* My Gothic Poem

* AWAKENING
 
... almost blinded by the bluish mist...
my eyes SEARCH
for a restful place.
my  bare feet, almost bleeding,
stagger on the stony path
that leads, unknowingly, to Y-O-U...
and  then I see IT
your CASTLE
moonlit and bathed in silver...
Like in a nightmare-dream
I walk towards it...
with uncertain steps
I knock on the door...
Y-O-U open it...
your body, clothed in a brownish tunic,
your face, HIDDEN behind a concealing hood
and T-H-E-N...
you unveil IT,
your FACE!
strange, and  yet so b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l
AT THE SAME TIME...
your eyes of  ice
MELTING in my eyes of fire
my hands touching your hands
                                        (never touched before...)
my fingers caressing your forehead
                                        (never caressed before...)
my breath blowing away, one by one,
all the SAD MEMORIES that still
LINGER on your mind...
and then, your smile SHOWING
FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME...
and then
your feelings,
lying dormant for quite a long, long time,
A W A K E N I N G!
no need to fear now...
I am < here>
your SUFFERING is OVER!
 
Awakening was written while listening to "Broken" by Seether...

* LET...
 
Let them fall
black as a starless night...
my TEARS!
let it drip
bathing the white snow in red...
my BLOOD!
let it stop
my TIME!
S-m-e-l-l it!
the stench of my rotting corpse!
Hear it!
my VOICE no longer sweet but forever D-E-A-D!
let them HAUNT you!
my SCREAMS in the deadening night!
F-E-E-L IT!
the touch of my withering skin!
LET ME
D-I-E
a thousand deaths in this LIFE!
 
"Let" was inspired by Miss Havisham (Great Expectations - Charles Dickens) and created while listening to the excellent Heaven's a Lie by Lacuna Coil. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixxtnrWb17Y)
