Existence Is Insanity

I roam this dark abandoned crypt,
Estranged from lush reality,
My form is frail and nondescript.
Existence is insanity.

I run from judgment, hiding here,
Afraid of the calamity
I’d wreak by letting go of fear—
Existence is insanity.

A ghost, forever lost, alone,
I can’t accept mortality.
So desolation is my home,
Existence is insanity.

I roam this dark abandoned crypt…
Existence is insanity.

Rain and Lightning

Rain and lightning—desolation,
no place to run—our fate is clear.
We are lost in desperation,
there’s no way to destroy our fears.

We place hopes in our own magic,
but will it wash away our tears
or wreak more regret and panic?
There’s no way to destroy our fears.

Guarding us against relentless
demonic kings, their heinous heirs,
our familiar grows more restless.
There’s no way to destroy our fears

Rain and lightning—desolation,
there’s no way to destroy our fears.

A kyrielle sonnet written in response to Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge. Not sure how this turned out but I seem to have returned to a more dark mood=D

Prisoner — #writephoto

Enchanted by the azure waves,
I roam the gloomy mountain caves
In hopes that light will rescue me.
I wonder when I will be free.

There is no solace in the dark–
No sunny ray, no moonlit spark…
A wretched spirit follows me.
I wonder when I will be free.

The troubled ghost can read my mind;
He tells me I shall never find
The key to immortality…
I wonder when I will be free.

Enchanted by the azure waves,
I wonder when I will be free.

Written for Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo prompt.

I decided to write a kyrielle sonnet. It was easier to write than a kyrielle for some reason, maybe because a dark theme crept into my head yet again. I love dark themes.
