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.

    MAN, this wants to be the title of a whole ‘nother poem:
    “a dubious murmur of red alchemy”

    And maybe even a novel. Wonderful.

    The uncertainty of the main character about this dubious person….you describe it so well. I like how the only witness – the sky- is also uncertain.

  16. 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”.
