NaPoWriMo ~ Day 9 ~ Delirious Horror ~

Today I challenge you write a poem  ~~inspired by noir — it could be in the voice of a detective, or unravel a mystery, or just describe the long shadows of the skyscrapers in the ever-swirling smog. After all, “you know how to write a poem, don’t you, Steve? You just pick up a pen and you write.”

Delirious Horror

A piercing strident scream
blasted the glass of the vaulted dome
drops of dark crimson blood dappled
the colored window panes,
thousand glittering cutting
pieces scattered jewel like
on the marble floor,
pitched the delirious horror
into pleated mental frames,
panic emitted further moans
and sonorous groans
futile were the efforts to
cover the sinful shames’
repetitively, reignited burning air
seeming to cool,yet sizzling again
kept the agony eternal in lasting pain
Who to Call? Who to Blame?
Who will help when words fail?
Who will hold the Holy Grail?
All Time, No Time gone with a swish
suffering may go if you truthfully wish
Come Come Come, be honest be good
Leave the shell , walk straight away
from Hell
The Truth The Truth Tell’ Tell’
