Always in Darkness

Always in darkness, may we reap our sorrow
Where bitterness' clutches tighten
Breaking hearts, healing over in thread bare scabs
Throbbing in spite when memories surface
To make us remember what we wished not to know
Creeping, sliding, crying
Always in darkness

In darkness, wolves howl with mighty, eerie croons
Matching the moans of ghosts fading in and out again
Out of our lips, eyes, minds and hearts
Seeping through the roads and valleys
To chase away children, wanderers, and send shivers down spines
Knowing that the evil shall lurk
Always in darkness

But there is a better side of things we know
Hiding from the darkness' embrace of the unknown
For what better way to smile in the sun's warmth
Than to run in sunshine after winter's black bite?
I know of no greater peace, contentment and dream
That to know that I will never be able to see anything
Like stars
Had they not been
Always in Darkness


And you're a star too, just_another_fe.     I know this wasn't exactly the best of poems to give anyone hope, but what better way to have that hope than to look up, into the deep, dark, enigmatic, magical night, and see a star twinkle and wink back at you?  Wish upon a shooting star.

~Astraea


 "Sometimes stars can only be seen in darkness."

"Sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier things."

Very thoughtful poem and so well done
Thank you

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
