The Dark Inside Me - Poem by Christine Angelica

The days are fine
But the nights make me crazy.
The darkness outside
Reminds me of the black
Inside my soul.
I ran away from it.
I ran to get rid of it
Still it grows
With each passing day
With each passing night.
You're afraid of my madness
My craziness
But believe me that's what has kept me alive.
You pretend to like me to love me,
So that you keep getting my body
You're afraid of my soul.
Because you know that it is dark
But is pure.
You have a good body,
But you forget you're a soul.
We all are souls
Wrapped in this temporary thing
That we decorate too seriously.
Look beyond it once,
It is just clay
It'll shed.
Look into my soul,
The darkness
Is crazy but it'll keep you alive.

    Christine, a most enjoyable writing incorporating the use of descriptive wording and phrases to make well your point about the lessor aspects of our nature. Thank you for allowing readers to explore a unique (and perhaps, personal) view of the dark side. Indeed...a truly noteworthy effort, Christine! [rating: 10] (Report) Reply
