Dark Wave
R Bennett Okerstrom

Confused
Dismayed
A dark wave crashes
Across my soul
Awakening something
That has been at rest
 
Abused
Betrayed
Instinct washes
Away the pain
From deep within
Something long repressed

During times of sorrow
During times of joy
Will I wake tomorrow
Set to destroy or
Will I learn to live
Outside the lines
Without confines
Without designs

Without the fears
That followed me
Throughout the years
They called on me
They battered me
And shattered me
Took hold of me
And tattered me

Yet here I stand
To face it now
The dark wave that
Has held me down
To tie me up
And keep me bound
To hold me back
Without a sound

To slowly take
Away my life
To face me in
This bitter strife
But I will win
Yes, in the end
I will win
My life again
And break apart
The darkest wave
And put it in
Itís wretched grave.

"Not a song, but it probably could be the inspiration for one. I have to say that your poetry is very good and I am impressed. Although, I like the metal songs..." -- Steven, San Diego, CA.
"Definitely my favorite poem shared here...the stanza that rules is "During times of sorrow During times of joy Will I wake tomorrow Set to destroy or Will I learn to live Outside the lines Without confines Without designs". It's so powerful and yet has this jazzy rhythm that spins your mind. Are you going to publish soon?" -- mia.
"Publish, publish, publish. If only there were a publisher to go to. I'd rather publish to hardcopy than to an online site. Just waiting for the right situation to do so. Thanks for the kind words Mia. I actually thought this wasn't my best effort when I wrote it last week. Glad you think otherwise." -- R. Bennett.
"This reminds me of "Standing on the Edge of Depression" -imagery of a deep well of emotions and overcoming the negative. The opening stanza is very powerful and I like the tempo and pace. The piece has teeth. I like it more each time I read it." -- Royal D.
"Thanks Royal. Emotion is a very powerful tool. Especially when one can gather it and put it on paper." -- R. Bennett.
