From the Pocket of a Dream

*incubus*

somewhere
          within ruins
                         they still lie
withered roses
in the dust of memories

all dried
        yellowed
                   as a piece of an old parchment
wrinkled of the time that had crushed them
with its stones
                    of pain

all dead
yet
still scourging
            loading guilt
                   upon the shoulders of night

a need to rest
        to flee from the darkened corridor
                                                            of mind
from an incubus
                    in a threat of smashing
                                            one fragile
                                                      precious
bowl of happiness

    Hi Jennygoth! small world.

    I was just passing through, kicking links from that Undead Poet Society which appears to be more dead than alive and stumbled on your Incubus poem. Nice work, I think it’s better than mine. Certainly an easier read; mine is more of a ballad.

    You have a nice blog here.

    I am taken by the roses in parchment and the crushing like stones …
    The disturbing stress of an incubus…it leads my imagination to dark places.
    Another great poem my friend.

    Yes, it’s always there … always … the phenomenae of incubus and/ or succubus. What a magical and unsettling thought for any human being, and the never ending source for poetry … like yours, my lovely friend eclipse. Blessed be, cat.

    Roses are the flower we so often use in love and in sadness in remembrance and celebration .. .. Beautiful poem Eclipse.. Did you know that roses too when dried can act to dispel negativity? So all the roses I have had given I save and dry and use as potpourri… that way as I mingle them within the crystal bowl, I remember all the happy times when I was given them.. For their parchment petals hold still the scent of their gift… Dreamwalker xox
    Much love for a Happy Weekend.. x

    An incubus…. not a very nice thing to have happen in your dreams or, in your mind at all.
    I hope this incubus doesn’t smash anyone’s happiness.
    Lovely, dark, thoughts though.

    I really liked this one since I am going through things. Though a little hard for me to read with the type of format you chose. Still, another exceptional piece of dark poetry.

      Of course, I am in a spiritual battle with a Succubus…
