Forest of Dark

by Nick who Plays Pool   Mar 9, 2007

My soul is flying so low, nowhere to go
It's starting to shatter, fading away
And there's nothing I can do but run
I'm lost in the darkness, trying to find the light.

I'm so lost, in this forest of dark
Looking for the exit, like a maze in shadow
Walking and running, slowly fading
My heart is breaking, under the darkness.

If I find the way out, I can be peaceful,
Till the ending day, when I die
All this thought is drowning me, into dusk
Leaving a dent; in my mind.

I'm finding the way, the lights growing fast
I can not help, but think of my home
The feeling of security, the shelter of my thoughts
So close, to the end; of this nightmarish trend.

My hearts turning to dust, Im still holding on
Breaking away, my hearts holding strong
Then I saw light, enter my mind
It chased out the shadows, and I finally broke free.

    Leaving a dent; in my mind. = emit the semi-colon

    the lights growing = the light's growing fast

    help, but = emit the comma

    end; of = emit the semi-colon

    light, enter my mind = emit the comma

    Sigh, did you do the comma's and semicolon's on purpose? They were in fact pretty annoying. I didn't really enjoy this poem that much. It didn't have any flow... no rhythm... nothing that interesting. A slight uniqueness but... that's pretty much it. Not the best poem I've read, but nonetheless a 5/5.

    Well done,
