31 – Drawn Through Darkness

Poem number 31
.
Drawn Through Darkness
.
The darkness drags you through the seams
Of normal life through shattered dreams
And nightmares from a different age
More primal, violent, full of rage
The midnight streets drip ragged malice
Homeless in a cardboard palace
Dealers push to earn their corn
Pockmarked ladies, real life porn
For fifty quid the world is yours
Inhaled through atavistic pores
How easy now to fall from grace
This darkness is another place
To yield is easy, simple sin
To weaken senses, just give in
But then the wolves arrive in packs
Too late, my friend, to hide your tracks
The fallen, tempted, easy prey
The boots kick out, the world goes grey.
