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.

i love it. the twist at the end is interesting and so is the wondering muses of lawlessness and dark paths...

All consuming evil is a hard vacation spot to leave, it keeps you there in shackles.

It's so true; Once you're there, there's no turning back...

On the other hand, I loved it! And I'm going to take this to my list...

It is true, if you let darkness completely consume you you may lose yourself forever. It reads almost like a chant and the final stanza of warning sets it aside from a lot of the 'darker' poetry that is about. NH

For some reason, I always have vampires on the brain.
This definitely makes me think of them.
How a human becomes a demon and how that creature embraces a new dark life.

I like this piece.

Sadly, sometimes we don't even realize it is darkness we have surrendered to...its a tricky thing! Great write, I love the twist at the end.

A dark and foreboding poem. Very deep. It tells you to let the darkness take you, to give into it, but I think it is more reverse psychology in this one. You imply that they have to give in, but that would mean that they didn't want the darkness to begin with, but eventually the persuasion in the poem pushes them into it. Very creative and dark poem, great job. XX
