Poetry ~ Loathsome Lovers

Greetings and welcome to October!

As the light dims and darkness falls, I’ll be conjuring a constellation of dark poetry for your reading pleasure. My dark poetry series is a smidge spooky, often with a twist, and at times sprinkled with a dash of dark humor. In this dialogue poem we meet the loathsome lovers.

A day in the life…

Crestfallen, her tears obscured
the sound of his dark heart pounding.

“Your wretched tears are salt in
my wound,” he snarled.

“Then I shall weep for
all eternity,” she hissed.


“I’m going back to sleep!” he scowled.
 His coffin slammed shut.

Fuming, she set the coffin ablaze,
mounted her broom and flew off in a rage.

“I shall live to die another day!” he taunted.

Vampires and witches, loathsome lovers,
snarling and hissing throughout eternity
.

Poetry ~ Current Vibe

vibe poem

Stormy.

Chance of hysterical laughter,
with scattered tears.

Pattern to continue indefinitely,
due to La Artista Loca Dama.

The phenomenon causes
micro-bursts of sporadic creativity
sprinkled with sarcasm.

The advisory level
has been upgraded from
“Watch” to “Warning”.

Be safe out there folks.

You never know where she’ll land,
but if she makes contact
you’re likely to find yourself
in the debris field of her poetry!

Poetry ~ The Big Fish (Friday Funnies)

It was a hot summer day when a poem snagged my line

it was dangling by a hook as it spun through my mind

I tugged and pulled, reaching for paper and pen

to capture each word as I reeled the big one in

but it came in no order and flopped about

slipping through my fingers as I began to doubt

if the poem was a keeper or a throwaway,

but capture and release is the practice of the day

so I gave the fish a kiss and watched it swim away

now it can grow bigger to be caught another day!
