Dark And Mystical

under the shimmering of the moon 
ghostly shrouds of darkness impugn 
like a flock of raven on a misty lawn
any human dimension completely gone 

reverberating inaudible melodies 
degenerated into cacophonous felonies 
the disturbed silent sinister girth 
on the daylight half of the earth 

a divided world and a falling star percolate
fragments of dark bricks accumulate 
in unrecognizable small particles 
molding immense walls of  obstacles 

hurricanes conquer ferocious oceans
storms fill the phantom of emotions
all grades of hail  plaguing the night
a dark nightmare's galley proof

behind closed eyes and  locked doors 
horror-ghosts creep and float on all floors
an quixotic obsession inhales
the darkest shadow of earlier tales

    You conjured up many eerie, and dark images. I think you have a winner.
