Castle Down

Castle Down

A Poem by Fréyjä Helvití

Alas! Embossed my castle to oblivion
Nor remnants of euphoric memories cease to exist
Cataclysmic misfortunes that fostered these foundations
As torments of morbidity surfaces to persist

Vines of time crept and conquered
Blossoming fruits hail not divine
And all its mirth had he devoured
Visions obscured by the cabbalistic sign

Upon these foundations one must deny
For all its beauty and all its grace
The unholy truth beneath that lies
An infernal faith one can’t efface

Gregorian chants, the unholy trinity
Blasphemous damnation God condemns
Shall you but compare His divinity?
A faith for only He who portends

Dear God for only whom I succumb
Mercy and redemption to Thee I beseech
Nor must I know what of my faith becomes
Least cast away the deceptive leech

Oh slaved prince I beseech thy becoming
Must I pray hard for thee to stay?
Were all praises to the One, the All knowing
Must He show me another way

You have such way with words that it is amazing. "Mercy and redemption to thee I beseech, Least cast away the deceptive leech." Brilliant. I've read your other works and they just get better and better. You have a talent. Keep that s**t up and i'll be reading your works in poetry books in the library. You got the gift. Do the damn thing ms. lady.

As your faith is questioned you lay the path for mercy, for redemption... I felt the heartbeat of this eerie piece.
Dark and intense, well penned!

Nor must I know what of my faith becomes. . . Wow there is a lot there. I will be mulling that over for awhile. Thanks for sharing.

Oh -- I once heard monks Gregorian chanting in the woods at night for cheese cake. True story.

LOL. That must be some good cheese cake. thanks :)
A wonderfully written piece. It certainly contains an unmistakable dark, almost biblical quality. Great job.

I knew I would like this. only flaw: all exclamatories need to be followed up with commas. And the KJ language too sometimes. I triple-checked forya
