This amusing little ditty demanded expression during my lunch break. It probably still needs a little tweaking, but what the heck!

The Dark

I lurk inside the happy child

I am the dark

My shadow stains the glowing bride

And plants miscarriage deep inside

I am the dark


I rend the infant in the womb

I am the dark

My hate aborts the unborn child

In savage pain and fury wild

I am the dark


I strangle hope in the desperate cripple

I am the dark

I spread foul poison in his mind

No hope of joy I leave behind

I am the dark


I hover o’er the starving child

I am the dark

I breathe my spite upon the corn

And curse to hunger those unborn

I am the dark


I dance around the helpless child

I am the dark

I guide the rapists’ hand and heart

As innocence is torn apart

I am the dark


I steal the future of mankind

I am death

All living things to me must bend

Yet I am not my brother’s friend

I am death

My hand all suffering must end

I am death

The murdered child, the hungry poor

Lay down their burdens at my door

I am death

I am the beacon of un-hope

I am death

To me beyond the brazen door

Come soon all born, both rich and poor

I am death

I am the futile scream of love

I am light

I fight the power of entropy

All living things arise from me

I am light

I am the mocking power of hope

I am light

I flare and die and pass away

Like clouds upon an autumn day

I am light
We are one

The Janus face of life and death

Of health and joy and final breath

Are born of us the three in one

We are your God.

Good poem Keith. However, I would NOT want to accept Lily's invitation to the dark side.

Praise the name if Jesus and all the darkness goes away!

Peace, love and Christ Blessings,

John Michael

Come to the dark side!

All aside you touch a part that resides sometimes minorly and majorly within all. Thoughts rendered and perceptions of what could be in the darkness of thought. Like Fee yes this sounds almost to me religious in another realm.

Interesting write Keith Rowley, I will read it again.

Love and Light

If you can create this universe during your 'lunch break', what might you make during your 'dinner hour"? Unique configuration of words so effectively rewiring thought. Transfixing concepts with abyss-deep reach. Keep writing !! ~~ Diana

Quite sinister… Reminds me very much of religion.

I just wonder what if you had a long extended meal, would come out of such depths of thought. Blessings!

WOW...i'msaving this to reread afew times...hardly a 'little ditty' keith...there's a lot of depth here and room to ramble around in the dark...enjoyed this one...think my brow is still furrowed...pmedlin
Reviewed by Felix Perry
An interesting write that brings to mind religions version of the the holy trinity, father son and the holy spirit....perhaps there is an analogy that can be made there. Something to think about. God the father (darkness or light, God the son (life or death)and the Holy Spirit (light).
