Darkness Has A Hold On Me

The darkness has a hold on me
Nothing is worse than the things I see
Nightmares haunt me in my dreams
My only way out is my fantasy

If you could see what the darkness does
You would say goodbye to who I was
Come along with me tonight
And let me bring your fears to life.

Come with me and have no fear
You are the one that I hold dear
Don’t look back on days that are gone
It’s time for us, we must move on

When darkness ends and morning comes
They’ll look for us but we’ll be gone

We’ve gone back to the night we met
When the darkness came that night we left
The darkness whispered, “Time to come home”
And then it took us as its own

A Writer In The Dark

I am a writer
A poet to be exact
Poetry is my craft
My words make you react

I am a writer in the dark
Where nothing feels like everything
Where who knows what tomorrow brings

My words can make you laugh or smile
My poems have no particular style
The dark brings me visions of what to write
They use the dark to stay hidden from sight

It often takes me through the night
For it must be perfect,it must be right
Only writers in the dark will know
When the words they write all start to glow

We give you love
We give you hope
We write our poems
To help you cope

When daylight comes my work is done
It’s time to rest and have some fun
I love to write but when I start
I am a writer in the dark

Standing On The Edge Of Darkness

I’m standing
n the edge of Darkness
That special time as the sun
Slowly sinks below the horizon

It is the end of Day
The start of Star Shine
Moonbeams cast shadows
As they shine through the trees

At first the silence is deafening
Slowly the night songs begin
The chirping of the peepers
And the deep throatiness of frogs

If you sit quietly
You may see the creatures of the night
Beginning to gather
As their celebration of life begins

In this world on the edge of Darkness
Life shines brightly
Love creates a certain glow
As a new sunrise warms the earth

The cycle is complete now
All is well again and I am patiently waiting
Until I am again
Standing on the edge of Darkness

Darkness Is Rising… Be Afraid

Maybe it was the pain
The constant aching
That was changing me into something evil

I wasn’t sleeping well
The voices kept me awake
Whispering, so that I couldn’t quite hear them

It was driving me crazy
What were they saying?
What did they want?

What was happening to me?
I didn’t like what I saw
When I looked in the mirror

What I saw was a monster wanting his first kill
It made me shudder. I was no killer!
What the hell was wrong with me?

I had all the exams
Physical and mental
There were no answers, no diagnosis

I grew more and more confused and angry
I wanted to hurt someone

I only knew one thing
I needed to feed my hunger
I needed to kill or I would die

That poor spider never knew what hit him

The Grim Reaper Came Today

My life ended today
There was no pain
Just a sudden darkness
No sound, just a great nothingness

I had no fear
I just wondered, “Now what”?
It was odd to me
My life hadn’t flashed before me

There was no warning sign
Just a realization
That I was dead

As the darkness subsided
I felt myself rising above my body
Just floating

So many thoughts
So many questions
Was it my heart?
Did my new aortic valve fail?

My soul was being lifted
Suddenly a stairway appeared
My only thought was, Led Zeppelin?
It then disappeared

Next thing I knew, I was following
A path through fields of gold
The melody of the song
Brought a smile to my soul

As I walked along the path
A feeling of happiness washed over me
It felt like the cool spray of a waterfall
On a hot summer day

I felt calm… refreshed…thankful
No longer was I chained
To a body that was wearing out
My pain was gone

In the distance I could see a glow
Music was playing songs that I knew
I realized then
That this was the path to Heaven

I could feel the beat again
My steps were in time with the music
Heaven was waiting for me
I just knew it

But then I heard angelic voices singing
Not today Walt”
You’re still needed at home”
It’s time to wake up”

The Demons Of Darkness

A glint of light shot skyward
And summoned the creatures of the dark
One by one their howls filled the night
Their dance of the darkness had begun

All of your phobias, your childhood fears
Surrounded you, taunted you, haunted you
You trembled and gasped as you felt something touch you
A cold, slimy touch as the howling grew louder

The demons of darkness moved closer and closer
You fell to your knees and reached for the heavens
You tried to call out, to beg for forgiveness
But nobody heard you, your demons had won

When you fired that gun, shell casings were ejected
The glint on a casing was the moonlight reflected
It summoned the creatures who knew what you did
And your screams went unheard as their feeding began

Our Pain Won’t Go Away

The pain is pretty constant now
It’s with us all the time
We just want to go to sleep
And wake up feeling fine

The pain pills take the edge off
But they don’t stop the ache
And even if we fall asleep
It comes back when we wake

Like many others that we know
We live with pain each day
And now the politicians want
To take our pills away

We must protect them from themselves”
The politicians say
We think they need to take our pain
And bear it for a day

The regulations that they want
Will only cause more pain
But they don’t really give a damn

They don’t even know our names
