Dark Poetry: Taken for Battle



Taken for Battle
Walking under the bright iridescent moonlight
and sparkling wishful stars,
I had witnessed a scene of serenity.

For I did not choose the cryptic darkness
that switched off the light to my stars
or unplugged my moon…

It had simply grabbed my frightened hand with its frozen touch,
spiraling me through a cold thick fog,
that left me nakedly blind, making it hard to navigate
through an unknown new world…

Once a vacationer on an island of eternal hope and peace,
now a forsaken tourist,
making her way through unexplored troubled waters.

Somewhere, darkness had profusely chosen me,
…even though I had refused.
For I had no choice in the matter.
I was to battle
and come out alive.
