Ten Years In Darkness
A decade, a generation
ten years, a drop of time
ten years I walked in darkness
until I found you; made you mine

Sunrise and sunset
daylight passes to night
ten years I walked in darkness
and finally, I see the light.

Anger, rage and frustration.
Depression, solitude, demise.
Ten years I walked in darkness
but you finally opened my eyes.

Hunger, filth and destitution.
Cold and lonely nights.
Ten years I walked in darkness
but now I know delight

Ten long years I spent in darkness
ten years, an age of strife
I thank God I have you now
forever in my life

Good poem. I think the experience of being in the dark for so long taught you a lesson. I just finished a poem in which I was in 12 years of darkness, under the influence of drugs and alcohol. 16+ years clean and sober later, it feels so good to be in the light.
