Beats of a Mourning Drum. (Short Poem)


Like each breath, inching closer to the chasm
that knows not mercy,
I am stepping on your soul,
with a mourning drum,
playing the tune of sorrow, of grief.

I am nurtured by your ignorance
I am everything you fear from,
You cannot escape…
Ye cannot slay…
I reign over you…
I leave you lifeless…
I am your darker side…

  1. Our darker sides exists and I think that is most intriguing yet deadly side to us. I fear that it may soon take over every one. There is too much violence in this world at the moment. 😞
