Goth poems

Goth poetry is easy: all you need is rhyming couplets and the words ‘dark’, ‘soul’, ‘night’, and ‘black’. Past that you get bonus points for the inclusion of ‘abyss’ and any classical mythology reference you can think of. Bear in mind that the classical reference doesn’t actually have to make sense, only to fit in the rhyming scheme. Let’s try this:

Oh my soul,
Lost in a hole,
Of darkness and melancholy,
Like the dress on a depressed dolly,
Raging in the abyss,
My anger I miss,
Like Eve’s first kiss,
That is my heart’s wish.

Hurrah for Goth poems!
