Darkness

Darkness

A Poem by Numb
"

Finding that one person, then watching them vanish.

"

You do not have to be scared,
You do not have to be fearful,
Living in this cold dark life.
You only have to listen �"
Listen to the surrounding sounds.
Waiting for the one to come.
Waiting to be taken into the light. 
Escape the darkness.
Find the one you’ve been waiting for.
Tell someone about your fears.
Tell him about your losses. 
In turn, you will learn his.

In this world it’s bright.
Everything has achieved its balance. 
Meanwhile, secrets start arising,
Coming up to the forbidden surface.
You learn that soon you will be alone.
You learn that he is dying.
Dying, and you can do nothing.
You feel helpless.
Meanwhile, love still burns bright.
The loves thrives to stay alive,
Thrives to live on forever.
The love dims softer and softer,
A dull light that is no longer visible.
The love is gone forever,
Along with him.
Again, you are all alone.

The light disappears, 
Enveloped again in darkness. 
Returning is your cold, dark life.
No longer do you listen,
For the air around you is silent. 
Not a person nor creature stirs,
Threatening to make things worse.
Fear has come back.
The world seems to have stop moving �"
No longer moving because your love is gone.
You become a hard, unbreakable shell,
Wishing for him to return.
You know that won’t happen, though.
He is not returning �"
He is not coming back to life.
The darkness has become your home �"
Your home where you will live forever.
Until you meet him again,
Where love always lives on.

Numb
Wherever you see a space (ie. between: in turn you will learn his, and in this world it's bright, etc.), it's like a change of theme.

This is one of the best poems I've read in a while. I really like the rhythm of it all, and how you can almost envision the journey of love that the person seems to take. The begining, sounding like an innocent start of a relationship. Then, the learning of secrets, and the knowledge that soon you will again be alone. It's just...really amazing. Without even having a plot, you have written a story. I think it's great(:

i enjoyed reading this; with its passionate and true meaning behind every word(: it reminds me much of myself and how i have felt.
"Waiting for the one to come.
Waiting to be taken into the light.
Escape the darkness.
Find the one you’ve been waiting for.
Tell someone about your fears."
*are my favorite lines.

Sometimes I think when we feel lonley we are vulnerable to those that would take advantage of this emotional time in life. The wisdom you show in the last stamza sums this piece up nicely. I agree secrets will eventually destroy. Good write ~ Dani

you draw such an amazing emphasis on darkness and the shadowy realm,
at the same time, giving script to light, contrasting the balance between the
two, i found this poem to flow with a mysteriousness, as if to ponder
the eternal realms of the night, wishing for a love that is never coming back,
you did a really great job, keep it up :)

I enjoyed reading this poem. It was so sad without begging for the sadness (if that makes sense). Your words were simple but they still evoke feelings of emptiness, love, loss and emptiness again with a touch of hope at the end. Excellent.
