Poet Lady Katz (new forum post): Darkness

Poetry Talk

New post from m_uzair_ans


I lit a candle in the unending void,

It's glow searing the cold darkness;

Eyes wide, lips curled into a smile,

After long had I been this overjoyed.


Came a squall of wind and sand,

And the flame began to falter;

Worry creeping upon my face,

I shielded the blaze with my hand.


Rumbled and roared the mighty gust,

I tried my best to shelter the light;

But destiny sought something loathsome,

As the flame died of fate unjust.


Fear of the imminent growing larger,

I foolishly hoped for the impossible;

The darkness did return inevitably,

Only this time it appeared darker.
