Private Darkness


When the dense oily shadow descends on me
I can find no escape, no comfort
The blossom of hope is snatched away visciously
And my heart bleeds fear

The shadow suffocates my light and steals my dreams
Wringing every drop of hope and pleasure from life
An impossible weight drags and buries all energy
So far beneath memory, it might never have been

I try to flee when i feel its ominous presence
But there is no hiding place
Fear grips me and freezes me to await
Inevitable annihalation of my will

There is no escape no sanctuary
The womb that once protected me has gone
So i curl my body foetally anyway
and wait .................

Such innocence expressed through your womb imagery. So true and relative to the bad experiences and psychological needs in life.
