I really did not know what form this is so just picked GROOK, not knowing what a Grook is either. LOL Well, I remember Bobby Tojo's Grandfather Shiraito saying lots of times in his poetry classes at the University, "...knowledge of, or education in, the poetic process, does NOT a poet make..." Well, I got lucky, this poem comes close to the definition of a GROOK.

              LOVE LETTER TO LIGEIA
I came in the name of He who gave you breath.
As certain as the emptiness of time,
as hopeful as your life, and meaningless as death,
I came to stay.

No holy water, no exorcist's demand,
can quench your thirst; your need for all I am.
I fill your head with things not meant to understand,
I came to stay.

I breath your name, tormented you may seem,
and sleepless is your night, I fill your time.
I am the joy of life beyond your dying scream,
I came to stay.

I came in the name of He who gives you death.
I am the calm and blinding of the light.
Forever part of you, I am your very breath.
I came to stay.
