Dark Truths

Dark Truths

A Poem by S.Diane.L.

Clenching my jaw,

Fists closed tightly,

As I stare into a world of hatred.

Shadowed by disguise,

Like a hallow tree,

We’re too blind to see it.


Holding a deep breath down,

I exhale slowly,

Feeling my heart beat rapidly in my chest,

Thinking to myself,

The world is disgust.

Masked by revenge and destruction.

We’re all too ignorant to realize it.


Swallowing hard,

Eyes straining for control,

Staring at a world that no longer cares,

Turns me bitter,

Lies turn me cold,

Hatred turns me into a monster,

Ignorance turns me cross.


Tears sweep from my eyes,

Realization of the world hits me hard,

The pain was no longer a thud,

But a loud crashing upon my heart,

Thinking this wouldn’t end,

My heart races frantically as I pull the glock from my belt,

The trigger goes and I have finally found peace at last.

Author's Note

I wrote this many years ago, I'd say eight or nine years ago. I discovered this little gem hidden away in my old writing files that I had stored on another hard drive. Thought to myself, why not? I may not write poetry anymore, it just isn't my cup of tea, I write long books now. ☺

Oh, the things that lie hidden in old notebooks and files, then brought to life once again. I have an ole file by my desk where I keep copies of everything I've written, though some have not seen the light of day. I keep them there for needed tweaking, which eventually comes to its fruition.

It's a shame you don't write more poetry. A little buff and shine can go a long way!

The first stanza - hallow tree?

The third stanza - you can palpably BUILD the tension just by switching its last two lines.

At the time of writing your world was white and black NOW you see in shades ot grey... quite a difference.

"Tears sweep from my eyes,

Realization of the world hits me hard,

The pain was no longer a thud,

But a loud crashing upon my heart,"

The state of the world and humanity is disturbing indeed. You discover that ignorance is a monster which triggers hatred and disgust. A very effective writing...:)...............
