The Nightmare And The Chaos Raven Sent Into Poe's Poetic World

The Nightmare And The Chaos Raven Sent Into Poe's Poetic World Waking into delusions of long dead rainbows and slow dying clouds hard fallen mountains, enchanted winds and long black veiled shrouds echoes of vanity, time that spawned whimpers of daring deceits ice castles in deserts of despair, stone sandals on thorny bled feet. Wherein lies fantasy, audacity of damnation and epic defeat spilled blood and prophecy by ghosts of favors that lie to cheat weeping dawns, roosters whispering beyond midnight cuts and cries O' graveyard shadow, why beg to dance below saddened moonlit skies? Days gasping into rivers of destruction and great clawed beasts sunsets eating into valleys hiding banquets of fresh blood feasts Alas! Shall ever those accursed verses of Poe this lost soul feel or horror from agonizing loss as Love from heart burns to steal? Pregnant pause, shrieks of arrogance and golden follies of mankind circles of smoke and eternity within galaxies of devilish minds ancient such wanderings into forbidden realms and Raven's abode seas of lonely and the travesties of stories never to be told! Waking into delusions of dead rainbows and slow dying clouds Wherein lies fantasy, audacity of damnation and epic defeat Days gasping into rivers of destruction and great clawed beasts Pregnant pause, shrieks of arrogance and golden follies of mankind! R.J. Lindley, Dark Rhyme, Nov-3rd 1974 (Tribute To Poe And His Many Magnificent Dark Poems ) Beyond the curve of Time, Space and Lost Horizon
