Poe's Mistress

Poe's Mistress

A Poem by Whiskurz

Virginia walks where I cannot
The angels know her name
Where my name was is now a blot
My muse hands me the blame

I whisper love, she does not hear
She knows my heart tells lies
She listens with a cautious ear
And sees through my disguise

I try but cannot feel her pain
A mistress she shall stay
I try my best but can't explain
The demons I must slay

She hides my sin to no avail
The truth cuts like a knife
She knows that she will only fail
Name only, she's my wife

A mistress she will always be
I know it seems absurd
She'll ever be in love with me
But my love is the word

I think many poets have this problem. We live to write and put others second in life. I learned a long time ago to love deeply in reality and then write those worlds with words. Poe was a different character and struggled with many demons. Great write with the descriptions.

Simply put:you write good. The words fall effortlessly from the tongue and the rhyme is flawless. A pleasure to read.

It resounds with "never more" lonely and bursting with irrational intelligence. Great poem
