A Collection of Dark Poetry about Life

Smoking lonely man

The Big Fight

Just last night
a shadow
called my name
I looked back and grinned
walked away
he yelled; you coward!
I ran towards him
threw a left hook
blood sprawled
he countered
an uppercut to my chin
I was knocked-out
next thing I knew
I woke up
lying on the cold floor
cuts on my knuckles
I stood up
on the shattered mirror
was my distorted reflection
only then I realized
the shadow I fought
was myself all along

Cave of Dead Dreams

Narrow path, a dark place
Pitch black, only echoes
Sound of water drops

Thin air poisons sanity
Smell of decay below
Aroma of death

Absence of light
Deafening silence
Absolute isolation

Tears of failure
Blend with thick water
Bottomless pond

Destination for the resigned
One way ticket
Where dreams are buried


rivers of contentment
stop from flowing
to the sea
sea of serenity
turning into desert
desert of desolation
as the sun mocks
every bit of clouds
that carry the drops
drops of sustenance
soon the trees
will succumb
and forever be gone
sheds they provide
shall no longer
appease wandering souls


I no longer fight
I cannot smile
Too depressed
I no longer dream
Only nightmares
I can no longer love
Full of anger
I am drowning fast
In the sea of misery
I lost my way
Dark alley of the past
No one can save me
The weight is too heavy
Just let it be
All I ask
Remember me when,
I was still myself

Threading Faith

Whispers of anonymity
Along the valley of strangers
Silence so unholy
Roaring lies, shadowing
A river of deception cruising
Beyond the cliff....
Cliff of self annihilation

Never ending tunnel
Only vivid,
Lurking darkness

Desperate chants
Dimming faith echoes
Nothingness is creeping
Escape just a string,
A string of make believe
Forever trapped, chained
Alone, dreary and dying

A Shot of Tranquilizer

Stupidity as it may be, trying to race with the time.
Restlessness overpowers even the most logical mind.

Animosity so overwhelming, even heartbeat begins to falter.
Uncertainty blankets even the perfect vision.

Sincerity so scarce, even your close friend tends to lie.
Hypocrisy clouds even the best intention.

Insanity so near, even the counsel refuse to say
As the door to an alternate reality begin to unlock.

Hopes vanishing, desires begin to melt as the hand loses its grip.
Faith begins to disintegrate.

A shot of tranquilizer I beg, the sufferings will ease
As I’ll be able to sleep in peaceful misery.

Chained Freedom

You can breathe
But don't make it long
You can Cheat
Better never prolong

Play the game
But never winning
Who to blame
When you're whining

Rock may roll
'neath your bare feet
Pleasure crawl
Happiness never meant

All alone cry
Regrets flashing fast
Tears never dry
Heart and mind clash

Feather so light
Yet you're not flying
Earned not flight
Forever ashamed laying

Drag to pit
Soul never returning
Under six feet
You are never fleeing

Sometimes acknowledging how you truly feels, no matter how dark your current emotion is better than pretending to be OK and everything is going well. Life is a constant battle and a mix of good days and some bad days. Learn from the the dark days and cherish sunny ones.
