Dark Screamers

    Dark Screamers

    I hear them screaming in the dark

    from everywhere and nowhere, 

    the best lines, already spoken

    none written for mercies sake

    Deposit thy fears atop desolation

    for here it is gentle, a final kindness

    considerate, vile, passing metaphor  

    an unlikely trespassed thought

    Strike blindly, desperate, miles deep

    unrelenting anguish, bestiary pain

    charities only reward, moral allegory

    lessons better left unlearned


    Harbinger of hatred, thin voiced refrain

    tiptoed, ethereal haunting stray

    imprisoned forever, this daunting pain

    how emboldened sorrows fray


    I hear them, the dark screamers

    from some once upon a place

    woe to leave, a haunting burden

    self contained, airy dead space....

    this may be your best poem to date, worthy of publication ( i mean that in a good way!) it has a polished feel of an accomplished poet. great job bro!

    To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
