Waves of darkness

Waves of darkness

                           By jfarrell

 

Here in my tower I watch the coming storm;

The raven coloured clouds of regret;

The silvery-edged waves of woe, drenching my soul;

The lightening sheds a spotlight on my aloness.

 

Pain-wrapped feelings of guilt;

Pain wrapped feelings of need;

Drink the beer, drown it;

Smoke the weed, numb it.

 

And “why me, again?”

Leads to “I’ve had enough! No more! My turn!”

My fantasies are so blood-soaked….

My dreams, asleep and waking, so violent; vile.

 

Everything I think, see, feel, is so violent;

And, my anger, my hate, is awakened;

“BURN IT ALL DOWN! NOW!”

“AND BURN ALL OF ‘EM!”

 

I smile, shake your hand, but that voice, that command,

Means you too;

I may drown in my miasma of despair;

Please take this life-jacket; don’t drown with me.
