I Cried In The Darkness

I Cried In The Darkness

A Poem by Randomness

A poem about pain


I cried in the darkness.

I trembled in the rain.

I felt my heart breaking

And shatter from the pain.


Looked upon the distance.

I looked out to the sky.

Felt an empty feeling

In the wind whipping by.


Land went on forever

Across the deep dark earth,

Stretching out and onward

With nothing left of worth.


Two steps to a doorway

That leads nowhere at all.

Two steps to a silence

Where no one hears you call.


Cause hurt will go unnoticed

And pain is not set free.

It lingers in the heart

Where no one else can see.


Simple logic really

To those of us who know,

That we cry in the darkness

Cause there’s no where else to go.

This one has a dark night of the soul quality about it. Interestingly, the speaker goes indoors to seek some relief but does not find it. In the great spiritual traditions, going inward into the deep mind is the only way to find peace. Perhaps pain is the signal to make that inward journey.
