Dark Art

A Dark Poem

God came when it was dark
he spoke to me in a whisper
a song
I felt scarred, branded,
alone in the dark
every emotion on fire
but it wasn’t God it was simply a voice
No promise was true, no lie believed
I could feel the world I could feel everything
then in the darkness a light came
another voice
thunder, a storm,
shadow
I am not here, I am not there
darkness is not to be feared but enjoyed
truth lies in the shadow
it engulfs us surrounds us
I am but a moment a second hand of movement
a hint of life
and then no more
not forever after
not a fantasy but just a blink got in this moment of time
a blur of emotion crying out
that’s fine by me
I surrender to
the never ending battle of today
