When Darkness Prevails

When Darkness Prevails short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

When darkness prevails,
Even our own shadow betrays.
World avails the opportunity,
Criticizing you and questioning your capability.
Unexpected people change their minds,
On asking help, they behave as if blind.
They don’t look into the real matter,
Only spread rumors and chatter.
Breaking and discouraging us,
By this you get more into fuss.
What you need to do
Is stay calm and be true.
Let the world think or say anything about you,
In the back of mind you know who are YOU…

Darkness long poem

And there is the night. Darkness in full bloom. Creatures lurking, looking for food. That is the night, the real fright. The solem wisp of the ever ending fear of nothing, Yet everything. There is the night, the dark, The

When Weaving Stopped

When Weaving Stopped short poem

The grain of wood was nuanced for naked aggression. The groping could not find the plasma. Some non-believers were deemed insane by rust-tainted smiles of shimmering stars. Defiant was the crushed grass after caressing the moon in lonely night. The
