Sombre

Sombre

Darkened wraith a plague on me,
Haunting dusk consistently.
In sombre laid in nightmares wake,
In sleep relinquish reality.

Searching through obscured haze,
Spectre behold captures gaze.
Whispers carry on waves in horde,
Consumed within narrowing maze.

Crumbling earth beneath my feet,
Attempt to flee in shadow discreet.
All that is immersed in grey,
Beleaguered, feeble on repeat.

Allured before uncertainty,
For all unsure its purgatory.
Screams of men in slain,
Witness to all depravity.

Wild imagination,
Surreal abomination,
Every night I fall,
Consumed with frustration.

Sir SIMON BROMLEY!!....I think you've captured VERY well what you set out to do with these succinct phrases that strike at the heart of theย nature of a dream involving an apparition!!........the dark melancholy of the tone is accomplished with those perfect word choices that help to create your ever-morphing imagery....which in turn weaves the whole of it into ~ "SOMBRE"......a poetic foray into the ghostly nightmare!!.....ALL STARS!!.....well done dear poet brother!!......LOVE & ROCKETS!!......T xo ๐Ÿ‘Œโœด๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘โœดโคย
