You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with. -Wayne Dyer
Leading those who have followed a greater leader without knowing what it is you are doing is the same as wielding a sword against a master of weapons. -Kreepy

Ancient decaying beauties
Tortured by insufferable gloom
With black and lurid agitation
They rot in their own sorrow.

The cunning phantasmic illness
Reeks of extensive decay.
With cadaverous lapses in centuries
The pallid bitterness sinks
Into the intricate web-like darkness.

Encrimsoned passion struggles
In phantasmagoric terror.
Where the tattered body lay nervous

In this mansion of gothic sickness.
The Miraculous luster of the eye
Reflects the icy tar of ebon blackness.

Pestilence hides in the shadowy fancies of the heart.
And the bleak desolate softness
Dulls the fabric of reality.
Yet in the end the trees liquefy
Into the bitter mystique.
Their screams echoing soundlessly
From unredeemed dreariness.
Formed by the melancholy gloom of the day.

Taking words from the works The Fall of the House of Usher I put together a poem. Contemplate and enjoy the meaning behind this one.

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, so long as one remembers to turn on the light.

First of rather dark and dreary, and second, not to be wierd here but, TOO MANY BIG WORDS!!!!!! I mean, it sort of goes with the theme here,but I had to guess on what some words meant. Overall it was pretty good but keep in mind that simplicity is good in a poem too.
