Stygian light (standard:poetry, 144 words)

daylight bad night good

amidst the stygian light i stumble and fight 

The harsh days phantoms and wraiths rake their ethereal claws on my

Their shrieks and their wails leave me twisted and paled 

how I long for my shell away the lights bright hell 

It's stygian light so harsh on my sight how I long for the night 

In turbinate blackness I'll heal and regain my lost zeal 

But the light will return setting me back one more turn 

One step forward two steps back all the while angels laugh at my back 

Blast this maledict light which harries my flight 

I must reach my shell there I'll be safe from this hell 

A shell born of gore where the light shines no more 

What a heavenly place where noone can see my scorched face 

Down into darkness I go where the heavnly Styx does flow
