visions dark

violence and vice,
etched in my mind-
a depraved world
struggles against
peace and harmony.

broken-in

i can finally say
i've found true and lasting joy-

my soul, much like
that pair of old shoes,
is rather well-worn,

but, i say, broken-in,
and comfortable for the day.

inclined

where i will, i go,
somewhat blindly-

inclinations
almost always
seemingly right-

without wondering, 'what?'-

even down the path
further astray,
unfortunately...

getting lost
in my own way.

illusion

billions of years,
and this happens

It's been a long time since I practiced Romantic and Gothic poetry, but I really want to get back in the swing of things. I was so focused on clarity and simplicity, I lost quite a bit of the sensuality that made my poetry stand out back in the day... I hope to return to my roots. I know I've been saying this for awhile, but I'm finally ready to take to a more solitary journey, but making better contributions when I do surface from time to time. :)
