This was inspired by my Indian upbringing.. We were taught that angels and demons walk between this life and the afterlife. and that we had the ability to see both.

Happy Halloween!!



She is in the


darkness.


A child reaching


for light.


Her soul to young


to pray..


To young


to say..


Babies afraid


of the dark.


She doesn't need much..


Just a pinhole


of a spark.


A distant star


in the galaxy...


Just enough light


to keep


the demons away


They lurk in the


darkest shadows..


Waiting..


To take her back.


Back to the hell


from whence she came.


She was not meant


to be born.


So they wait


in prey..


Waiting for the


stars to fade..


These demons


are apart of her..


She apart of them.


They are siblings


from another life..


Of


Emptiness..


Darkness..


Emotionalist


Nothingness


They do not know of..


love


life


hurt


shame


They know nothing


of these earthly gains..


For there is


Heavenly light


Even in pain.


Every emotion sparks


something unseen..


Ahh, but these demons


will not let her be..


The star is fading..


The darkness comes..


She knows she is


not alone..


She feels their demonic


urgency growing.


As they wait


to take her home.


She knows it is useless


to fight.


Because darkness


will always


overcome the light.

Very dark (no pun intended). Great fare for Hallow's Eve, though. Gave me a chill. Hope your star always shines, Jim.

Erica, very dark poem. The mind is a very funny tool and can become an extremely powerful weapon.
Reviewed by Jeff Mason
Had to read it about three times. Some very enthralling imagery
and metaphors. We all have our own demons; demons we must fight,
and yet demons to which we must sometimes surrender. And... demons
aren't always all bad. :) Nice picture to go along with the poem.
I'm also part Native American (part Cherokee).

Great dive into the dark thoughts. ....sorry I just have to say it....Light does and always will overcome darkness.
