An Honest Note

I’m a friend of the dark

where in night I embark.

All that is left now is part

of a dark macabre heart.

I’ll travel twisting roads

even if danger I suppose

does travel as I now go

from the shadow exposed.

I enjoy the same things

I manage to make scenes

in my mind so obscene

my hands must turn clean.

Always looking for ways

to unite my joy my pain

that in rooms I go days

before I lift this glib haze.

I’ll turn to the night easily

for metaphors to please me.

I just want you to believe me

my heart’s not lost completely.

A sphere has two sides I

am both darkness and light.

That as we rotate the night

still plauges that which I fight.

My battle rages in pages

turning themselves amazed

at the discovery emblazed

a heart teaching new ways.

What is this world if there

were no grass to slide down

and elegant streams pooled

as water stays above ground?

My dark aspect may reflect

the content I use for effect

that gives a broken aspect

one day I’ll learn to correct.

    I love this, Jared. There is a quote by Christopher Poindexter that fits with this that I’ll share, because he explains it better than I ever could, but I wholeheartedly agree with both you & him.
    The quote goes:
    “The purpose of life is not just to be happy. The purpose of life my love, is to feel. You must understand that your pain is essential.”

  2. “I’ll turn to the night easily
    For metaphors to please me” is my best wording in this piece. It’s a beauty…and the rhyming…
