If only you knew….

Category: Poetry



“Hello, darkness

I know you’re still there


You would’ve left

A long time ago

If only you knew

How much pleasure

My soul finds in watching

The sprinkles of your

Pitch black water

Battling with the flames

Of my stubborn fires


If only you knew

How much I love

To watch myself win

Every time with grace

In this little war with you.


Yes, you’re still there

But guess what?

So am I”
