Coloured insanity (Nonet)

by - Mr. Darcy   Sep 8, 2008

Suffering pictures bleed black and white,
Visions now ebb from waking sight.
I feel the sun warm my skin,
Cleansing knives once within.
But darkness transforms
To coloured storm,
Clawing pain;

M. Moran

A Nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables,
the second line eight syllables, the third line seven
syllables, etc... until line nine that finishes with one
syllable. It can be on any subject and rhyming is optional.

    You did a wonderful job on this form of poetry. The emotions seem to cry from the page. Leaving the reader with painful visions. Word choices and imagery are terriffic.

    This poem is excellent. I loved each line. It is sad. This sadness almost scares me. The dark side of us, kept hidden from others... This side exists in all of us. Some of us deny it, some of us show it openly, someone keeps it as a secret.

    Flow was great and I like the dark theme.

    Thanks for introducing a new form of poem.
