Gloom: Master, can I become fair?

A lugubriousness, before this poem you were!
A cheerfulness, you have not been!
A desolation, you are!
An attenuation, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
To gloom I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like blackness
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using darkness

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Just like the doldrums,
they're sorrowfully gloomy.
Neither apt nor blithe!
A spleen, anger or choler.
Being dull, dingy or drab.

Can I lend a meter, delivered so beings might see
Terse inviting abstracts, plainly imparting, and oh how divulged free?
Sorrow or glooms feel all too absolute. But is cluster?
Dejection, grief? - or darkness, glumness? Oops! I neglected clutter!
I reason obscurity and therefore blackness, but rightly ought I
- paste concepts so - allusions drafted with computers spry?
