When Darkness Comes

Picture by Anne Stokes

Poem Written By Anita Magdalena....

When Darkness Comes

---------------


An ever grated edge breaks apart in the end
When darkness comes and nothing will mend
As fear travels through the rumbling cloud
The strike of blue light the collision so loud

The fool and the thoughtless
The callous and the weak
With half opened eyes quite often will speak
Unaware when the darkness comes
The strike of blue light as their body numbs

When there is no reason there is always a way
To cast down the shadows on the mindless at play
A touch of the darkness turns everything black
Once it has settled there is no taking back

An ever grated edge breaks apart in the end
When darkness comes and nothing will mend
As fear travels through the rumbling cloud
The strike of blue light the collision so loud

  4. I'm left wondering what the blue light is. I'm thinking maybe lightning? Or something non-physical? The other posters are interpreting this poem as depression, which if it is, then the blue light might be suicide? Sorry to ask these questions, I just like figuring things out. :D

  5. Hi Matt, don't be sorry about asking.

    Ok, the blue light and collision so loud is thunder and ligthening brought on with the energy of anger. The poem has nothing to do with depression, but I do like people to have their own interpretation.
    Think on the lines of dark mythology Witchcraft and such when reading.

    Thank you all.

    Anita.

  6. Thank you for clearing that up. It changes the meaning when you add in the fury of a witch. :D
