"The Dark"

Darkness looms around me
Waiting; set to pounce
Shadows steal around me
Fear they do pronounce

Tapestries draw inward
Light then filters out
Demons swoop down in toward
A familiar route

Dreams I cannot ponder
Voices take control
Nowhere left to wander
They will have my soul

Chains begin to tighten
Pressure on my heart
I begin to weaken
Memories take part

Enemies are laughing
Malicious and cruel
They continue harping
Whilst I play the fool

Forgive me now, my parent
My mind has blown away
Should I? No, I daren't
Make the monkeys pay

I'll just sit here rocking
With a gentle pace
While they continue stalking,
I will give no chase

WELCOME Wikket...
you gonna love it here...everyone is so supportive and great...AND talented...you will fit right in...this poem is very nice...very good!!!!!!!! take care, janet marie

 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-
remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

This is good! I like it! Welcome to the zcorner Pub, Wikket

Probably only one thing though.. u repeated "..around me" in the first stanza.. and .. well it takes a little of the magic away.. hehe.. I did that in one of my poems too.. repeated "around her".. and, really there are better words, eh Wikket? ^_^ Not to say it is BAD to do that.. of course not..

Anyway, I will read more of your poetry.. I like this..
