Default [WAR XI] Dusk Delusions [Judged]

Darkness opens the mind to fear, fire opens it to illusion. Light doesn't always clear the situation up; at the right angle it can throw the mind into chaos and result in just as much destruction as the black of night. It is in this logic this poem was created...Short and simple, but it encompasses the delusions the brain often throws us into and the interesting results.

A poem need not be long, so long as it delivers the message hidden within its folds effectively. Believe me, this poem has a great amount of symbolism within it...Both obvious, and not. Read it a few times, and come up with your own ideas of what it represents.


Dusk Delusions

Flickering softly in the light
A ghost, a ghoul, a demon in the night
Creeps ever closer with its might
Easily able to stay out of sight

(In a world swallowed by dusk)

Shapes that take on the form of dreams
Swirling gently in a mist of ease
Sharply turning into the screams
Caused by the approach of nightmare bees

(Every day the living dance with death)

Fear pricks sharp as a sting
Children wail as they desperately cling
All caught up in a deadly ring
Terribly frightened by the Thing

(Slowly turning the body to husk)

It shifts and turns, changing shape
Forming into monsters of evil and wit
Story playing out like a ripped up tape
Terror throwing sanity into a fit

(Carelessly sucking away its breath)

All hope falls into the black
Cooped up into an unholy sack
Pinned shut by a cryptic tack
Shoved onto a silent rack

(Falling into insanity is a risk)

Just as darkness seems to win
Something great stirs in the mind
Casting out the doubtful sin
Bringing with it happiness in kind

(Clarity is occasionally lost in confusion)

For in light there is always hope
Casting into the dark a safety rope
Saving the victim from a slippery slope
Helping the innocent soul to cope

(The agony, however, may be turned brisk)

Waking from the weary haze
Watching the fire snap at the branch
All that panic from a tired daze
Induced on a rustic camping ranch

(If you can break the grand delusion)

So this tale ends with insight
Showing illusion and its might
Never fear the shadows of the night
Cast into the living by the torchlight
