Darkest Thoughts


Rusty Broadspear

You can draw the blinds across your minds

But darkest thoughts thread their way back through the cracks.

You can banish them to some subconscious island

But they have a way of swimming back.

Unwelcome friends by candlelight

You can chase them into the night

Out of mind and out of sight

But your darkest thoughts put up a fight.

They bite back like slippery snakes 

Then disappear from your vision 

They tell you stories you don't want to hear

But have a way of forcing you to listen.

Your darkest thoughts project images of horror

Of what will visit tomorrow,

And have their say about yesterday,

Filling your heart with sorrow.
