Darkness

Darkness

A Poem by hogan
"

An attempt to describe how good things cannot last, and more

"

When you wander in open, lush green fields of grass

When shadows, that cannot be cast, are at their shortest

You feel safe as the intensity of cool colours make an easy pass

Towards the horizon, is a forest dark, the shadows you detest

 

Even though the light you’re immersed in

Bleaches, dries and withers; forbids you to stare

Directly at its radiant, streams that burn your skin

Sometimes you turn upwards to catch a glance, but cannot bear the glare

 

The comfort does not last, with time the fiery furnace

Descends towards the detested gloom of the forest

The shadows creeping,  long strangling arms close in earnest

Reaching their dark, sucking tentacles , ready to digest

 

And draw out of me the pleasure of the protective light

The shadows become lost in the encompassing blackness

The day had its bright climax, but has descended to night

Now all that is around me, is hidden, in the darkness
