My dearest diary,
I come again in darkness
it envelops me
skeptical thoughts abound
solicitous in their intended havoc
they wander aimlessly
locked inside truth
my lost soul, the freeloader,
destined for damnation
I personify chaos
in the transmutation of reality –
his, mine, love’s
so it turns:
the raven becomes a pigeon
shitting on everything
hour passes hour
crazy . battles reason . battles faults
death by insomnia.

Nicely done…and sounds like those oh so common Dark night’s of the soul.
Insomnia is a dirty mistress lol!
Total honesty in a diary is as essential as keeping an accurate score card in a game of golf. If one strays from the path, in either endeavor, he or she is only cheating his or her self.
I trust you garnered extra points for writing this in the present tense.
I cheated once in Solitaire. It was a hollow victory.
And I guess the extra points are up to Martien lol!
We do enjoy darkness. 8 points Earthling
I do enjoy walking on the Dark Side every now and then. Thanks, Martien 🙂
You have to look at yourself honestly but also with perspective, an interesting form also
I read that the Poet this form is named for was teaching his students a Haiku but couldn’t remember the form correctly, thus this one was born.
Love it, Dollface!
Thanks, dollface 💗
