Speed of dark

By: Ian Dawn

Page 1, I was looking at a quote about the speed of light and thought about the speed of dark

The speed of light is measured in time

With many fighting to break the barrier

And travel to the stars and shine

As the astronomical peace carrier


The speed of pain is measured in resistance

Often as a result of fates unrelenting hand

And realize there is no further existence

As salty tears flow and moisten the dying land


The speed of love is measured in persistence

As the heart overflows with unknown feelings

When cupids arrows stinging it into existence

As we imagine love without boundaries or ceilings


The speed of hate is true and without peer

With a ferocious appetite for loathing

And a need to cause never before seen Fear

It causes decay and stench as if decomposing  


The speed of dark is measured in dread

The ability to cause bone freezing fright

And create unspeakable images in your head

As the darkness encloses the existence of light
