Into The Darkness

Into The Darkness

A Poem by DepthWriter

Powerful, deep, and lots of punch in a small piece...

Into the darkness

I fled down the sewers of yesterday

Polluted minds, chaos running the streets

streets of damnation, evil lurking about

Hiding within the shadow

underneath the streets, where they walk

They filled souls with hatred

the bleeding kind, that had no valve

cut-off lines severed, splinted by pain

boiling differences, steamed hearts

Protecting what was mine

where the eyes of red shone most

Tunnels sprouted in every direction

small to big- like runaway weeds

Some were okay, others you knew not

They breathed off of your fear

Encased in passion, a career they assumed

manifested over the years- to become dead

Societies fate left in there bloody, soiled palms

Taking from the poor, giving to the money hungry

Calling it "Helping economy", while it was the opposite

Lured into hearty homes, and appetites

Splendor was not innocent here, it swarmed towns

always the lonely, the sad harnessed there thirst

There is an intimate feel of loneliness, of darkness, and it spreads across the nations... You take us all to a place above our common steps where we can few the sorrow of the world...

I have been writing for five-years, been through hell and back. My writing has evolved from rhyme, to depth... a profound deepness for all things around me. I believe as writers, we all must be able.. more..
