Darkness descending,
deepening black;
a storm is coming
there’s no turning back.
This war I’m waging,
bitter and hollow;
my soul is raging
still this path I follow.
This fire consuming
burning and cold
blood in veins boiling
the anger takes hold.
Shadow unfolding,
night closing in,
the heart is now burning
cloaked in my sin.
Iron I’m tasting,
my longing is deep,
the beast I am freeing
from secrets I keep.
I am a creature,
a child of fire,
to bathe in the darkness,
my only desire.

  1. It is beautifully dark but I couldn’t help laughing at your ugh, it was almost sweet in a way and contradictory to the poem itself if I heard it in my head correctly 🙂

  2. About a month ago I received The One Lovely Blog Award from Kathy at I was ill and had just received the Compassionate Communicator Award from Kevin at so am only now getting to thanking Kathy, a courageous writer and new friend and passing it on.

    Here are the rules:

    1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

    2. List seven random things about yourself.

    3. Nominate other bloggers for the award.
