Equilibrium...

Equilibrium...

A Poem by L4rn13
"

Still, could we never be free from the clutches of the magician that is love?

"
They sing sad songs of despair
But really they're stating the truth.
Their voices burn and the lyrics spew flames of scorched, raw feeling.
Like time travelling dragons stuck within the times of their past.
Still, could we never be free from the clutches of the magician that is love?
Colliding with illusion and striking emotion with such a forceful downward blow,
And the sword that is life,
Weighs every puppet down from the backstabbing that is the curse of violent negativity.
Nothing more can be done but to hope that the dragons will sing those songs of joy leaving the songs of ice and flame,
Coming together with the magician and removing his sword, giving every puppet in the world the crown and scepter of equality and the trophy of never ending peace.

I really like this poem! It's a lot more my thing than the soppy love poetry I typically come across on here... nothing wrong with love poetry but I just don't have a romantic bone in my body. Fantasy imagery and lively inner turbulence are much more my thing

Now I see "you". You're focused on a specific subject and you're consistent with the metaphors used. Free flow... Compared to your 'now' that is somehow structured and there are division of stanzas. I am not saying that your talent 'improved' and I'm not saying it 'declined' either. There are differences and I like both your past poetry and present poetry.

Poem from a Poet... I shan't befuddle your mind With poems of vampires Or quadruple signs, But rather rhythmful beats. For I am a poet And express through torn seams The stories of the heart,.. more..
