Chaotic Nightmares

Stranger,
how did you walk
into my lonely home?
I weaved this world from thousands of
nightmares.

Savior!
Golden angel,
cleanse my dream with your light.
You won’t leave me in the darkness,
will you?

The night
revolves around
our chaos-ridden souls.
Can we unmake the demon’s spell?

I hate cinquains.

Don’t get me wrong–not because I don’t like the form. I just had an unpleasant experience at school when we had to write a cinquain about a crappy theme and now the word reminds me of the awful day. Ahem.

But I did have fun interpreting the picture Jane gave us this week. With the second poem, I tried to write something positive. I really did. But uncertainty is better, yeah?

  1. I read in the shadow poetry entry about the cinquain, that it has been used to bash home grammar points and other unpoetic themes. What a shame. I’m glad you overcame your revulsion 🙂 My favourite is the first one. I love the last phrase.

    1. Yeah, I don’t think poetry should be used in such a way. I’m glad it didn’t make me give up on cinquains for good=D
      The first one is actually the last one I wrote but I put it first because I prefer it, too. Thank you for your comment!
