Ultimate Darkness - Poem by Bri Lynne

A gripping realization tugged at my gut
I'd never seen darkness
Before today
I had never felt a splinter of pain
A red-letter day
Never plagued with rotten luck
Before today
The guilt weighed on me
Like an ocean
I wished I could have traded
All of the depreciation
Bottled up from my entire life
Until this wreched moment
Just for it to never have come
To have slept until I was stronger
But the day lay bloody at my feet
Awaiting my reaction
Pulling salty waves from my eyes
Begging for me to finish
Finish in this merciless World
And the day brought pounding rain
Singing like firecrackers
On the roof
And droopy, shadowed clouds
Rolling over and into the ceremony
Tugging at the souls attending
Surely, in my angst
In my pathetic weeping
In my desperate pleas with God
I'd never seen a glimpse of this
Ultimate darkness
