I have been working on some new poems lately... And as many of you know, I like poetry dark, moody and depressing...LOL... Here's one I wrote yesterday, Hope it dims your day :-)
The world outside my window,
imprisoned in a chrysalis state.
Trees weighed down in frosted death
unable to sway in the arctic wind.
Mountains of white crystal water
absorb all signs of life-
the landscape barren and grey.
Cold emptiness seeps through my pores,
trapping me in an astral plane of regret-
causing me to live in portraits of the past.
In black and white strips of time streaked film
I view the dismal images of a broken life.
Memories frozen in time
flicker across the horizon;
like pencil sketched phantoms,
they will haunt me through the dreary days
until the sun breaks through
the ash filled sky.
