The Dark Night of Soul

Spread the love

Beyond your words there lies a dark
world, daring me step into the mists
and dreams. I am glued to confusion,
a dubious murmur of red alchemy,
the devilry of your kiss as outside an
uncertain sky bathed in pale October
light bears witness.

    There certainly is a challenge after the murmurings of words! Great word-craft Sanaa!

    I thought you and Robin would be bound to post the most romantic poems (each in your own unique styles) this Valentine’s Day week. And indeed this is romantic – but it also surprises and intrigues with the darkness and uncertainty. Yes, “red alchemy” is wonderfully striking; I also like “the devilry of your kiss”.

    I should certainly say it does. This was a fun little read, Sanaa. But we should take our doubts seriously as it seems you writer is doing.
