Dark Breaks

2014 SkylarValentine

Light breaks,

Feel it as the night wakes.

This is how the dark takes

the world back in it's arms.

Hushed tones

whispered like a sad song,

filtered through a moon stone

glittering with charm.

Find me

where the world can't bind me,

covered up in finery

leaves as cold as ice.

Lost now

though I can not tell how.

Will you wake me up now?

They can not kill me twice.

Dark eyes

hidden by his disguise.

Promises were all lies.

Only death was kind.

Too late

Soul twisted by cruel fate.

Will you deal out my hate?

It's all that's left behind.

Don't cry

Someday we must all die.

Bury me with blue skies

when the sun was warm.

Dark breaks

Feel it as the day wakes.

This is how the light takes

the world back in it's arms.

This is a very sincere piece of writing, reading through it I can imagine how powerful it must sound when read from a stage. I write with less emphasis on rhyme, but your writing still offers a unique description (especially lines 5-8). Thanks for sharing.

Lovely poem-makes me think of fantasy, horror, and the night and day cycle.

Beautiful and thoughtful - there is a warm comfort in the words among the dark and dreary background.
