Choke The Stars

.
.
Thick black
Fear Washes
Red over
the stars
Coalescing
Turning
Purple
A million
Dazzling
Pinwheels
Behind
My eyes
Below
Ground
Below oceans
Darkness
Erupting
Swirling
To blackness
Beneath
Movement
All around
Resonates
Roars
Too aware
Too much
Hot
A million
Electric
Fires burn
Each synapse
Arching
I leap
And jig
And dance
And cry
Silent
Until oily
Screams
Ululate
Terror
Chokes
The stars
Chokes
The sky
Starves
Song
There is
Nowhere
Without
Dread
And the
Black fires
Overtake
And I
Succumb
And everywhere
Is
Myself
I am
All memory
Not insane
And there is
No death
And there
Is no
Escape
And there is
No hope
And there is
No eternity
And there is
Nothing

        • Touché. I did not expect kindness hidden in your reprimand. Thank you. {Unless you are being sarcastic?}
          .
          However this also is me.
          .
          How can the shape of ideas be identified without shadow? Can the stars be viewed without the defining darkness?
          .
          I am often the darkness.
          .
          OR
          .
          Perhaps I am just a Wise-Ass Know It All Busy Body 😀
          .
          AND
          .
          Perhaps I am merely The Eccentric Old Lady Hermit That Lives In A Swamp and I ask a lot questions that have only wrong answers 😀

            If ever sarcastic, then only in reply to a vis-à-vis having started first. 🙂 Though being sarcastic is not really beneficial for one’s own soul, I dare say …

            Well, of course you are right and, as we all know, light and dark depend on each other.

            Man’s nature has been ingrained with longing to follow sin, however also been gifted with the appropriate antidote, i.e. the love of the Creator. Thus, I would exchange your note that darkness defines the starts, but that the opposite is true, i.e. without light we would not recognise darkness at all.

            Whereas the same applies to mankind as well. It is the light which defines, and not the other way round.

            You may become darkness as often as you deem it fit, and of course there are valuable lessons to be learned from darkness as well, but my humbleself would always try to represent the absence of light as a lesser cause and not as an originator.

            And being that wise-ass-know-it-all-busy-body or that swamp-residing likable eccentric mature lady hermit as your most probably rightfully are, I doubt you wouldn’t prefer to remain that very steadfast lamp others feel themselves allured to. 🙂

            Wishing you a most happy and rewarding weekend,
            Salva
