Chaos and Terror

Chaos is the Cosmos telling you that you are forever lost.

Turmoil.  Mind like a lost gypsy cab driving through a chaotic concrete jungle.

Dystopia.  Disembarking, it’s so dark and it’s so quiet in the ruins, grey and burned black broken like bad teeth .

Lost.  Then I’m walking on wet cobbled stones, just a bum with threadbare dirty clothes, down at the heel shoes, a body that’s all skin and bones. 

Doom.  The final dark gloom of a Dead Man Walking to nowhere and forever.

Despair.  Now all the good has gone from my life ~ what is joy, what is elation?

Dishonour.  I want you all to know that once I was proud, once I was a man and once I meant something.  But that’s not now.  That’s not now.

Terror.  I need to wake up.  I need to go home.  I need to find friendship again.

Loneliness.  I have no love, only blackness in my heart, my Goddess has gone.

Nightmare.  But, bad memories, just like the seas, live on.

  1. Dark, brooding and while artistic, can pull the reader’s mood down. What did it do to the writer’s mood?😶

    1. Thanks for the perceptive comment. I found righting this cathartic, it took away night terrors I didn’t realise I had.

  2. OH! This is so sad. I keep looking for the sunshine on the seawater, the glimpse of light for a better tomorrow. I know it is there. No darkness can live without light. Light exists not to destroy dark, but to enhance it. You can’t have light if darkness doesn’t exist.

    1. This is a weird dystopian piece, sort of like night terrors, or one of those science fiction movies where everything is bad, mad, dark and unpleasant. I’d call this ‘prose poetry’ and when I write ‘poetry’ it comes straight from my deepest subconscious without much deliberate intervention before it’s published. So there you go. ❤ ❤
      Lots of love and hugs to you Kris. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
