The Dark place where beasts rest

The Dark place where beasts rest

A Poem by Pebbles

In my darkness
There are no cracks
No rays of light
Trying to peek through
Only helpless moments
A shadow of the one I knew before
Looking back
I know I lost myself
long before I even noticed
The look on your face
When meeting by chance
Says a million nothings
 To a man that has forgotten how to care
Hither onwards this lowly soul will wander
Damn you for not telling me before
Damn them all
How was I to know I was cursed
Sometimes it is wise to tell
Your friends the truth you see
Behind those lost grey eyes
For if by not revealing the truth
You loose a friend to the darkness
What was your silence for
But to save your own back
Be wise next time
Now leave me 
For the beast
Is hungry
And you look like a
Satisfying snack my dear

The end makes me think how I've heard dragons find us crunchy and well-paired with ketchup.

What a depth of life and death here... in the darkest of shadows... that place of questions and sorrows that swift over you... A powerful vision of a haunting world.

When is the beast not hungry? What is wise? To tell a friend a truth that will save or to sit behind lying eyes? Silence is golden... gray drifts between the lines
Most people will lose themselves long before they find themselves lost... you just have to remember to not snack upon the unsuspecting trying to pet you...

I love this Pebbles... you've out done yourself ;-)

I like the poem. The poem told a interesting tale. I like the description and the desire of the words.
"I know I lost myself
long before I even noticed"
I like the strong ending to the excellent poem.
