DARK

DARK

A Poem by angeleapaugh

DARK
I DON'T SAY MUCH BUT BOY WHEN I DO
I SLICE THRU THE DARKNESS I REACH OUT FOR YOU

YOU CAN'T HIDE IN A CORNER OR HOLD IN YOUR BREATH
FOR I'M COMING FOR YOU AND I'M BRINGING YOUR DEATH

YOU TAKE FOR YOURSELF WHAT DOES NOT BELONG
YOU THINK IT'S YOUR RIGHT BUT YOU ARE SO WRONG

THE NIGHT IT IS DARK THE COLD WRAPS AROUND
YOUR THROAT IT IS SILENT IT MAKES NOT A SOUND

YOU SHIVER ALL OVER BUT YOU CANNOT GET WARM
BECAUSE I'LL RUE THE DAY THAT YOU EVER WAS BORN

IT WON'T GO UN NOTICED THE DARKNESS YOU SPREAD
IT WILL TAKE OVER YOUR SOUL IT WILL FILL YOU WITH DREAD

YOUR NOT MUCH OF NOTHING BUT YOU THINK YOUR A KING
YOUR THE WORM IN THE APPLE A SONG I CAN'T SING

YOU STOMP ON THE HEART OF ALL THAT YOU MEET
YOU THINK YOU HAVE WON THAT I'LL FALL AT YOUR FEET

THE WIND IT BLOWS COLD AND IT FREEZES MY FACE
I KNOW I MUST LEAVE I CAN'T LIVE IN THIS PLACE

THERE'S A DARKNESS HERE IT WRAPS ALL AROUND
IT COVERS MY BODY AND LIES ON THE GROUND

BUT I WILL NOT SLEEP WHERE YOU CALL MY NAME
I'M DONE WITH YOUR LIES AND TIRED OF THE GAME

I'VE SAT IN MY HELL AND ACCEPTED MY PLIGHT
I'VE PUSHED YOU AWAY WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT

I AM NOT YOUR SLAVE FOR NOW I'VE BEGUN
TO ARISE FROM YOUR DARKNESS INTO THE SUN

Forcibly and fiercely written.

From start to finish I felt the fury and rage you have carried and expressed behind each line. As if you are now the bringer of death.

Pure rage. Beyond hatred. Disgust. It's time... as I feel you feel... for this to be over and done; and it will be ceased, no, executed by your very own hands. Swiftly. Irrevocably. Dismissed. Destroyed. Sent into oblivion. Forevermore.

Much love,

LR

Angelea this is so powerful! It isn't hard to see that this person has not only treated you horribly, but most people he's come in contact with. I can just about see the spittle flowing from your lips as you curse this person. I'm glad to see that you have managed to rid yourself of whatever hold he had on you.

Take care - Dave

Powerful and worthwhile journey in your words.
"I AM NOT YOUR SLAVE FOR NOW I'VE BEGUN
TO ARISE FROM YOUR DARKNESS INTO THE SUN"
I do understand the above lines. We need to taste dirt to be able to rise-up and see the light of some hope. Thank you Angelea for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome.
being trapped in a one way relationship is very ensnaring at times .. it goes to abuse at its end .. i am glad the the "end" in your poem is one who has broken loose and flown ... i agree with others .. forcefully stated ...seems like this line: "BECAUSE I'LL RUE THE DAY THAT YOU EVER WAS BORN" should be "You'll Rue ..." or perhaps "I'll Rule ..." bit that is just my little ol' opinion ;) i love the strength and courage of your protagonist.

That is dark and powerful! I wish all the girls were this strong. You formed each and every line very well but the ones that jumped out to me were the last six lines...I enjoyed reading it!

Darkly pretty and well-written in its concept.

There are several letters missing from the poem that you should add in though. ;)

I still enjoyed it quite much.

Very bold and encouraging poem. I loved each and every line. I wish every woman stands up for her rights and raise her voice against injustice. Truly inspiring work.
