Owl Poetry & Prose

A lament of the conscience…

Penned in darkness

Surrounded by madness

What thoughts do crowd my troubled mind?

Is one so ruthless that it lies latent

Covered up by lies, whiles and smiles?

Was I so blind to see

That which I always knew to be

Based on my own antiquity

In believing good triumphs evil ultimately?

But what if tis possible

That a person be capable

Of cruelty & indifference

Goading others by preference

A sadist at heart, a beautiful tart

Destined to destroy

All things that give joy?

An insidious serpent

Who is never repentant

Driven by pleasure & leisure

Passion & ambition

On a path of destruction burning down all obstruction

One who cannot lucidly see

That darkness which lies latent within thee

Has slid like a shadow & slithered around

Devoured the goodness & any light that abound

Till all that remains inside is a gaping black hole

A dead star believing it can control

The depth of darkness that pierces its soul
