Songs of the Dark

Songs of the Dark

A Poem by Jessica Lima

Deep inside of me,

At the back of my mind,

Resides a nasty creature

Very difficult to hide.


But from time to time,

It comes out to play.

If I want control

There is no other way.


It walks with my legs,

Speaks with my voice,

And I must play along

There is no other choice.


But you see, this is me

In my only true form

I am mean, I am bad

This is how I was born.


 I might appear nice,

But don't get it twisted.

If you happen to die

Will be like you never existed.

Nicely penned and must have a control on the creature, that can prove harmful

I loved this. We all have a dark side, some of us more than others, and keeping it under control can be a nightmare in its own right! You have xpressed that duality perfectly. Thank you for a great read.

Wow, not going to mess around with you! Excellent and dark poem! I think we all have that little demon in the back of the brain, that propensity to evil. Part of the human condition. You have inspired tonight, thanks!

An interesting take on what truly lies within the dark side of ourselves. Kinda like having the Yin & Yang experience going on within our psyche. Nice work. A creative and unique write. :)

After reading your well penned piece this came to mind; an 'alter ego' (Latin, "the other I") is a second self, which is believed to be distinct from a person's normal or original personality. Nice write .. :-)

haha yes. in truth I am quite sweet. so this was a shock to write but felt good!
I got this very true... Why we pretend to be someone else... Why we always hide our darkest side if we can't exist without it... A well crafted piece of writing... Keep it up
