Post Re: dark or weird poetry -> recommend

I started reading William Butler Yeats after listening to Agalloch's "A Poem By Yeats" .. pretty weird stuff, some of it is rather deep, not that I'm complaining.
I find Edgar Allan Poe has too many short stories and not enough poetry so I didn't bother spending $40 on his encyclopedia-sized collection of works.. although I still contemplate it. :P

When You Are Old - Yeats
"When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars."

maybe try Blakes Songs... they re not dark in the sense as Poe is dark but they sure are depressing
