our days,
Our few moments of insanity...

The moments where you break free of humanity...
Where you feel like you can do anything.

When you let your mind drift to least proper thoughts,
And let them soothe the burden you once held,
Now toss.

Keep thinking,
About these darker things.

For they ease you into an awakened slumber.

Murder is mercy.
Suicide is heaven.

The shadows are an escape...
From it all...

    Wow. I don't know how else to put it. Amazing diction and vocabularly, it gave your poem such a sense of how I imagine you wanted it to sound. It really felt, to use your words, dark, sinister, murderous. My favorite lines were 'The moments where you break free of humanity... / Where you feel like you can do anything.' That's something I would expect someone older to say. Very mature. I give it a 10. (Report) Reply
