Lord Belial sought me today,
And said he would lead me astray,
I turned around then walked away,
To him I would have naught to say.




Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937): Dreamer of the Dark. Illustration: Dave Carson

In sombre mist,
With sober wit,
Truth in all sobriety,
Lies in null felicity.

Hidden in full cloth,
Mask in hidden pith,
Disturbing only in mind,
Never thy heart bind.

What lies dead,
Dreaming of dread,
Lightly I tread,
Awaken only on bed.

Blaring verve,
Rippling my nerve,
As I observe,
She’s at the curve.

As I stay morose,
They clasp in eros,
Blissfully engross,
In heavenly cosmos.

As mind aching,
Putrid belching,
Heart bursting,
I’m drifting.

One lunar cycle await,
As time ebb and abate,
Stagnate till that date,
Weighing the fate.

Disillusioned by devotion,
Scarred with friction,
Inundated with caution,
I shun with gumption.

Lash the hounding sleuth,
I bear the sooth,
Dash with uncouth youth,
I bare the truth.
