Dark Horse

Dark Horse

I gave it all up
there is little that you can understand
Nor for instance do I
but dark horse I remain

And yet I knew it well from a young age
dark horse that I would be
uncomfortable as that could ever show
now however not so much

And it’s all okay you cannot feel bad for the dark horse
they look not for sympathy
but to go alone in the dark of night
because dark and dark go so well together

Now we ride alone across  the prairies of the dusk
and dance where no one watches
we sing silent into the heavens
where dark voices run forever free

And if you see me there alone on the astral plains
seek not my mate
for dark horses were never meant to be paired
such is the dark horses fate

No more a solitude of loneliness no realm
and no kingdom required
Perhaps born simply a soul alone
a soul but old and tired

Sometime in my life I started to write about my life journey , in poetry, in storyperhaps to sort them out and enter them intoa place of safe keeping . The soul of the writeris perhaps best described in their words , emotions and thoughts . If these poemsor stories touch something inside youthen maybe I have succeeded in sharing . I will not write about my selfin profile , because self isn't so important in writing . Only the journey in wordsandthe sharing areimportant . Why would weever say " Now about me !"........I'd rather write about life , nature , serenity ........

    A dark horse has a lonely path. It is a path of knowing the self and growing spiritually. This is a great piece to prompt one to think deeply of their own path. Well done, Ed. Take care dear friend.

    Ed, I love the title and this was a poem that causes one to reflect on loneliness and life in general. Good work. I sometimes consider myself a “dark horse’, or is that a “black sheep?” Not sure.
