Darkness

Your expression is lofty
too lofty to weigh.
There's a bright aura
around you.
A dazzle shone through you
blinds me.
Glimmering pupils in your eyes
add to the light
you pocket in your brain.
Each of your gestures
sets free a brilliance.

You leap, wah, how high
and how so full of jest.
You leap to pounce
the fiery sun to
pull down to your lap.
An innovation
in each of your thought.
An innovation
in your relation to the
blood coursing through the
veins of your body.

You utter words
to command the hurricane.
To tame the cyclone.
You roar to drown
the thunder's voice.

But alas !
You are unnoticed -
the thunderous roar
you make rises out of
an abyss of silence nestled
in your heart.

Alas !
You are blind to the darkness
you carry in the nook of your heart.
Unnoticed by you
it rises to your face
to blacken it
often at the moment
you consider the brightest.

Almaz
This is like a melancholy song..beautifully flowing through the observation and the action of darkness approaching its victim.

I feel dreadfully powerless, as the narrator, being forced to wittness this course of event, uncapable of preventing the outcome.

I get a feeling that the source of inspiration could be the poems by Sylvia Plath..?...
You are bringing a parted feeling, of trust and despair..sealed by these grate images.

For example, you nestled yourself into my heart through these picked parts...

"You leap to pounce
the fiery sun to
pull down to your lap."

"But alas !
You are unnoticed -
the thunderous roar
you make rises out of
an abyss of silence nestled
in your heart."

Wonderfully written!
And..saved it will be:)
