Read Poem: Tall Spurs and Placid Lake, by Joydeep Nath

Genre: Dark

her own secret haven
a black hole of tall spurs and a placid lake
a trail there she only knew
her own mad-house
she came to cry at
muffled and stifled
her silent streams of tears
trickled night after night
the lake owed itself to her eyes

what pain filled her
and what loss marred her
they all wondered
the tall spurs and the placid lake

a night to celebrate at the black hole
the desolate queen has appeared hooded in white
the full moon shines to show her
a trail she only knew so well
they all watch enraptured
tall spurs and the placid lake

she has come to end her sorrows
and to bury the black hole
once and for all
the lake that owes itself to her
braces to welcome her
inch by every inch of her white shroud
as she wades into her own tears
what shall remain is her puffed up hood
a bloated reflection of the full moon

the black hole slowly closed on itself
as their lady whispered her untold secrets to them
the tall spurs and the placid lake
