Gothic Poems

Gothic Poetry

You are a nocturnal being. A bona fide 'creature of the night'. Gothic Poems, a very special collection from the poets at My Word Wizard, reflect the many components of your Goth style.

Living in the shadows is what you do, preferring darkness to light. Black and crimson are not just your colors, they are your badge. People don't quite 'get' you. The Goth subculture is complicated, and perhaps they just don't care to understand.

Can the Goth culture really be defined? Most Goths would probably not wish to be pegged into any specific category. The range within the subculture is just too broad. Apart from the ubiquitous black clothing, Goths are fiercely independent. They are rebels from the conventional norms, and exhibit varied musical tastes and fashion sensibilities, dissimilar intellectual interests and vastly different occupations.

Goths are basically a social community. A rich fabric of individuals who identify with and like being with other Goths.

So although not everybody understands you, you are not about to change. You are living the life you choose to lead, in the only way you know how.

We hope you enjoy this lusty assortment of deep, dark poetry that reflects your utterly unique style and spirit.
