After the week I put in, I can honestly say I need a drink! And we’re not talking strawberry wine…so as the awesome Claudia takes the stage to host at the pub this evening, I have every intention of hiding in my dark corner with my spirit of choice (no pun intended) and losing myself in the fantastic poetry that is becoming the mainstay of OpenLinkNight. Today I’m offering up a fun, rhyming little write…because that’s what I do best after spending way too much time in the real world! 😉 Poets! Welcome to dVerse! Let’s have a read, shall we?
The Darker Me
Upon this heart where demons dance
Where magic holds your soul entranced
Within the darkness that is me
Swallowed by my mystery
A foolish girl, you took me for
But that, my love, will be no more
For it is you I seek today
Where I can let my demons play.
Don’t turn away, you wanted this
I heard your whisper, granted your wish
I showed you the “me” I like to hide
There’s good reason she stays locked up inside.
But doubt you did, did not believe
And together we will surely grieve
You can’t take back what used to be
Now that you’ve seen this side of me.
So share my poison, share my pain
I promise you it won’t be in vain
For this is me, no lies, just truth
Witness these scars I wear as proof
That I’m not normal, I’m not quite right
I embrace monsters, I hide from light
No matter now, I’ve set her free
Welcome to the darker me.
