Terror’s Affair (poem)

From terror’s deep sea

It comes back for me

The fog in the air

Gives proof it is there


Its reason set free

To lash out at me

And on my despair

It feeds without care


Oh what destiny

Has brought it to me

What sin did I bare

To open its snare


In darkness I flee

With it upon me

No rest from affair

Is found anywhere


At each misery

It’s waiting for me

It’s claws to add flare

In screams which we share


Toward infinity

Of madness in me

Its teeth form a lair

In shadows I bear


What sorrows now spree

This wind over me

No words can compare

As pain shows its glare


Dark’s dawn sets us free

From purpose of we

Toward unknown to stare

With shroud we now wear

Poetry is so beautiful. I think it takes a special skill to describe non-beautiful things in poetry. I admire you.
