..Gossamer Heart..

(Gossamer Heart)

The wind howls violently beyond my opaque asylum
Animating erroneous obsessions
Encouraging doubt to weigh heavy along its path
And I, through black rose lips, curse the incursion

I sit here perched upon diaphanous throne
Shoulders hunched and head hung low
Dark curtains of feathered silk cloud my sight
As untouchable ghosts invade my thoughts

Peeking through the prosaic strands
Imperceptible light pierces the nocturnal sky
Phantasmal shadows leave mesmerized blurs
And I hold tight, my gossamer heart

Blitzed by these nights of pain
Shadows of abyss set flame
I cannot speak..
I choke on shame..
When the wind gods howl i here my name

The darkness of a fragile heart
Slowly being torn apart
The pieces break and melt away
A love lost..In a heart's decay..

Cobwebs cover my broken soul..
My faith is lost..In a story untold..
The future?...Will we ever know?

And as I sit here
Peeking out the window
Into the cold and dreary night

I glanced upon a shattered mirror
Where reflection bears no soul
I reached for tainted pen
And colored the page in shades of grey

And as I neared the end
Broken and decayed
I wondered if you would be
The guardian of my gossamer heart.

I really loved this poem, it's dark heartbreak a palpable presence as I read. The rhythm gets a little off in the last few stanzas, but overall this is a really nice piece.

The images are really taking off. Nice improvement in the writing. Just watch out for to many (of) the (of) metaphors they can become real weak in structure. It's best to write around them if you can do it. One way is to make a possessive of the images instead of using the (of). Just a thought to pass on for your next poem

This piece has BeautifulDeath's artisan trademark voicing all over it: her phrasing, grammar, flawless spelling, her arrangement, syntax, flow, and creative creepiness. She is the God(dess) Of Darkness on this site. All other darkness pales to her masterful writing.

I enjoyed writing this with you it was a pleasure. It looks great up and love the picture you put with it. thanks again. 10 from me

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
