The Following are Poems to be found in the soon to be released book
Pitch Darke: the Poetic Chronicles of Damien Darke
Tattered and bruised
I lay beaten and bloodied,
Breathing is difficult,
Towards the heavens I cast my eyes
Seeking and pleading,
My heart barely beats
My mind going in a thousand
A torn soul
Seeking serenity in a crazy world,
Only to find solitude,
Aching for love
Only washed down in pain,
Deserving more than I can afford
For I’ve a worthless soul.
Beaten and downtrodden
My hurt can’t be explained,
I’ve walked a lone for so long
My darkness is my best friend,
The tears I cry
No one to hear my woes,
Prayers and pleadingPlease fill this torn soul.
The night skies call to me
Whispers upon silken winds
Songs through trees leaves
As I sit out staring…
The stars are bright tonight
The night is so calming
I wonder where you are tonight
And if you’re thinking of me…
My thoughts of you they fill me
My thoughts of you they run wild
I can’t but wonder if you’re thinking of me
I wonder what you’re thinking right now…
My mind’s a whirl
It falls briefly a focus in the sky
Streaking with its tail to follow
As it falls …
If I wish upon a star
Are you wishing upon the same star?
Do you see it as I do?
Are you thinking of me as I of you?
Lonely my nights as I sit alone
Wishing yet knowing it does no good
Our world though small our worlds are so far
Another night without my love.
Falling star floating there
For my eyes only
Blinking bright until you flash outAnd here again I am again… left alone.
The dreams they’ve come, Lord
Through the pains of the headaches
My mind they bend.
I can hear the screeching and clawing
and the blood I do smell,
My welcome back, a trip through
My own personal Hell.
I try to cry out as the claws
breech my flesh,
Angels and demons pulling me asunder,
is this but one more test?
How shall I favor, Lord, this
I do not know;
I scream out as the pain in
My head continues to grow,
And as the lights behind my eyes,
continue to brighten,
Do I welcome this pain, or am I
to be truly frightened?
Can I conquer this pain even as
I’m being pulled apart?
Does a man truly exist on the strength of his brain
or the content of his heart?
I have no answers, Oh Lord,
for this pain is upon me,
Driving my dreams as if it were
a movie for me to see,
Pushing this pen as if to describe
all before my eyes,
The strangeness I see and feel
as the pain is realized.
Relinquish your fight, oh demons,
and from Darke let there be day,
Let this headache cease to be,
Oh this I do pray.
Let it end I beg and end
this torment to thee, oh Lord, I beseech,
And from the darkness of the pain into
the glory of the I light I shall someday breech.
In your eyes
In your eyes I can see my light,
Nestled there beckoning me from the dark,
Yearning for you, your touch pulling me from my plight,
Our soul intertwined, two now beat as one heart.
Underlying passions alight with sweet intentions,
Recalling again the feelings of your desires,
Embarking on a journey of heavenly sensations,
Yes, my love, you have me engulfed in your fires.
Ecstasies emblazoned as I hold you close to me,
Savoring our love for the entire world to see.
I've seen you
