Stay Clear of the Dark


Stay Clear of the Dark

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you were pushed to far?
All doors lead to destinations that we choose to lock or do not enter.
Where our souls are hidden and our skeletons collect cobwebs,
only the dark can tell where are the keys to hell?
As you view others on the street, you should be careful of those you meet, for every dark corner has its demise, and every gentle whisper does not have its prize.
Someday I think I have fallen in the gates of hell, only when I scream, I can feel the voices of heaven saying to me, do not cry my child for I am with you always.
As I sink farther and farther into my own tears, I wonder whats behind the closet doors and dimensions that I once feared.
Is it a pair of piercing eyes, or blood curdling shadows that seem to haunt my dreams.
DON'T! I scream as the pain become too unbearable to fathom,
all I see is my blood in tiny little splatters.
I fear one day that I will walk closer to the dark, O God I pray, that someone will help me stay clear of the dark.
Are you afraid of the dark?

I love poems like this , dark vs the light , and the more mystery in it the better , jesus spoke with so much wit and spirit so i think we need to do the same , love yr writings

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
