Hey, I never said I only write the happy stuff! Guess this came of my current project of trying to read through the whole of the Cthulu Mythos corpus of works.
Below is the poem entitled Cthulhu Sunset which was written by poet
Masonis. Please feel free to comment on this poem. However, please remember, PoetrySoup is a place of encouragement and growth.

The slash that is the roll of clouds
Above the rising darkness
That is gathering all about
Is fading into blackness
That is soulless and immortal
That is older than the spaces between the stars
The Watcher in the Spaces
Approaches in his mindless way.
A kind of silence
Falls upon the subtle bending;
All the angles have gone wrong
A piping now the only song
An idiot's tone
Overlaid with sombre sighings
Laughter laughter laughter
Mad and mirthless
From the darkness
That is living
The Old Ones revel,
In the sweetness of our final degradation.
A single scream
Is stitching space and time together
Like a silver needle;
Does it belong to me, or all my kind?
Is there some future anymore
With reason broken on the shore
Whence evil incarnate sails in
Its sovereignty now to begin?
Time may deign sometime to tell,
