Alone In The Dark

Alone in my pain and agony
I lay depress and hollow
Back to normal again
Feelings gone once more
Back to being cold and heartless
Bitch at anyone, kill anyone
Doesn’t matter who you are
I'll kill, I'll hurt
As long as there’s revenge
I'll be fine
Alone in my corner
The darkness comes back
I am here again

Darkness descended all around
You vanished out of sight
The storm of life surrounded me
This was my blackest night.

Sad and lonely ~ no-one to care,
The gales tore me apart.
Driving rain shattered my soul
And weary was my heart.

And then I saw at break of day
A sunny glade of gold...
My broken heart was glad again
So joyful was my soul.

For you were there, smiling at me
With arms of love caressing me.

Into that darkness
I would...oh...so gladly go
with you beside me

This is among my favorite poems of Lindsay. I wonder if music was really what he was hungry for. I'll admit that music is paired affectively w/ sex in this poem. But I do understand the hunger for melody- and that melody should only be exposed a little at a time- a sort of strip tease for the ear. ah oh well.
