What lies within the dark corner of a poet's mind? (Form: Trijan Refrain)
Behind The Door

Unconsciously, behind the door
in depths devoid of light,
lay festered thoughts which I abhor.
How darkly they incite.
Their strange perfume beguiles the mind
as they appear before eyes blind.
    Their strange perfume.
    Their strange perfume
releases darkness unconfined.

Unconsciously, behind the door
that each of us erects,
lies evil blackness that we store
from which the door protects.
Sonorous calls harshly transcend;
the heart can no longer defend.
  Sonorous calls.
  Sonorous calls
find voice within the poet's pen.

Unconsciously, behind the door
the demons in me grow.
Their whispered voices reach a roar
as knowledge they bestow.
Cascading ink and words implore
through images I can't ignore.
  Cascading ink.
  Cascading ink
congeals upon a paper shore.
