Dark Thoughts

Dark Thoughts

In my darkness
there is light
from the flames
that you have doused
with the oil of discontent
A fire rages
Burning fury
In my fiery furnace
I imagine a snake-like neck
Twisting, elongating
as a corkscrew
pulling your heart
through your head
before it explodes
Scorched words
of contrition
fly from your mouth
and lay burning
on the ground
Until all that remains
are ashes of what
you once were

Sanaa is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and has
prompted us with Gothic Poetry.

For today’s Poetics, I would like you to write
a Gothic poem and explore the question:
“Which according to you are the deepest,
darkest and most concealed of human emotions?”

Music of Madness – Poem of the Month – December 2020

Music of Madness

Hypnotic sounds
calling in silver
from sitar strings
Following though 
forests of jade jewels 
Arms stretched wide
clutching as rainbows
slip through hands 
Crimson-pink quavers
trail from fingertips
Words of grey
float on clouds 
scratched into 
purple sky
The rusty refuge
sunken deep
into monotone
memories
as a finale of
spinning cymbals
of gold crash land on
symphony’s saffron strands

Grace is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
and has prompted us with part two of
Synesthesia.
Today we will incorporate music in our poem
from the perspectiveof a synesthete.
Create your own Symphony.
Infuse your musical experience when listening
to a band, artist or musical genre, with colors,
sounds & textures.
Write a song filled with colors.

I was inspired by "Tomorrow Never Knows"
by the Beatles from their Revolver album.
It is 'trippy' and easy to conjure up
colors and movement.
