Murky Black.. - Poem by DEEP DARK SOUL POET

A murky blackness radiating
from the depths of my mind.
From the shadows to the air,
Together they entwine.

A greater evil of which, has never been known,
it s presence sends a sensation far deeper then skin or bone.
Painful memories and suicidal thoughts erupt.
Even the most pure, shall become corrupt.

Many will be blinded by lies, for years to come.
The truth shall be seen by few, maybe even none.

Everything we know.
Everything we are.
Every time we bleed.
Every little scare.

False memories dance within my head.
I remember every tear, I ever shed

Falling endlessly
through sudden darkness.
Light was perished
before my eyes.

Life and meaning are forgotten
in this lightless tide.
Love was vanquished,
but not the memory.

Hope was destroyed,
and with it,
the light of the heart
was thrown into the shadows.

It’s like I was dying
I was seeing my life flashing
