Shades of Metaphor

I roar in nightly soar
Among my shadows metaphor
From mad to glad I wade
In and out its plaid of shade

Searching my murky dim
The working of my psyches whim
That hovers oer my bare
And bickers me with tricks ensnare

Contrariety of men
That cannot find an open glen
That wonders in the mist
Searching out their private gist

That hosts and bides their crime
Those ghosts that ride the sands of time
That guides me through this dwell
And tides me oer its fires hell

While I in hopeless nightly cry
Drawn and quartered a bed of why

I read this as a metaphor of the inner mind that is full of contradictions that can and will lead us astray.  Robert Jordan was correct to praise your talent.
