“Take me, back from the darkness where they sent me”…

~

In a dream within a dream…

Where nothing’s as it seems…

The angels watch and scream…

Then turn their back…

On what plays out before them…

The drama that unfolds…

In a way that blinds their eyes…

And leaves scorch marks on their souls…

A dream where no one can know…

Where cruel realities collide…

Where danger and demons hide…

And only the toughest survive…

An all out attack…

From out of the Black…

And from within the abyss…

Where a blink would miss…

And the winged queen may dismiss…

A plea from the heart…

That was doomed from the very start…

And begin where she ends…

Where lightning strikes and bends…

The strands of time…

And one by one, in a line…

The crawling sinner’s fucked up crime…

Is judged and condemned…

By a system that controls…

Owns all of the souls…

That weep and fly around…

Screaming, yet not making a sound…

Deep underneath the ground…

In this version of Hell…

Where voiceless demons tell…

And hopeless victims sell…

Themselves…

And all that they own…

In the hope that forgiveness is shown…

Within this dream that’s grown…

Into the next…

Leaving your head so vexed…

It’s all so fucking complex…

And so complicated…

The Devil should have waited…

Instead he fucking created…

The lost…

Left counting the cost…

In a winter field of frost…

With wires severely crossed…

In this dream within a dream…

Where nothing was what it seemed…

  1. Eye will cry! Eyes will be like streams of blood when you watch yourself in a mirror. Darkness is part of human beings, creatures who have been looking for the glorious source of true light. Your poem not only impressed me but inspired me for my next poems and writings. I’m Robert Ahanes, the author of two poetry books, Sinister Witnesses and Goddess In The Silence. And both books are full of poems like yours but with a different style. I’ll be glad to read more of your poems.

    • Thanks Robert – I am humbled by your words – did you self publish or are you working with a publisher – I would like to do something along these lines with my work, but not sure where to start, so any tis you can give would be welcome – Cheers J

      • Thank you for your comment. Yes. I self-published Sinister Witnesses and Goddess In The Silence books. There are 4 tips for you to become a published author and poet:
        1. Finish what you write, edit, organize and proofread it.
        2. Find the website, service or service package that fits. You don’t need to spend $10000 for your book.
        3. Be consistant to be able to share your words with thousands of people in the world.
        4. Love what you write. This is the “King” of all writing tips.
        Feel free to ask me questions and sign up for my free newsletters full of tips and resource of real-life experiences I have had with writing.
