Darkness

Darkness

I’ve always been a child of light
Now nothing but darkness,
Is stalking within my shadows
Leaving me with an unpredictable life
Still…
And always…
Been a leader.
Never been one to follow
But it’s like I can’t even sleep anymore
Because I’m paranoid of what may happen tomorrow
I know I need help
But I keep running as I think I’ll obtain it
And what will my outcome be ?
Praying not death.
I know it’s wrong
But for some reason…
I keep going back to it
The pressure is driving me crazy
What made me look into this lifestyle ?
Frantically watching my back…
Hearing crazed sounds and frightening cry’s
Waking up in cold sweats
Because of deterred dreams
Seeing myself in other people’s shoes
Most…
Not even standing on both feet
My tears are grazing these words as I speak
But that’s not enough to stop my pain
What happened to my mind…
Why did I let it corrupt my peace

  1. This is a very deep honest poem. Just know that whatever it is you are facing, battling, struggling to pull away from God is able to deliver you from it. Seeing that you’ve always been a child of light that tells me that their is hope if you only believe.
    But hey maybe you’re just being deep, after all you did say you don’t just write about your own experiences but others also.

    Question when you say seeing yourself in other’s shoes most not on the ground do you men not living?

  2. A facinatingly frantic read. I write things similar to this at times. It’s like a release valve. Oftentimes the things I write are of things pent up in my soul for a very long time. Excellent job, and I can obviously relate!

  3. I’m glad to read you’re not going through it now, although it’s a place we all pass through from time to time…part of the growing process, I guess. I’m really good at worry and usually find I need to get back in the present moment and trust in God to find my sanity again. Good job, Craig.

  6. I love how you bared yourself and your pain so honestly, that makes for a beautiful and deeply affecting poem. I hope you find your peace again. A while ago I wrote an article on my blog (absurdly long) about how to stop seeking other’s approval it proved therapeutic for me

  10. The last line says a lot. Knowledge is not corruption, it’s a tool. Just keep in mind that a hammer is not a multipurpose tool. smiles…
