Dark Poetry

A poem looking at the very really possibility that some people are dark and brooding simply because that is what they are and how they were meant to be

How I am Meant to be

I don't get it, how other people, all around me
can be having fun.
Laughing.
Joking.
Full of life
when I am so empty, devoid of the same
laughter,
jokes,
life.

This has always been
and I suppose it always will.
Perhaps, like a wintery night or
a wet, dank, dreary day
this is how I am supposed to be.

Maybe, as there are bright days and dark days,
dark people are meant to be.

If that is so,
then this is me.
I brood and move within the shadows as that is
my nature.

As bats fly in the night
and thrive because of the dark
I thrive, ironically, by my own darkness.

Though I walk in the daylight and feel
the sun on my skin
I cannot wait for the night to
begin.

I wear black and grey
because nature has made
me this way.

Everyone is dark, some people are just more conscience of their shadow.
