Darkness (No Fear)

Darkness (No Fear)

A Poem by DLP


A knock at the door,

every night at this hour.

the darkness surrounds you, looking to devour

but this time is different- come and see my dear,

this time you're not running, you wont cower in fear

you will stand and fight, you will walk that long mile

you will swing open that door and greet darkness with a smile

Author's Note

Hi, I have been writing for a couple years. but I've never made anything public before so this is a big step for me. I appreciate ALL feed back good or bad, and thank you so so so much for even taking the time to read my work. If you'd be willing to leave a review id appreciate it greatly.

This first step t’ward the bitter truth,
is shown in shining verse.
Could us a bit of meter work,
But I have done much worse.

So give your muse a well-earned hug,
And send it out again.
To search the darkness of your mind,
for some great gift or sin.

It’s from those hidden crevices,
or someplace I can’t find,
where comes the next great verse or yarn
To hang out on the line.

Splendid! I can't have enough of it. The imagery is immensely breathtaking.
