Darkened World Apathy

Follow me downward
Into my greatest depth
Stumbling madman
It was I, indeed it was

I drove, I lashed out
The world was dark
The people objects
And I could not
Care less

I do now, it scares me
Murder was at hand
The knife was mine
Every breathing soul
Out and about
And yes it was I
Angry and disfigured
Misunderstood

The world was dark
Lights meant nothing
Nor law, raging
Intense eyes shined
I laughed in apathy
The ruins of me
Lay in clear view
My humiliation
A lesson I suppose
My carelessness
A frightful terror
To me now, sober
The world was dark
People only objects
Yes it was I and I
Couldn't have cared less.

I normally do not explain the meaning behind my poetry, rather I want to reader to form their own opinion as to the meaning. This, however, was inspired by my arrest a couple of months ago for drinking and driving, truly something I regret a great deal.
I am ashamed to have done, fortunately no one was hurt however it's something I've always been strongly against and something I am against more than ever. It was a dark time for me which is no excuse but sometimes in dark times we do dumb things.

Please never drink and drive.
