Alone in the Dark, A Poem
by: The Raven King


Do not leave me in the dark,
for I am so afraid.

The grinning skulls with their empty eyes,
stare blankly into mine.

And all around the spirits stir,
and gently sigh my name.

They blew out the lamps,
and said good all,
and left me here in the dark.


In the damp I sit.


'Til morning comes.


'Til end of time, for that is what I am.




I cry from the depths of this cell that holds me.

In the blackness I clutch my heart, and weep.

Weep for all that is gone.

All that is lost.

All that I will never see again.

The warmth of the sun.

The smell of the new fallen rain upon the bare earth.

The sight of lightning illuminating the sky.

The sound of the trees as the wind tosses them to and fro.

All this I have lost.

All there is now is darkness.

And I.



But am I?

For I can hear the spirits.

The souls of those who have passed before me.

And when I hear this I smile.

Though I may be alone in the dark.

For I know that when I join them, I can rejoice in their company.

But for now I am lost.




And will be until the day,

I leave this mortal toil.

And ascend into light.

"Til then I am here.
