The Girl From The Darkside


Thunder gurgled and the rain splattered;
People, animals, birds, all cowered,
Even the moon, was nowhere to be seen.
And there, in the darkness, she gleamed.
Unafraid she trotted through the darkest night,
Thunderstorm welcomed her with all his might.
“Oh you little frail girl, come back home and hide,”
Wise words were passed by the wizards of light.
“Darkness is not something that you cherish,
Rain makes you sick, better stay nourished.”
They tried keeping her safe and sound,
In the Kingdom of light, she felt bound. 
They used their arrows and their swords,
Anything to keep her from the dark world. 
But each  slash on her skin, each streak of blood,
She enjoyed them all, viscous crimson she adored.
Finally, she escaped to the realm of darkness,
She shed her mask and her clothes.
It’s in the light, where she had to hide,
In the darkness, there is no one to witness.
Hailstones and thunderstorms, all things dark rejoiced,
And the moon slowly waned and went back to hide.
The creatures of light, couldn’t believe their eyes,
They asked, “Who’s that girl? Is she gonna die?”
She heard all the whispers, and she simply smiled.
She was a girl born on the rainiest no moon night.
When the moon hid and heaven cried,
That’s when she first opened her eyes.

  3. I loved the dark elements of the poem, specifically. Quite enticing.
    The last few lines felt like the night I was born on. On the rainiest day of August that too, a new moon night.

    1. Sure! However, I won’t be much active for a few weeks or even months. I’ve reduced posting too. So sorry. But I’ll definitely check it out. Loads of love to you. Keep writing. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  4. If you fall into the sky
    In the middle of the night
    What would catch your fall?
    The darkness?
    Or the light?

      1. Lol!!!! Your poem kind of inspired that…. but there you go taking a step further lol!

      2. You’re welcome!

        I won’t keep you. I could keep on reading and talking all day.

      3. I used to do that a few months ago. Idk, what happened after that. Kinda miss the more energetic and productive version of me . 🙈

      4. We all get a little burnt out every now and then. I definitely feel burnt out. I just stick around and read blogs (how I found your’s) I like meeting people and encouraging those who have a knack for writing.

      5. It’s not that I don’t write these days. I do. But I really don’t find anything worth posting. And sometimes I start a piece and never complete.
        Thank you so much for sharing what you do when you feel burnt out. I really needed it. ♥️♥️

      6. It’s coming understood!

        What helps me is reading random blogs. Ordinary people have awesome testimonies. And there’s some pretty influential writers out there.

        I’m sorry if I’m holding you up or bothering you.
