The Dark and Darkness

The Dark and Darkness

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror
"

" We all have a darkness near and dear. Some feed their darkness to extreme until the darkness claims supreme. What you feed your darkness that is what darkness becomes just for you."

"
                   


                             
   The light no longer exist

Only the dark and darkness is all I see

Deep in this under tow or psychotic shade

I sit with the obscurity that wicked made

to what end

Overlooked by veil or disguise

a spotlight in reprise


this ominous dark curtain drop

far beyond center stage a place marked X

from the blue sky's to my demise

this place is not hell this is dead in denial

late for the reaper and one last kiss

a dull sinkhole short of the abyss

writing in my head a plot and a twist

the unreliable and suicidal list


 darkness steps inside

devouring every nerve I hide

a paralyzing strangle

pressure from every angle

suppressed screams die within

this predator's dream land

breathing escapes me

Movement leaves

against a constrictions reach

speech betrays again

sounds intense and stunning

listening still

the last melody hitting my ear

the breaking of bones

my shattering frame

I did not recognize agony's

hiss and surrender


a soft vibration begins to rattle

a growl that began slow

made for the roar of a battle

Deafening

to the Echo inside my head

a sensation of hot water

dripping hot rain

Saliva running off huge fangs

waiting the command

a Bite deep in flesh

again and again


deep in the dark I've been set free  

piece by piece as a hunger feeds

a virtual force indeed

I suddenly see

behind the creature's eyes, my eyes

monstrous vision

to prey with Precision

darkness is everywhere

that's where I will be


I am the face screaming beneath a crack in the Ice

I am the scratch at the surface of you scared pale white

I am the movement in the dark you cannot see

I am the shine in a child’s smile while hiding a knife

I am Still alive, soaked in black and I am not alone

I am coming to tuck you in your bed

bless you with my kiss

to the sound of breaking bones

I like it! There's a metric ton of awesome horror details and a good flow throughout. There are so many great lines that steadily but quickly build up the horror. Very good all around.

I like how you maintain the level of poetry despite the greatness of horror. The poetry is still spotted on and that is how I wanted it to be for your piece. Did it well. :)

Sincerely,

CAPOLAVORO, I do appreciate your outstanding review thank you

Sheer Terror
Sweet Jesus, Sheer Terror, that was sheer terror! I've been on a horror movie binge lately (I love them, but originality is sparse these last five years), and your poem could be included in several I've seen recently. I do get it that what's in the Darkness is of our own making...but, some of us gots some twisted s**t in our heads and giving that form...in the dark? *shiver* Uh Uh...

Deep in the dark I've been set free.

Darkness is everywhere and that's where I will be.

Sometimes, we can only find ourselves in the darkness, and sometimes the darkness gives us comfort.

Such a creative writing.
Well done :)
