The Dark Side – A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

We all have a dark side
There’s no denying it
It hides deep within each of us
Waiting for its moment

Poets use it
Writers use it
But once unleashed
There’s no stopping it

It will take over your mind
Like that little devil sitting on your shoulder
It is the evil side of us
The side that makes us write what we normally don’t

A side that creates monsters and demons
Snarling on the pages of our poetry
Jumping off the pages at our readers
Seducing them to the dark side

Yes, we all have a dark side
Mine is stronger when I’m tired
So I let it flow onto the page
Cleansing me, refreshing me

When you feel it coming
Just relax and let it go
