Tale of Gloom

Posted by Oblivion in Poetry | 12:52am


i like looming gloom,
i like darkness
blinding and pervading
for it persists

light is but a flicker
that deceives; it will vanish
with the waft, gentle
of a lost breeze

and when the last glimmer
dissolves your shadow
the darkness returns
with steps you can’t hear

is that why, then,
man, in spite of himself,
is lured by darkness
to sow his dreams

what will you find
swimming in sea waters
dive into the depths
to find its treasures

which bird in the woods
will sing for you
unless you drag your feet
into the quiet deep

whispers of her heart
those eyes will not speak
you must, o lover,
lose yourself in her glance

what are stories worth
if they don’t voice
the dark grief
of the homeless, the forlorn

the farthest of stars
whose twinkle you admire
what will it be, if not
for the envelope of dark

tender dreams, where will
they find their wings
if the baby slips not
into the bliss of sleep

o, the light, the very light
the light of lights
finds its shimmer and song
only at the dead of night

i like looming gloom,
i like darkness
blinding and pervading
for it consumes and treasures!
