Twist of the Kissed

Halloween Poem #14 (written on 10/13/2019 so really number 13.. how unlucky that I fell behind on posting like that….or as my little girls say.. “Or, did I?”)

Kingdom of Galanthus -Death Preacher

Twist of the Kissed
by Michael Romani

We prize the things most
When we've lost them
Soulless, ethereal as ghost
Our inner light grows dim

Nightwork spills its blood
Knowing so very little grace
Instead wallowing in the mud
Turned about on its face

Shadow falls from the window
With its hand pressed on the wall
Dark as death's true rainbow
We await the master's call

The house of the dark night
Lies in its tragedy of sight
Man and monster, both with a twist
Misguided love served so venomously kissed
