Dark Poetry: Our World, A Forsaken Coffer

Updated on May 31, 2018

With the darkest of my thoughts transferred to written words perhaps it is a little easier to think.

A Foresaken Coffer
A Foresaken Coffer | Source

Sterile;

Infinite;

Expanse;

Lifeless abode;

Engulfed by fetid air,

A rancid stench

of ancient annihilation.


Prominent, expectant,

Parched of all plasmic cartilage

A scavenged chasm.

Harvested;

Swarmed;

Stripped raw;

to naked repugnance.


Unfathomable depression:

Human scaffolding;

Embodied;

Fused;

Masquerading; mangled clumps.

Amalgamated amidst

the crude crawling earth.


Impregnated debris,

Mundane, ashen ossified matter,

A suppressed desolate abyss:

Obliterated;

Shrouded;

Monstrous;

Deprivation.


Piteous;

Mortifying;

Catacomb;

An eternal macabre crater.

Unredeemed;

Nomadic marrow;

Eradicated to unknown existence.


Candelstine:

A perpetual vacuum,

of mass affliction.

Desolate;

Desert;

Forlorn void;

Unparalleled.


Demonic wraith,

Dormant,

Mid the charcoal fragments

of extinction.

Contrived by mortals,

Condemned by the mortified

A foresaken coffer...















Writer's Note

Death is the equality we all share: all living things from the fish in the sea to the birds in the sky to the yellowing meadow full of wild spring flowers. Those who use their power (be it money or status) to take lives (be it in solitude or masses) destroy nature and abuse our world shall one day be nothing more than ossified matter in their eventuality of unfathomable depression in their own forsaken coffer. We can only hope it will be sooner rather than later.

Whether God in some form or other exists we may wonder but the devil for sure is alive and walks amongst us. And every chance he gets, he consumes.

      The end of the world will certainly be a lifeless abode, your thoughts are certainly very interesting and actually very accurate too. Thanks for that Peggy.

      A peaceful world would be something to write about. Perhaps one day there will be inspiration to do just that. We can hope.

      Your poem struck me as the end of the world driven by the worst instincts of man. Yes...the devil is surely alive. A peaceful world seems like a distant dream unfortunately.
