Alone in the dark

sitting in the dark
darkest of dawn
dawning on a new warm way
wayward and carefree
free to think upon the ever reaching and all knowing eve
eve of destruction in my path
pathway to my new direction in life
life on the unknown road to salvation through hate and love both
both intertwined and never without the other
other pathways rise before me
me, and me alone, have to make this choiceof my life
life spent alone or with a person at my side
sidetracks come and make me think of another thought
thoughts of money and sin
sin of my heart, not of the brain
brainwaves not stopping to my dismay and tears
tears streaming down my face and cheeks in the dark
darkness envelopes me and brings me back to thoughts of others
others i wish to speak with and be true to
two people walking forward as one
one path, forward in time, never ceasing til the next
next chapter of my life that crosses paths with another
another person to use, not abuse but use in my life
life that ceases til she comes back
backwards in time, to the time of my past
past emotions and words of love
loving arms with no thoughts of ill contempt
tempting me to be whole again, and look within
within before i make the mistake again
again i say, not to burden her so now
now i must build upon me and me alone
alone in the dark

Alone in the dark

Artist's Description

I woke up and saw the poetry forming one line
from the last word in the last line
and beginning with it
to form the next
