The Coming of Lillith

The Coming of Lillith

A Poem by TamiViolet
"

something a little different

"

 



 

the silvery moon softens me
I dance in her waning shadows
a veil removed, unable to follow
Time reveals a phantom queen

I am the crow as I come and go
in the midnight hour I am free
smoldering fires beckon me
silhouettes, black mirrors I know

She offers mocha agate to heal
embracing renewal with energy
she caresses with fingertips, gently
whispering,
                        ‘don’t think, just feel…’

Author's Note

TamiViolet
I'm practicing with structure, folks. Tried to look up the form for this piece but couldn't locate it although the rhyme scheme is a-bb-a. Please be gentle as I'm new to this particular form,, and it can be quite tricky. Lillith is the goddess of darkness in addition to being a beautiful flower that thrives only in the dark. Thanks for reading, my friends.

I think that you are able to take your topic and really apply it to your form. This piece feels organic to me. It brings me images of The Raven in reference. I think you may be able to move the final line of the poem even with line twelve to make it a little more uniform. Overall this is a very striking piece that does it's subjects justice.

I was struck by this piece - particularly by the title - and then by your photo that you attached - I am not really good at structure - so I cannot comment on that - but I liked the imagery that you portrayed in this piece - there are some great words and metaphors used here - so,,,,

I loved the flow, the rhyme. The a-bb-a form might not have been fully correct (except the 2nd stanza). But, surprisingly, the non a-bb-a stanzas are very beautifully rhymed! (may be because of the ending words like 'queen' and 'feel' :) )

I also loved the used of metaphors and the adjectives used throughout your poem.

Seek to find the rhyme, in ABBA... {I chuckle} ;)

Mmm, there is much to the story of Lillith of the first worlds creation,
as her beauty was too perfect to reflect, not, but wonder to behold. In a nights season, beyond reason... where passions played. Eternal. The fragrance of her blossom, like a sirens song. Lay waste... the senses.

Cool rendition... "don't think, just feel," it's cadence. Darkly delicious!

Can't critique the form as I'm no poet. However I thought it was a great story. Poor Lilith received such a bad rep by a bunch of old men. The poem set the correct mood for such an ode...very nice work.

I think you should write more poems about persephone-type characters! Very underwordldy, awesome.

Hi Appolonia .. been too long.. this is wonderful reading.
I think the form is fine .. i am sorry i know little of forms..

But the words I do ... and this is wonderful , especially the last line..

"don't think, just feel"

Good advice.

I like this a lot, especially since you're playing with form. I -hate- writing in form but I think it's something every serious poet needs to try, the restrictions of rhyme and meter will eventually open a whole other world of writing. Very good imagery also.
