When shadows turn in the macabre!

When shadows turn in the macabre!

A Poem by andrew mitchell

The macabre
was no more a
presence of mind
living in the shadows,
dark foreboding
eclipsing the rationality
of common sense
while light was given
shining once more,
a glimmer of hope
as shadows ran
in the safety of the dark
creating hysteria.

If the second occurrence of 'while' was replaced by 'as' the flow would be spot on in this poignant piece of 'Poe pie' A.M.

Aaaaaagh! Great imagery and eloquent, sinister words make me think of gothic ruins and wailing spirits- just in time for Halloween too! Macabre is a state of mind not to be trifled with. Great read Andrew!

I love pushing the limits on writing poetry. Not everyone's cup of tea but maybe a few will enjoy the twists and turns, the simple, the depth of simplicity, the bizarre and the ridiculous. Strindberg.. more..
