'The Darkness' - Poem by Kelly Seale
The Darkness is all around me-
It's so sweet and thick, you can cut it with a knife,
They say that there is a light, at the end of the tunnel,
they say there is Life
I am curious to see if They even have a clue,
The Darkness is so smothering-
I 'm afraid, and I don't know what to do.
My heart beats loudly, my veins dance with a pulse,
The razor's edge is seductively tempting-
Teasing me with it's wicked smile.
My skin breaks out in gooseflesh,
And sweat drips down hard from my brow.
But my heart's not in it, my nerve is lost,
The Darkness grows a shade lighter-
loosening it's grip from my throat.
I take a breath and become a fighter,
And I realize that Life is worth living-
Yes, for me, Life is worth living- at all cost.
