Shadow Sun

And in that very moment, I knew it was already too late
My   vision   has   adjusted
The memories of my former life all just slipped away
My   light   has   faded

The last of the fallen sparks fluttered in the distance
My   hope   has   been   obliterated
The shadows rose to claim their long awaited radiance
My   destiny   was    always   fated
In my heart, I lost it all
To this very second, it's still my fault

In my body, I have been tainted
From all of the damage I sustained

In my mind, I felt everything snap
I smiled as all of the colors turned black

In my soul, I had to let it all go
Cradled by the darkness is all I will ever know

In my eyes, I felt them darken
It's all on me, because I'm the one who let it happen

In my tears, leave a trail of corruption
I have stained my face beyond recognition

In my blood, courses the aggression
I abandoned myself after I was forsaken

In my dreams, are the nightmares of tomorrow
I should have known that I was going to fall into sorrow
And in that very moment, I felt the last of my faith dissipate
My   whole   world   has   changed
I lay siege to all of the emotions that filled me with blame
My   star   died   in   vain

Infinite arms of blackness fell into place
My   time   has   come
I will let the darkness finally engulf me
My   shining   shadow   sun
Hail to the shadow sun
The ending to my agony has begun

Amazing. Very well written. I do believe many people have had this sort of thing happen in their lives.

I guess it's something that hardly anyone can avoid, at least once in their lifetime. I just wish not all of us would have to go through it.
I'm glad you liked it though. Thank you

Very, very nice and detailed. With a lot of vision and depth. I like how "listed" poetically all the places you could feel with. It's just great. Much, MUCH better, light years away from all the so-called poems that get spread like a plague and somehow reach the top listed. Great job, mate!

Thank you so much for your supportive words, it means a lot. I am really, really glad that people liked this one. I was also kind of sketchy about the format, but with you saying that, I take it back. I'm humbled by your compliment. Thanks again. :D

Reminds me of a time in my life. And if you can imagine the opposite of what you wrote - that's what happened after. :)
It would probably sound strange to you, but it was because of Jesus. And He still sustains it and gives me an unshakeable hope. :)

Well, that is good for you :) I'm so glad that you made it through something similar to this, because not many do.
I hope you liked it. And thank you. :D

Yeah, as a poem it's really good :) You really nailed the state/condition of such situations and the emotions with it. :) Reminds me of some symbolists in literature. They're really good in that too. Actually they're the best maybe :D
