Of Darkness Poem by Alex Gomez

Of Darkness

Rating: 5.0


A monstrous hand
Surrounds the Earth
Encompassing all
With thunderous force

The energy flows
Tainted and dark
Infecting the planet
The truth is stark

Corrupt and mad
The future is bleak
And mass delirium
Is at its peak

Yet you must retain
A glimmer of hope
And continue to battle
Up the slippery slope

And through your persistence
Your brilliance will shine
And the dark shall notice
And be killed by the light

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

Well written my freind. A very unique rhyme scheme with the first and last verses not rhyming but the middle three flowing and rhyming nicely. From the reading standpoing the fact that the last verse does not rhyme cancels the flow that was created in the previous three verses. Other that that a very vivid and beautiful work.

Welcome back and thats from someone who has been missing from 2006. It seems we poets are accursed to stop, ponder, postpone and then a flurry of activity proclaims we have something to say. ___Baru Gobira

I'm trying to get back in the game. Haven't written anything decent in a while, so I'm bringing the spark back.
