This is a poetic expression of agony and despair that is a common thread throughout humanity. This was different and unfamiliar for me to write, my first ever poem that lacks rhyme in verse. Here's looking at you, kid?

My dear friend Stranger in the Corner has written a complimentary piece meant to align by line with this piece. Please read together for greatest impact. http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/poetry/stranger_in_the_corner/answer-to-what-come-dark-day

Praise the darkness
For it has squashed the light
Flickering endlessly it seems
But an end came
Tribulation proved 
To be more than can be withstood
Let your light go out and be no more

Cruelty trumps kindness
Judgement superior to mercy
Condemnation avails as freedom goes captive
I praise you darkness, for you were stronger than the brightest light
My soul in suffering
Be no more
Reconcilliation impossible
As dignity has laid down in the dust
Wrap me in sackcloth
As I mourn the loss of all that mattered
Why?! Oh let my name be stamped out
Let the day be somber when they said I would be born
Snuff the brilliance of a flame 
Blown out one too many times
A rayless day I make my bed
And lie in it until the sun rises
But there is no light
There is no mercy
There is no forgiveness
This place is void of understanding 
Enigmatic, one hunts for relief
Finding none turns back rejected
As the sands of the hourglass fall
So are the days of our lives
Goodbye possibility
Adios potential
You have chosen your way, and I mine
And never the twain shall meet.
