BEHOLD! … AS HE PARADES THE MOTLEY INCARNATIONS THAT DWELL WITHIN THE TWILIGHT OF HIS HAUNTED GOTHIC SOUL!
Gothic Twilight II is the fourth collection in J J Ginty's Dark Poetry series.
Pursuing on from the spectral dominions of Gothic Twilight (Dark Poetry, Volume 2). Here the author takes us on a less abstruse, easier to comprehend journey into the alternate, opaque apprehensions of everyday life, and its day-to-day experiences & insights. Represented throughout by his mysteriously unique view; exploring the memories, accounts, flashbacks, dreams, nightmares, … taken from his own personal involvements and observations. One could to say, it reads a bit like a poetic journal, of sorts.
The twenty-two poems herein are considerations and interpretations of various spiritual (or metaphysical) happenings, impressions, premonitions & intuitions. Covering topics such as: resurrection, rebirth, near death experience (NDE), the afterlife, God, Self, loss of Self, and the dichotomy of dualistic existence.
J J Ginty also speaks to us of love, loss, grief, friendship; appreciation, inspiration, influence, fantasy; fate, fear, anger, joy; mental disturbance; delusion, illusion and obsessive desire.
Some of the poems in this collection read like the psychotronic-memoires of an altered consciousness; where the reader is taken through the dipsomanic, drug-fuelled hallucinations and visions of J J Ginty's past (which do have a tendency to flashback into his present, everyday life, from time-to-time); thus leading to some pretty interesting juxtapositions on what life apparently is.
Enjoy this short read, while you take in the paradoxical-irony shared through J J Ginty's surreal & sardonic glimpses of Nirvana, Heaven, Hell, Purgatory; Life, Love, Damnation & Suffering. Coupled with his nihilistic & caustic glances at a hopelessly dysphoric and dystopian world future.
