The Darkest Darkness of All

PAD Challenge day 20; For today’s prompt, write a dark poem. 

This was not a fun poem to write!
Oh, the darkest darkness of all is surely Spiritual Darkness
where Satan who has vowed vengeance through seduction of souls, rules.

Below, an excerpt from John Milton's Epic; Paradise Lost As Satan sees his fate...

Ah, cup of sorrow’s bitter draught
Ah, darkness of hope lost
Ah, longing for those days we laughed
Before the Door was locked

Ah, dread that weighs the heart with fear
Ah, fear, dark screams its cries
Ah, cold and comfortless the tear
That none can cheer with lies

Ah, darkness of eternity
Where demon-hordes applaud
As Soul meets death’s calamity
Unprepared to meet God

John 3:19
And this is the verdict:
The Light has come into the world,
but men loved the darkness rather than the Light,
because their deeds were evil.

John 8:12
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said,
 "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,
 but will have the light of life."

John 12:35
Then Jesus told them, "For a little while longer, the Light will be among you. 
Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you.
 The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going.
