When Darkness Creeps Upon Us- a poem

When Darkness Creeps Upon Us
K.N. Lee

When darkness creeps upon us
It's usually not at night
True darkness creeps inside us
Silent
And out of sight
When the walls fall
And mountains crumble
A little ray of hope
Flutters in
Or stumbles
One might smile
For love brings light
But when one rips it away
Or gives up the mighty fight
The heart may weep
The soul may cry
When darkness creeps upon us
You'll now know why 
For true darkness stems from heartache
A wretched lover
Cruel and cold
One who'll knock you down
And watch you fall
True darkness comes from
Inner pain
Not the switch on the wall
