Poetry ~ Poet of Darkness

darkness

Poet of darkness? I pray not!

Wake me from this dream,
for I cannot!

Seducer of words
what have you to say?

Rhymer, reducer
what game do you play?

Sepia-toned inker, sleep!
As your words fade away.

Destroyer of darkness
your light brings decay.

    • Exactly! This is how it came to me in my dream. Initially I thought I should make it clear for the reader, but then it lost its essence so I kept it in its original form. Thanks for reading😊

    • I’m trying not to see the darkness as something to fear. Truly in my darkest moments I’ve experience great spiritual growth. (Often in hindsight) I know this to be true for myself personally. This month was a bit of dark ghostly fun with a message imbedded in each poem. As we approach November I’ll bring back the light. 😊

      • I agree with you Sue, darkness is not to be feared and bringing a bit of fun to it with a hidden message is a great idea. I let myself wallow in misery sometimes and I seem really dismal but in fact I’m just letting it break me open. Seeing the dark side is part of that process.

  1. At first, I feel like the sun is bleaching things out, then I think about vampires. Hmm. It’s art. And from your dream, you say? I sometimes get ideas from dreams, mostly, I get scared 😛
