Random Poem:

Laughing at Forever
unknown

Bleak canvas of light’s mourning
 1
To mask the entwining shadows
 2
Illuminated like the wisp of a breath
 3
Within winters frigid air
 4
All who glimpse a view into the
 5
Deep recesses of the night’s longing
 6
Cannot disentangle the breached illusion
 7
Of gasping, moaning utterance of songs
 8
They are those who cry out
 9
For the loss of the depth of the darkest that comes before
 10
A departure, such desire, sadness embraced no more
 11
Forewarned, the hidden hope lying untraced by phantom fingers
 12
Only a memory to recognize a host of spiritual disarming
 13
