Let The Darkness In

Let The Darkness In

A Poem by Diana Owen Busy with Life BBS!



Let the darkness take over your heart.


Let it in ~


Let the darkness seep in to your skin.


Let it consume you~


Let the darkness devour your soul.


Let it take you~


Let the demon control the mind.


Let him have you~



Give in to sin.

Feel it~

Give in to hatred.

Consume it~

Give in to aggression.

Fight it~

Give in to complete solitude.

Accept it~


Follow the darkened path ,

to a life of loneliness and


Give in to all your desires,

Let its evil embrace you.

For once you have traveled

 Down it’s road,

You may never find your way back.

poetry with a moral twist - very creative. I kept waiting for the positives of giving into the darkness - as that seemed to be where the path was leading - then you throw the twist in at the end - bringing a warning to the words - transforming the work altogether. very nice job.

Without light there would be no darkness like yin and yang. Through the darkness that we walk upon we can always find wisdom if that is what we seek. I like the picture you added to your poem. Well written and beautifully expressed.

Cold and chilling. Come over to the darkside? I don't know if it's an acctual invite or a warning for those who stray.
Very erie and sobering.

I liked the stop and go feeling of this poem. It was dark yet realistic. Each sentence was short driving home the importance of each and every word. Great poem!

Diana, once again you've brought us to the brink of the dark side, only to snatch us back at the very end. Excellent write.

intense, to be sure.

and for a good GOOD girl like me, a little shocking hehe. i'm like "NO! I can't!" haha

"Give in to complete solitude.

Accept it~"

something like that, though... i can very much relate to. sometimes... the darkness seems so deep. the darkness of the world.

true words cloaked in this one. Too far gone is too far gone....and it is so much easier to follow the darker path than the lighter one. Eloquent writing.
