Close your eyes

by flutterflies   Apr 27, 2009


Lose your eyes
and you'll see,
There is nothing
Left for me,
Blackness all around,
No Brightness,
and no sound.

I had it once;
I had it all,
now it's gone,
I watch it fall.
Times have changed,
I'm moving on,
Battles lost
And battles won.

Darkness calls,
It pulls me in,
I try to stall
But darkness wins.
Right from wrong,
Wrong from right,
I don't care;
I've lost the fight.

Tears roll down,
They damp my cheeks,
I can't stand,
My legs are weak,
My knees buckle,
I fall to the ground,
Now I'm lost,
I shan't be found.

Close your eyes,
and you'll see,
There is nothing,
Left for me,
Blackness all around,
No Brightness,
and no sound.

    "Darkness calls,
    It pulls me in,
    I try to stall
    But darkness wins.
    Right from wrong,
    Wrong from right,
    I don't care;
    I've lost the fight."

    These lines really hit home with me mostly because I'm usually a loner and am constantly shunned by other people. So it's greatly relate to me and others like me, if any.

    This was a wonderfully written poem. You repeated the first verse, and yet you changed the smallest of details and yet changed it's meaning. A thought provoking write. Well Done.
