Wrapped in darkness

Poem Commentary

This poem is about a bitter person who never grew up.

Wrapped in darkness

Your anger feeds on your resentment
The darkest place to live
Youth in all its glory
Has taken away all you have to give
No one makes you happy..... or pleases you.... in any way
And when they try to do so
You scream.... and snap.... and prey

But the only one ...... messing things up
Is ......You .... with all the might
Of a soul thats wrapped in darkness
With tinsel all outside

Paints a pretty picture until the words come flowing through
Damning all the world .....and all its done to you

When given opportunity to change the life you've led
The road you choose.... is more conflicting
Than any words I 've said

So don't tell me that you love me
And change your mind ......at times
This only shows that your ......love
Is already full........ of used up lines

So true...there are always those that just keep taking those same wrong turns. I get the strong sense of fed-up and realization of the inevitable. Stay strong my gifted friend. God Bless.

Wow...you said it! Its beautiful tapestry you have hanging....and it captures the moment exactly....beautiful and deadly...wonderful work, wonderful rhythm it breaths life, and anger. great job.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
