Untitled Poem #2 (This Nightmare Of Idleness) - Poem by Tania Allen

this nightmare of idleness
sceptre of my deception
brings hollow promises to deafen me
reckoning the agony of dreams lost

mists enshroud the imps at play
this nightmare of idleness
calls them to my circle
where darkness battles light to an uneasy impasse

revelations of untold agonies
saught in the quietude of the witching hour
this nightmare of idleness
stalks the creatures of my soul

wretched Scythian heroes
setting off in chase of an errant hare
whilst I sit in docile contemplation
this nightmare of idleness
