Whispers in the dark, plagued by ghouls,
Demonic creatures tether his weakened soul.
Strength waning must give in to the night,
Fading away in to the sinful blight.

Resolve once mighty to evade Satan’s calling,
But soon angels shall watch his inevitable falling.
In to the pitch black crevices of hell,
Where the abominations of lore dwell.

Dire circumstances are given the blame,
For his ultimate descent into the flame.
Heated arguments, feign happiness to deceive,
Force him to seek a demons reprieve.

One more glorious spirit condemned to agony,
In the eyes of heaven nothing but blasphemy.
He failed everyone by joining evils incarnation.
Or have we, by pushing him towards unholy immolation.

    Brilliantly written. I hope you were not talking about yourself. If yes, hold your ground

    You know as well as I do that feedback or human validation is not to be taken personally when it comes to your work. But from me to you: keep writing what you are writing. I really enjoy your poems. I enjoy them not only because they are well-written and thoughtful but because you write about the deepest, darkest crevices of human nature. You bring them to light in a fashion that is naked but not ugly. I love writing that reaches into the soul and you do this well. People may say that it is negative. But, some of the world’s greatest minds were unpleasant to be around (Van Gogh, Einstein, Beethoven, etc.).

    Your poetry is like drinking old wine, it’s rich and beautiful and it burns all the way through. It’s addicting, you cannot not read it. It’s this higher form of poetry, which is beautifully crafted, curved and designed. Simple words, broken sentences but they make so much sense. Anyone who misses out on your poetry, is missing out on life. It’s threateningly dark but fills light into other minds. Words really cannot express or compliment the words you spin with those fingers of yours.


  8. impressive. best wishes from baldy

    Potent imagery. It puts me in mind of many a heavy metal song I’ve heard down through the years. I like that you’re unafraid to write to these themes!
