Poem #20
Light Blitz

light the night
light my fire
fire of passion
fire of hell

hell hath no fury
hell hath no remorse
remorse for what's said
remorse for what's done

done to death
done and gone
gone like yesterday
gone in a flash

flash and dash
flash of light
light the way
light the night

night without dreams
night without end
end of the world
end of everything

everything ends
everything dies
dies like your love
dies like my dreams

dreams of yesterday
dreams of tomorrow
tomorrow never comes
tomorrow comes too soon

soon the sun rises
soon the night falls
falls from the heavens
falls to its death

death is the end
death is the beginning
beginning of a new chapter
beginning of a new tale

tale whispered in darkness
tale too ticklish to tell
tell me a lie
tell me the truth

truth is subjective
truth will set you free
free falling
free to run

run from the past
run from the pain
pain holds on forever
pain colors all



  1. The second today. Pain does indeed colour all. For ever and ever.

  2. Hello again Real Cie. Loved the poem. How do I vote ?
    You have my vote.

  3. I like the first one not better or best as both are appealing.
    But because I can often feel the opposite about a person, idea or thing. And sometimes in between.

    1. I think the first one has a more "fun" feel. But it's the second that got the votes today. Thanks for voting!
