Inferno of Blood
A Night of Wonder pt. IV
I will tell you the truth now.
I suffer from phantom memories.
Of a woman that loves me.
Of a woman that stands me near.
Of a woman that is dead.
Yet she exists in real life.
In the shades, appearances, and personality of many.
EYES OF THE VOID FILLED WITH THE SOUL OF A DEAD

I am getting the obvious here, I need to read more of your previous work to get the rest of this. Intriguing.
Yes, there are certain common themes and threads throughout my poetry. It would really benefit if you read some of them but I think reading all “A night of wonder” poems will be enough 😉
Is there a specific way to read the (what adjective should I use here?) … unusually-spaced words? 🙂
Well , yes, it was a sentence (or two) that I just scrambled. But the content is not important, it’s the structure and how it looks 😉 so don’t worry about it. It’s just mean to symbolise the disjointed and plagued mind of the narrator.
She is coming back in several of your poems, raising questions among your readers.
Questions you don’t have to answer of course.
So different from my texts, yet I enjoy them a lot.
Thank you! Yes they are quite different from your poems (which I love!). The woman in question is based on a protagonist in Project 1 which I’ll write more about later. Though I didn’t realise it was her until I reread all “A night of Wonder” poems in a row. It’s a funny thing what a creative person’s mind can do and what tricks it can play on its master.
you are seeing very clearly in this and the earlier poem, it is not necessary to explain because words can sometimes drown, but the desire to be understood may be strong, its alright !
Thank you for your comment! It is true. There’s always a wish by the poet that his or her work needs to be understood and thus may oversimplify certain parts or outright explain it. I always prefer to have my poetry shrouded in mystery so my readers will keep guessing – though sometimes it can be quite hard to write such a piece.
this piece intrigues me … :-), I enjoy reading this piece at the same time tracing the words very refresh…
