Entering the dark side of a moonbeam is always very risky since the cold and howling bitterness of the night escapes, as a moaning, devilish agony of selfishness devours the good. As the human heart fills with air, a legion of grieving spirits in the human psyche is at once intoxicated with the sacred kissed-gift of this hallowed eve as promised by the Devil. Cain searches now within Life’s Garden that special hiding place where unsuspecting Zombies of a grief-stricken nature dwell whilst being seduced by a darkness as fires burn black. What remains evident is an emotionless being who is tortured with murderous feelings that are affected when the dark smoke blows away all pride and one finds there is no remorse at all. An agonizing pain is cleared now with the Moon’s eclipse as the ghosts and goblins of the Devil seek “Hate’s Trigger” that lies under a deep-dark crater where twilight ghosts cry out now. These demonic ghosts are known as the “Crying Beggars of Despair,” who haunt the soul of mankind and are born out of the dark ashes of unhappy wild beasts who speak with tongues of envy and sadness. These ghosts now set up their invisible barbed-wire boundaries that they want to burst later as they begin fighting for their true existence in the Devil’s own “Dark Netherworld of Lost Souls.” These ghosts begin now to dance gracefully in the dark shadows as their deceptive tongues make false complaints and poisonous lies that throw the state of mind of the demonic ghosts into utter turmoil. With this evil event, their blood rushes rapidly below the skin’s surface, as a fear now clings to their throat as an eternal burning battle gains no foothold to the next following step they must take. Yes, even for the Devil’s own demonic ghosts from the depths of Hell itself, their life, their very own existence is incredibly fragile and vulnerable just like a match is to a flame. Mors omnia solvit. Gary Bateman, Anne-Lise Andresen and Liam McDaid (Tercet) 21.12.2021 Poem of the Day : 23.12.2021

Anne-Lise these are powerful lines. Even hades recognizes the power of the babe in the manger and trembles in "fragile and vulnerable." Looking past the darkness, the hope of Christmas lives in your lines. Congratulations on your POTD.

Hello Anne-Lise!! Congratulations!! I am very pleased to see the recognition here of the three-way co-write that you, Liam, and I had collaborated on together. Sometimes, three minds are better than one. Yet, at the end, it's all about the hard work, time, and commitment that all goes into making a poetic theme reflect a story or an event or a spiritual circumstance the captures the attention and emotions of the reader. This is what makes poetry fun. A superb collaboration with you and Liam!!
