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.

    1. I’m glad I read this again. The first time my eyes missed “the devilry of your kiss ” now I understand more your confusion but what a delicious debate.

  1. 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”.

  2. Beware, “the devilry of your kiss as outside an
    uncertain sky bathed in pale October
    light bears witness.”
    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.
