I do this once in a while...okay, maybe more often now...

Okay people, today, I'm feeling some dark vibes. So, in giving into my mood, I post here two poems I wrote some while back.

Truth be told, I love the darkness.

Seriously...I walk into a public place and instinctively go to the corner that has my back to the wall and my eyes on everyone else.

My girlfriend says I walk 'by the wall' (whatever that means).

I have a knack of looking for the crack in every armour, cos I have this view that we all speak from the point of our bias, but try to put up a pious outlook. Then again, Lauryn Hill said "Everyday, people lie to God, so what makes you think that they won't lie to you too?" Just saying.

I've found out that life is as much dark as it is bright, and that most times, they compliment each other. None is more useful or beneficial than the other.

Embrace the light people, but respect the dark.

Ok...I'm rambling.


Night has come
As quick as morn
But there’s no need to mourn.
For the evening sun
Is a shining star
To him who’s life’s begun.

So dry your eyes
Tis all but lies
That which this life denies.
These gloomy skies
Shall shine as day
A blessing in disguise.

The traveller.
When the reaper comes
When his cold feet clop
On the rough, stony floor
Which I lay upon
And demands I follow
Though he grin at me
Let your heart not fear
Be not in sorrow
When his fingers slide
In a cold caress
Around this limp canvas
Below my watery eyes
Be not dismayed
For I have been ready
When the reaper comes
Tell him I’ve been waiting.

I'm more light than dark, normally. Of late though I have been enjoying the dark side. It doesn't ask much of you.

Great poems.

You've done darker though, I'm sure.

I like the traveller (there's a typo in the last line but one) very dark and vivid at the same time. Echoes my sentiments exactly.

Your poems get better and better and fresher....nice one muse!

@CaramelD: Now you'll have to tell me the story of your dark escapades.

@Myne: Thanks...sorted out the typo issue. I hope those sentiments don't become too strong though.

@Nonye: Thanks a lot madam!

Mood swings ay.......Ndo.

I'm so dark it's not even funny.
I feel some sort of peace there (how ironic, right?)

Don't fear the reaper!

CaramelD said...

Not escapades as such. It's just a state of mind....

I'd say I know dark, but I got a silver lining vibe from your poems.

Like The Reaper best.
