Broken memories. Twisted dreams.
Shattered hopes. Tortured screams.
These elements have given birth to a new society of dark poetry…
Turning dark cracks & broken fragments into golden seams of poetry
So come join us…
In the darkness…
If you dare.

To celebrate the launch of this Society we’re having a Grand Launch Bloghop of Dark Poetry – 21st July to 28th July, where we, Kintsugi members, will be posting dark poetry on our blogs and the Kintsugi Poets site. The theme for the Bloghop is Darkness, so be sure to check the main site and our linked blogs over this week to read lots of mesmerising poetical darkness J
This Bloghop launch of Kintsugi Poets is the perfect time I think, for me to show you some of the poetry I’ve written around the theme of the Dark Horde: from the already-published book of the same name and from the forthcoming musical story/album The Calling.
The Calling tells of the story leading up to the events in the novel The Dark Horde: a recording of Henry Wilcox’s final words where he reveals all. It’s not going to be out for a while yet, but if you basically imagine something like Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds musical, but instead a supernatural horror story and set to a “dark and epic heavy metal” soundtrack, with a narrator, guest characters and sung sections, then you’ll have the idea of what’s to come J
So here’s a taste of the madness to follow, with more to come over this week ….

Take my hand, render me blind
Hide from me the fear that grips my mind
I want to live, I want to be
No longer want to know nor want to see
For now my world's a dark void where no hope exists
And despite my efforts, only the dark persists
The Dark Horde will soon be victorious, that I clearly see
And then these words shall be all, all that's left of me
I wish to erase from my mind all I now know
Delude myself and forever dwell in truth's shadow
But I know it's useless, for our souls they've already won
So let these words be a warning of what's to come…
