Macabre

Macabre

A Poem by Sami Khalil
"

The inner dark side of us. An autumn psychological write...He can refer to our psyche..

"

Macabre/…….By Sami Khalil

A macabre write of the inner self…The dark side of us looking in the mirrors of insecurity...

The Poem:



He took the stages of pillared darkness, loathing in bizarre ways sought-after incarnadine backdrops, where madly arrayed moons withdrew, after the unrest of Sabbath gaps in fragile insecurities.


I saw his face, slicing through hunger and thirst, inspired by the tragic; the realm of shriek and grotesque, where certainty kissed the hands of death responsive to the interruption of life.


 Easily broken clouds addressed the self-doubt of insomnia, for my goodness, you could hear souls dancing in the burning of little births.


A shadow of gold he was, but to the court of others, a sharpened knife, seeking footsteps of breathless ashes where many ruins are deep in the essence of wisdom so much that temptations are the sighs in the margins.


Was death with him a happy scene, when I fancied the rhyming of standing ovations, simply caressing the veils at the funerals of regrets? 


Those willed to shadow sleep are the phenomenon!

He took the stages of pillared darkness, loathing in bizarre ways sought-after incarnadine backdrops, where madly arrayed moons withdrew, after the unrest of Sabbath gaps in fragile insecurities.

Our ego is only happy when everyone is enslaved. A very proofed write.

There is something to be said for the melancholy macarbre type, if only to harness it for muse and then return to the living would be quite the art, really enjoyed the spiral of un-nerving in this.. very well captured..

A very powerful poem on the darker realms of the poet's mind, where self-doubts and regrets prevail, defeating the light. The play of words is amazing and takes the reader through a very intriguing and bizarre world of self-loathing, doubt and temptations that exists within each one of us.

Wow, Sami...this one is dark and disturbing. Disturbing metaphors, disturbing images. I can't get that picture out of my mind, either. Did Halloween inspire this one? I may have dug this one out later than everyone else. It is nearly Christmas time, now....but here we are reading of death, a breathless knife. A sliver of gold...Great metaphors with tremendous depth and ingenuity. Brilliant. Thank you, my friend. I hope I can sleep in peace tonight after this one.

dear Sami, when I was twenty, a group of us
went with a guide, crawling through passages
under the ground in West Virginia, with bright lights
on our hard hats and hands. We came to a lake under
ground where Bats nestled above and flew
about. I have discovered through the years
that there is more darkness above ground
where our emotions are distorted into
fear and tears. Your poetry places
Light on the darkness as we seek the
stained glass windows where the light
shines through. truly, Pat
