    *~The Dark Night of the Soul~*


    Dark20Night - English Poetry Competitions Of Novembar 2010
    Upon a darkened night
    The flame of love was burning in my breast
    And by a lantern bright
    I fled my house while all in quiet rest

    Shrouded by the night
    And by the secret stair I quickly fled
    The veil concealed my eyes
    While all within lay quiet as the dead.

    O, night thou was my guide!
    O, night more loving than the rising sun!
    O, night that joined the Lover to the beloved one!
    Transforming each of them into the other.

    Upon that misty night
    In secrecy beyond such mortal sight
    Without a guide or light
    Than that which burned as deeply in my heart.

    That fire 'twas led me on
    And shone more bright than of the midday sun
    To where He waited still
    It was a place where no one else could come.
    dark night?w600&amph448 - English Poetry Competitions Of Novembar 2010
    Within my pounding heart
    Which kept itself entirely for Him
    He fell into His sleep
    beneath the cedars all my love I gave.

    From o'er the fortress walls
    The wind would brush His hair against His brow
    And with its smoother hand
    caressed my every sense it would allow.
    alone - English Poetry Competitions Of Novembar 2010
    I lost my self to Him And laid my face upon my Lover's breast And care and grief grew dim As in the morning's mist became the light. There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair.

    it was a dark and stormy night

    the rain, relentless in its strength

    the moon had chose to hide

    in the air a morbid stench

    I drove the road away from town

    no other car I saw pass by

    the tears still on my face

    my matted hair hid specks of blood

    to the forest's edge I drove, and

    as the thunder shook my soul

    I took the rolled up carpet

    from my trunk and I walked slow

    to a spot between two trees

    I clawed and dug a hole where

    I placed the rug and covered it

    with dirt and leaves so wet

    I sped away determined

    that I would not forget, the years

    of torment at his hands

    to where it has brought me now

    on this dark and stormy night

    In visions of the dark night
    I have dreamed of joy departed,
    But a waking dream of life and light
    Hath left me broken-hearted.

    Ah! what is not a dream by day
    To him whose eyes are cast
    On things around him with a ray
    Turned back upon the past?

    That holy dream -that holy dream,
    While all the world were chiding,
    Hath cheered me as a lovely beam
    A lonely spirit guiding.

    What though that light, thro' storm and night,
    So trembled from afar,
    What could there be more purely bright
    In Truth's day-star.

    In a dark night, when the light
    burning was the burning of love (fortuitous
    night, fated, free,--)
    as I stole from my dark house, dark
    house that was silent, grave, sleeping,--

    by the staircase that was secret, hidden,
    safe: disguised by darkness (fortuitous
    night, fated, free,--)
    by darkness and by cunning, dark
    house that was silent, grave, sleeping--;

    in that sweet night, secret, seen by
    no one and seeing
    nothing, my only light or
    guide
    the burning in my burning heart,

    night was the guide
    to the place where he for whom I
    waited, whom I had long ago chosen,
    waits: night
    brighter than noon, in which none can see--;

    night was the guide
    sweeter than the sun raw at
    dawn, for there the burning bridegroom is
    bride
    and he who chose at last is chosen.


    *

    As he lay sleeping on my sleepless
    breast, kept from the beginning for him
    alone, lying on the gift I gave
    as the restless
    fragrant cedars moved the restless winds,--

    winds from the circling parapet circling
    us as I lay there touching and lifting his hair,--
    with his sovereign hand, he
    wounded my neck-
    and my senses, when they touched that, touched nothing...

    In a dark night (there where I
    lost myself,--) as I leaned to rest
    in his smooth white breast, everything
    ceased
    and left me, forgotten in the grave of forgotten lilies.

    Dark dark night storm over me
    Dark night is a holy blur
    Dark dark night stop taunting me
    Dark night and I think of her
    Dark dark night I'm so lonely
    Dark night why leave in me such a mess
    Dark dark night I feel so much
    Dark night filled with nothingness
    Dark dark night please please
    Bring the light

    One dark night


    One dark night she ran away
    Over the hills, she didn't want to stay
    She ran from the pain, from the tears in her heart
    The tears that she cried because her love fell apart

    An impossible love, but she could not accept.
    Now she is drowning in the dark pool of death.
    Swimming and crying but there is no other side
    She's looking and searching for someone to be her guide

    Drowning and praying for some kind of cure
    She keeps thinking about the one that once loved her
    But he's far away and will never know
    And she'll never tell, 'cause she's afraid to show

    She falls asleep in the arms of Death, with His silent kiss
    he takes her final breath.
    Now she's in heaven, but she still remembers the pain
    The pain that left a scar on her soul, that
    one dark night in the rain

    The Dark Knight

    The sound of drums carried on the winds
    as the Keep prepared for battle. The time
    had come now, as Kingdoms would fall
    only to rise once more with new tyrants
    to rule.

    Knights, clad in armour, would ride tall
    into battle. Blood would spill, all in the
    name of honour to the various thrones,
    scattered, combative.

    The hearts of maidens shall be won, heaving
    breasts shall blush from faintest kiss as Death
    sweeps in, scythe in hand.

    Queens with birth heirs to carry on these
    wars of blood and name until one shall come,
    and with his blade, lay them all to shame.



    He shall ride in strong, black steed, black
    armour, sword at the ready. Battle cry
    piercing, the drums shall drown when he
    calls out!

    Maidens will sweep crystal tears at his feet,
    beg for mercy beneath the stare of his cold
    coal coloured eyes. Yet, give into his suave
    and debonair smile, present themselves in
    most perfect fashion as he woos each of them.

    The Dark Night..!!


    a dark rose growing from a dark
    concrete crevice of
    this deserted building
    on a dark night
    spreading its dark petals
    for dark dreams


    on a fine morning
    when darkness
    is gone
    the dark rose
    comes out in the open
    to meet the sun
    embracing it
    with so much light
    turning into something
    sort of a blood reddish
    colored rose
    something like
    glowing

    but still dark
    like the one last night
    ...
