Beauty In Darkness

A Poem by idiotproof--1

Just a short poem I did.

Beauty In Darkness

Darkness hides all the awful things that seek you out in the light
and covers all the terrible images the light reveals.
I can see more in dark than in light.
Have you ever felt a sunrise
or tasted moonlight?
have you ever heard the night slowly crawl across the horizon;
devouring what is left of the day.
Secrets are whispered silently and lost in the dark. 
Echos and silence mingle together to create the symphony of shadows.
I hear more in the silence of the night.
Have you ever felt the embrace of darkness
or caught the scent of morning rays of light?
Even the most quiet words spoken in silence carry the power
of a roaring thunder storm.
I speak more words in my mind than I ever could aloud.
Have you ever felt pain?
Whether it was the smallest burn or your lungs straining while you choke under water.
It completely surrounds you and buries itself deep into your soul 
even if it only lasts a second.
I feel nothing.

Powerful work, I am left a bit at a loss to express my feelings beyond, really liking it. Excellent imagery of all senses and Numb. final three words, perfect.

I really liked the idea of holding the words that you want to resonate with the reader - well done!

Posted 6 Years Ago

I like your use of metaphors and how you intertwine the senses with natural forces. It was a nice touch to use a key word t create space between each section. It was emotional and well written thank you. :)

I really like how you played on so many of the senses within this piece and yet it feels as though the emotion is so completely prominent it's almost overwhelming (In a good way - far from overbearing. i hope this makes sense) Stunning imagery even though this is far beyond heartbreaking.

This is quite the eye opener ( forgive the irony in that sentence). You show here that we should all enjoy the senses we have and be happy with what we lack (whether it be a physical handicap or something else). I think you meant 'burn of your lungs' as appose to 'burn or your lungs.' I don't quite understand the numb bit at the end. Are you trying to say that it is better to feel something rather than nothing at all? Either way, this is a lovely bit of writing and I encourage you to write more!
