In the Heart of Darkness

Poem | Duration: 55 Seconds

In the heart of Darkness, I see you,

a dark too Dark to travel through.

The pain that’s there is coming ‘round,

why oh why do you forsake me now?

I often wonder what could have been

had the world not ceased to spin.

Pointless thoughts that hurt in the end,

since no other outcome had fate determined.

You and me are one in the same, 

tear-ridden souls on a hopeless plain.

So guide me now to that crystal light,

its saving grace provides me sight.

Thoughts filtered by emerald green,

nothing is ever what it seems.

Destined to an existence never free,

in the heart of Darkness, do you see me?

If you’re a fan of horror comedy, then make sure to check out my ongoing short story titled ‘Crocodilian’. Elevator pitch: A young cartographer seeking fame strikes a deal to travel to a swamp town in order to determine whether or not their desperate pleas for rescue from a giant crocodile is true… which, of course it is. ;) Find chapter one right here!
