In The Dark

In The Dark

A Poem by WillaDanvers

Turn on those lights and reach out to those you love, don't sit in that darkness, alone.


When they run on cursed autopilot,

Leave you sitting out in the dark,

Wondering why you made the mistake,

Of walking down this particular path,


Days go by, stumbling slowly along,

Asking questions in the silence,

Preparing for the day I must,

Change the path these feet do walk,


Life isn’t all roses and sunshine,

Sometimes it’s sitting the dark alone,

You see the things you close your eyes to,

Pushing you towards a truth you don’t want,


Closing the door to your aching heart,

Day by day, the wind gets colder,

Standing tall against the wind with strength,

Pushing away those who forget you exist,


Not a doll to be taken advantage of,

Taking control of her own damn life,

Cursing the day she chose that mistake,

Walking down the path to pain and tears,


Standing tall in her own strength,

Loving the skin, she chooses to wear today,

No longer needing the one who sleeps,

Leaving you sitting out in the dark, alone.

I am a part time poet, who's words sometimes ring true but otherwise have only gathered information from music, stories or a singular feeling. Anything really. Enjoy the words, and leave a few kin.. more..
