Styx River

Conquered by the circumambient incandescent
We are impuissant to all illumination
Its conflagrant presence remains incessant
The Mother's diurnal course without reincarnation
Purity of white, in its bright obsolescent
Beauty transmogrified to incarceration
Destitute to substance of atramentous
Yearning for just an ounce of clandestiness
Reverse fear of aura that is portentous
The cosmos suffocating, attempting solace
Abyss of chaos, our species remains apprentice
Our essence, Yang without Yin, remains starless

It was over my head.
When you are telling a story whether be poetry or short story in nature, but must make the reader they are part of your write and you must use words that invite the reader to come in and feel what they are part of your poem. You should use plain simple language for reader. Remember the reader comes in all forms of education and you must invite all and not some. The nevertheless, keep writing and don't be discouraged. I am only trying to help.

actual no matter what you write a writer usually writes for themselves and no matter the meaning of their words they can all be inter. differently. Each writer has their own style and most people do not understand shakespeare without help yet he remains one of the greatest writers.

i feel like the garbled prose obscures any message..  what is clandestiness?  this pretentiousness will alienate your readers, and  and reaks of "thesaurusism".
