Terror’s Affair (poem)

Updated on February 3, 2015

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

      Your dark poetry is just as fine as your brighter subjects. I always looking forward to reading your daily posts, Martin.

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