A Journey Into Nothingness

Poem by Warren Augustus de Guzman

Careening through the universe
Upon my steed of rhyme and verse
A wretched poet’s fated curse
O such a state, there is non worse

Careening through the fated skies
Upon my cloud of silent cries
A wretched poet’s odd surprise
O such a consolation prize

Careening through the lurid seas
Upon my school, a fishy breeze
A wretched poet’s screaming plea
O such a fright, a pool of worry

Careening through the blackest night
Upon my feet I walk upright
A wretched poet’s sacred plight
O such a thing, the great, good fight

Careening through the lurid lake
Upon my boat of crows and stakes
A wretched poet’s painful fate
O such a multifaceted ache

Careening through my sullen mind
Upon my plane of thoughts I bind
A wretched poet, dumb and blind
Upon my soul, entombed, enshrined.

    When a poet journeys into nothingness, they find all kinds of thoughts wrecking havoc
    with fate. Great depiction of a poet's walk through life. Loved it. Thank you for sharing.

    Very nice. I liked the imagery and how it was consistent. You earned a ten on this one!
