The Phantom Mask

The Phantom Mask

A Poem by C. Peril
"

After a temporary pause from writing I decided to get back into the habit with a short poem which explores the concepts of creativity, motivation and the forces behind writing and living.

"
When you are the abyss
and it stares into you,
what can it become?

Could it become the canvas
that saves you
Redemption? 

Could it be the emptiness
that moves you...


to create something of extreme beauty? 




You are in a dark place
but it all came from darkness
