Dark Temptation

By Intoxicating Delirium

I gaze through the door at the storm coming in
The shadows are growing, making me grin

I could only imagine their threatening sounds
In this quiet town which darkness surrounds

Stuck in this prison what I'd give to go out
Experience darkness without fear or doubt

No one explores this blissful bleak storm
Just me and my thoughts, I refuse to conform

I open the door and everyone stares
How could this girl face those nightmares

A new sensation, a sense of displace
Lures me in, this enticing embrace.

A feeling unexplored by a girl with such potential
The sinister sky is becoming influential

Another step is taken towards malicious temptation
This alluring darkness having no expectation

    At least the darkness is all embracing , non judgemental , accepting . The storms of life bring fresh cool winds of enviable change .Disdain for what is knowing there must be better .

  • A former member wrote: Very alluring and enticing, one wants to dive in there with you, or rather to go into such a room, within darkness, within the most sinister, but which also seems the most rebellious. Nice.

    You have an interesting duality here, between the darkness of the storm and the darkness of the forbidden path. I always enjoy when one set of words leaves two meanings to ponder. ~ I too love the storm. Here in Colorado we have been having heavy thunderstorms in the evenings in the evenings. Yesterday I sat on my deck, watching one such storm roll towards me, feeling its wind and hearing the thunder. Amidst this tumult is one place where I can feel a sense of wonder and peace. Perhaps it that the chaos outside then becomes a reflection of my emotions. - I look forward to experiencing your other works. Scholar

    Marvelous piece of work! This easy flow and rhyme is why I love poetry. A short piece that tempts you to see the story that could unfold, I absolutely love this! I can't wait to read more. Might you continue this story for us at some point? It would interest me to see where you would take her. I have trouble keeping a poem short, once I start my mind just explodes and the pen struggles to keep up. Thanks for writing this enjoyable poem!

    Thank you.

  • A former member wrote: very nice flow, i like the non traditional symbolism of the storm being a source of temptation rather than a chaotic destructor

    This is truly remarkable, and you say none of your works are good? You know what, all of our styles are unique my dear and you're no exception, besides that's the beauty of poetry, we all portray it differently. Keep up the great work, cause I need to read some more. Thank you for sharing and take care =)

    mostly love the flow.. but rhyme scheme should be a tool *you* use, not sommat that uses you... "sense of displace" feels forced, twould be "sense of displacement" does not appear to be a sylable count.. know ye of the daemons known as "feet": namely "iamb" "troche" and the rest of that foul ilk?

    Thanks, I just have this thing where it bothers me if a poem doesnt rhyme... I know that isnt right and there are alot of poems that are great that don't rhyme. It's just a thing I have, but deffinetly something I have to work on. Thank you for your comment! :)

    my own personal demon is the sylable count poem borrowed from the japanese, haiku (575) , and renku (57577) but i do break out of that occasionally ... was displace the only rhyme that woudl work with embrace and convey the thought? Scholar

    I'm not sure I'll have to look into that. I honestly didn't notice that it was off untill you mentioned it. You are right though.
