The Darkness - Poem by Hazel Durham

Nature unravels as she travels,
Far and wide through the universe,
With her simmering feelings of rejection,
She looks for a new sensation,
That will bring her home
To a place, a dream of escape from the darkness of the past,

As she feels so alone,
She searches in new cultures,
Finding new vultures,
They feed off her need to love,
She swims in shark infested waters
As the sky darkens and rain falls, she looks up above,

To the timeless vastness of space,
Now she looks in the mirror at her star filled eyes in her perfect shaped face,
Darkness travels with her as she suffers long, sleepless nights,
Life is a daily dose of a fright,
Dealing with the reality which she always fights,
As she roams through the universe,

Her private curse
Is a scary faith
With the past traveling fast
Catching her with it's demons of the night,
That destroy the beautiful climate of constant light
She seeks peace beyond her far reaching sight,

She wanders through the greatness of the universe,
She knows it is her faith,
To live with this private curse
That outruns her and teases her with it's bait,
Of the past chasing her across the universe,
That is her private curse and her faith.

    You depict Mother Nature as a primal force that guides us on our life journey and helps us
    find healing for the demons that haunt us.
    Superb write Hazel with great use of strong words and rhymes.
    Very enjoyable read! 👍

    I am in love with your poems. You are a stranger and I feel completely connected to your words. It's beautiful to read.

    To the timeless vastness of space,
    Now she looks in the mirror at her star filled eyes in her perfect shaped face,
    Darkness travels with her as she suffers long, sleepless nights,
    Life is a daily dose of a fright,
    Dealing with the reality which she always fights,
    As she roams through the universe,

    The blink of an eye or travelling far and wide we are left with ourselves. Turning and facing ones self is a place yet to discover. So the lonely path of travel and surrounded by many ever seeking. (Report) Reply

    As she feels so alone,
    She searches in new cultures,
    Finding new vultures,
    They feed off her need to love,

    To be loved is any one's quest.... But one should not land oneself before vultures! They will only tear you to pieces! Unfortunately it is difficult to predict if a harmless bird will turn into a vulture in the end!

    Even when there is darkness around, she is not totally dejected! Though a horrid past haunts, she has resigned to her fate! An arresting write, Hazel!

    A thoughtful study of the universe, Hazel Durham is becoming more and more philosophic.
    She wanders through the greatness of the universe,
    She knows it is her faith,
    To live with this private curse
    That outruns her and teases her with it's bait,
    Of the past chasing her across the universe,
    That is her private curse and her faith............amazing................10
