The lure of the macabre
Entices the soul to participate
In the lurid dance of nadir world
A ritual of decadent thinking
Twisting the entire narrative
Written with jagged edges
To bleed life with every laceration
A tyrant opposition wants to usurp
The kingdom of peace
Lure of the macabre is intense
Minds are seduced to surrender
Waiting for comeuppance©

I didn’t understand this poem. Are you talking about a book about horror ?
I cannot write poems but often try to read and understand poetry because I do wish I could write poems too. I know that you write extremely good, meaningful poems. This poem has a deeper meaning I think and I could not get it. Please could you explain ?
It’s about the lure of dark and in the process degradation of the soul, which leads to comeuppance. Dark desires and the thoughts of the tenebrous world.
