A ghoul seeks my December, subtly, secretly, seethes (Poetry narration)

C

A ghoul seeks my December, subtly, secretly, seethes,

It wants my soul and my very anguished end, charcoal flames in an otherworld,

By my grave, it breathes in deep, my death scent, it awaits, it adores the thought,

Of the inevitable easy decay... of my ways, it so very delightedly brays,

- to waste and edible death paste, it whispers away.

It is already a creature of death's final say.

And in the passageway, to my chamber's bed,

Awaits a foul ghost, a phantom spirit,

A soul split in many tortured horrible death tarred ways,

Angered by my stay, and by my living breath.

Glacial presence, haunts the summer haze,

And upon the clouds, heaven is amiss,

Dragons fight in the darkening white shades,

Their breath's discharge, smoke, like clouds of snow and rain,

And a Fomorian beast, meets the Celtic Gods with ease,

As Ra and Oden come out to seek.

Shades trace the way to Hades,

As the devil's widely grinning creatures grin, with glee, bray, moan, precipitate.

And demonically, in the darkest fathom of the gloaming,

Sometimes my mind does striate, upon the darkness, a pattern of unfaith,

As diabolic wraiths do fly, sour and ply the inevitable fate.

But logic divides dreams, and imagination it does mitigate,

And for the most part, the preternatural fears of primeval man exert latent, unspoken stress,

Are but a wisp, hidden in lurid night terrors, of humanity's intermittent sleep.

And I awake, to praise the bright African sun,

Awaiting a life, surely of love, affection, to be won,

And after death, a heaven perhaps,

But preternatural fears of primeval man exert latent, unspoken stress,

And many inhabitants of this earth, blame and wildly gesticulate,

Whatever it is, we are powerless, it certainly awaits.

And one day, we will know,

Or we will merely lie dead and emptily decay.
