Macabre

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.

the uglier sides of life is to where we seek solitude too much in the shadow, a raw anger of the past that seeks revenge or the raw insecurity seek secure certainty.

The dark side of the inner psyche, will always lurks around you; either from outside experience or just there waiting for you to consume it and be lost in the cruelty of our nature.

Darkness -- Perhaps you can’t control it, but you can definitely avoid it.

A very chilling write, Brother :)

Your depiction of the Macabre took me to two places, one was to Poe 's "A Tell Tale Heart", he didn't need a mirror to see his macabre. And second was to the reason why there are no mirrors in my house. I know if I see my own evil I will definitely go insane.. oh yes.. Sami I don't think we need Halloween to celebrate our human macabre.. just look around at everyday life and you will find plenty of macabre atrocities.. more than we should ever see.
It's a really good poem and as always thought provokingly honest.

It's almost Halloween again, I'll count this as your first for the holiday. How many of us die when we look in the mirror, this makes me think of "bloody Mary" when we were kids we would dare each other and no one had the guts to do it, myself included, somehow ghost fear won out over peer pressure, lol. craziness.

Poet trying to paint the picture how one approaches death, his facial and emotional expressions, also says there are difference in the embrace of death by different individual , to some it is agonizing knife and to others it is a hearty welcome all depends on person and the state he is in when death approaches. Death being the only certain phenomenon after birth it is a naked truth. Death can be spiritual, emotional and physical and all these are scarier too. Euthanasia might have came across based on the difference in perception of death. The inner self of darkness is scarier than actual death, intrigue writing

Exploring the dark that is beneath the surface of humanity -- we are all fascinated to some degree with the macabre, just depends on how we interpret it.
