Dark Gothic Heart

Dark Gothic Heart long poem

Uploaded by Mario Vitale

I look to the sea
viral implications take me to the surf
along the rocky ledge leads to an old abandoned house
you hear the intense pounding of the waves outside
a cobblestone walkway lines the entrance to the inclosure
the limestone permeates the small structure
a creeky door open to plants inside having moss
an old woman perched in her rocking chair begins to speak
“My name is Martha I’m the owner of this home & I will tell you your future,
you have a dark gothic heart with a temper that is unmatched.”
Suddenly a black cat thunders through the home with a screeching noise
Martha continues,” The devil lead you to this home in search of blood for tormented souls,
you have been given a gift with an aura of sophistication”.
At that the woman said nothing more but pointed at the door
Outside in the back of her yard were skulls lining the main exterior
I couldn’t take it any more so I ran so fast to a nearby stream
Looking into the water I then saw my mere reflection
I was left to wonder what the old woman really meant
a figure moved to help me gain my composure
of that of a hunch back creature having viscous fangs that bite dripping blood off side
Again I ran away to hide frightened
At last a nearby meadow with a clearing sought me to venture further
It was then I realized the true message of my gothic heart
a cool breeze calmed my spirit & soul
noting that love was the mere essence of my existence
I sat alone & collected my thoughts
