( Dark Doubles Tribute To Poetic Those Gifts Given By Raven And Master Poe ) (1.) Under Bright Bloody-Red Midnight Moon, Raven Plays Yes, those horrific screams, came from below those frosty chills, born from eerie glow echoes bouncing off tall bloody-red walls terror and fear from Raven's midnight calls! Hold tight, darkness plays on this evil night. Hidden out of sight, beasts of monstrous might. Yes, agony and pain, a wafting tune innocent souls weep, gasping ladies swoon for the beast can any image assume and savage with sharp claws all in its doom! Hold tight, darkness plays on this evil night. Hidden out of sight, beasts of monstrous might. Yes, your turn may come about very soon souls must die under this accursed moon while just beneath, under graves freshly dug devilish imps give victims wicked hugs! Hold tight, darkness plays on this evil night. Hidden out of sight, beasts of monstrous might. Yes, night skies rain down sorrows and deep woes they can not fight minus their feet and toes within blackest wails, demon songs are sung from swirling walls, blood-dripping heads are hung! Hold tight, darkness plays on this evil night. Hidden out of sight, beasts of monstrous might. Yes, from life's descent into dark abyss from love's romantic touch to serpent's kiss many woke to nightmare in brightest red no longer alive and yet not quite dead! Hold tight, darkness plays on this evil night. Hidden out of sight, beasts of monstrous might. Yes, only dawn's light can this evil stop for on this night Raven's sweet hell did drop Raven hates all that its ghost decries for its touch falls from night's angry black skies! Hold tight, darkness plays on this evil night. Hidden out of sight, beasts of monstrous might. Robert J. Lindley, 4-26- 2020 Rhyme, ( Dark Doubles Dedicated To Poetic Gifts Of Raven And Master Poe ) (2.) Master Poe Swore With Raven He Had No More Ties Iron chains loud rattling and cell door rusted shut weakened soul, prayed food for his swollen, aching gut decades had slowly flown by, Time had there oft stopped Fate into hellish pit had his torn body dropped! With broken heart and unbearable anguished cries. Master Poe swore with Raven he had no more ties! In absolute dark, in tiny cell he was chained full of remorse, sad regret that had his life stained begging to be freed to die a true and just death each and every hour praying for his last short breath! With broken heart and unbearable anguished cries. Master Poe swore with Raven he had no more ties! Sounds from far above and echoes of Raven's shrieks Master Poe heard evil curses as Raven speaks knew Raven was torturing more innocent souls in black castles evil midnight bells rang out tolls! With broken heart and unbearable anguished cries. Master Poe swore with Raven he had no more ties! From deeper within, chorus of laughter and glee chained there were those so happily too blind to see waiting on bounty promised from Raven's great lies born from lustful dreams those chained forever deny! With broken heart and unbearable anguished cries. Master Poe swore with Raven he had no more ties! As Poe wept, sweet soft voice he from a bright light heard telling him, his last breath would come from his true words and that new found peace in his new and well lit heart would hold He and his foe's dark's deeds so far apart! With broken heart and unbearable anguished cries. Master Poe swore with Raven he had no more ties! Robert J.

Darkness to match the fear of today's controlled world Robert. "and that new found peace in his new and well lit heart would hold He and his foe's dark's deeds so far apart!" The light shall always over come the darkness. Well done Robert. I can't think of Mr. Poe without thinking of Vincent Price who was so excellent at playing those dark parts. Blessings xxoo

Thank you my friend. I too always envision Vincent Price when thinking of Poe. I just presented another set of doubles that I'd been working on for a couple weeks. Poems composed to show contrast between Light and Dark. I finally had time this morn to finish both of them. God bless..

Brilliantly composed Robert, they don't come much darker than these , I know Master Poe would be impressed. Stay safe. Tom

Thank you my friend. Although many frown on dark poetry, they oft then will turn right around and give great praise to Poe and his famous poems. To me poetry is poetry be it light or dark. Some want it divided as if it is pie. Sad that some ignore one half of the equation- when a list of very famous poets that wrote dark poetry is amazingly long. I think I will blog about that list.. Thanks, God bless...
