OctPoWriMo 2019: Day 1: Dark Night of the Soul

Awakening from our dream of love, we see that once again
The dark night of the soul descends

Bleakness that no shiny happy folderol can end
Chaos reigns instead

Doubt descends to destroy
Every beautiful thing
Found in its path

Ghouls dig into the graves
History is unearthed

Incapable of believing

Morning rushes away
Night descends 

Old fears
Prey on us in the pitch black of our doubts

Regret overtakes 
Soul fire ignites the last vestiges of hope

Tragically, certain ill-advised words cannot be

Vain tears cannot
Win back what was tossed aside

Xenos we are
You fly away

Zeroing the light in my heart


Couldn't leave without giving credit to the amazing Amy Winehouse for the inspiration.
