I'm Losing the Light

Anger raged

Leaving me ragged and broken high upon another lonely shore

Madness afire

Cruel words conspire from my open mouth

Blazing crazed vile obscenities

Washed away in a rain of tears I extinguished love

True true love

I gave up the fight

It’s growing darker now

I’m afraid I’m losing the light

Vomiting self-loathing into this ever night of despair

I’m losing the light

I’m losing the light

Where then in this cold edge of eternity lies the road to Hell?

The light has gone

You are wearing your father's belt again, methinks Gus. powerful stuff. The word 'lays' does not lie easy here: 'lies' better, more grammatical? Unless it is a reference to some sordid act?

Thank you Isobel and Francine for your advice .... and valued comments

I will ensure that I 'Cheer Up', my previous poem, 'You Never Can Tell' a few days earlier had made poor Melanie Rees cry. So I must make amends although, 'Goin Down', well or otherwise, in Wigan's Bear Pit wasn't really what I had in mind.

love the bits an pieces of you both xx

Isobel is right, you know... so go along and have some cheer :-D

Best parts:

'Washed away in a rain of tears I extinguished love
True true love
I gave up the fight
It’s growing darker now
I’m afraid I’m losing the light'

'Where then in this cold edge of eternity lays the road to Hell?
The light has gone'

Well you may be losing the light Gus, but you're not losing your poetic touch. There's plenty to admire in this and I particularly like the end and the sad irony therein.

This is far too gloomy for Christmas though! Come along to the Tudor on Thursday and I'm sure we'll cheer you up - there's bound to be someone worse than you at any rate - which is always a strange comfort ;)

"Blazing crazed vile obscenities" - you aren't the secret compere by any chance???
