Darkness

When the darkness descends upon your skin,

Don't let it fill you, don't let it in.

Don't turn to look or let it know,

That your willing to let the light go.

When the light is gone, the darkness will embrace.

Those who wish it to take lights place.

When you find a passion in the dark of night

Be watchful of a love that blinds your sight.

For darkness has beauty that hides all lies

Tricks to think love is before your eyes.

There is something that lurks in the dark

Longing to drink in your spark

Be careful of what you see and feel

For you may be it's every next meal.

This poem is so true. Evil lurks around every corner and we often fall prisoner to its mysterious hold. I really love your use of imagery in here. Please read my poems and tell me what you think
