Darkness is my face

by kylexthexmagnificent   Jan 9, 2009


Darkness has fallen around me,
once again i am caught,
familiar feelings emerge from the past,
reality i can't seem to grasp.

i thought i was safe from it all,
i realize how foolish i was,
i put it away in a deep dark place,
now i clench my fist as tears pour down my face.

had i not learned??
am i not stronger than before??
i question my abilty to learn from my mistakes,
i know the wrong choice i am about to make.

my eyes staring at the ground,
i wipe away my tear stained cheeks,
i pour the contents of the bottle in my hand,
one by one i swallow til i can barely stand.

my body limply falls to the floor,
i close my eyes squeezing out my last tear,
tonight i have fallen from grace,
dead and gone, darkness is my face

    Very dark, and emotional piece, I could feel what you were feeling, and that's something a lot of poetry on here cannot make me do, is feel. Great job. 5/5

    Nice. i like the poem from the strat to the finish. Well sometimes we do fall back to our past makes us weak and confused.

    my eyes staring at the ground,
    i wipe away my tear stained cheeks,
    i pour the contents of the bottle in my hand,
    one by one i swallow til i can barely stand.

    - this stanza really stood out for me I like how you displayed how you wasted ur life away by turning to drinking for solace.

    Overall you have done a wonderful job in crafting this poem

    5/5 from me
