She became My Gallows

Written by Adam M. Snow


What of this!?

Her sweet madness beautiful as snow,

that by starlight, the rushes lean over her wide!

The intoxication of her insanity draws me close.

Her voice, calling out my name;

-haunting me.

 

The moonlight pours out upon her -

her wickedness is shown, who dreams with

 - a nest of mad kisses; a thousand years sad regrets.

She is my agony -

my cage -

my demise.

My loss of sanity is due her.

 

She is haunting,

such madness is this?

I cared nothing for all,

she is my breath, I can't live without.

My essence,

- sighing around her where the stars are sleeping.

The scented twilight, I hung there.

 

She became my gallows -

my wandering noose -

my demise -

the fall of a tragic poet.

She is the bearer of my heart, locked away;

I am nothing.

 

 

I am nothing

but a man locked in chains,

who bears no voice;

a victim to her madness

- her bitter sweet madness, beautiful as snow.

 

She stole my heart -

my voice -

my name.

I am her insanity as she is mine.

She left me, her ghost to wander

- sighing around her where the stars are sleeping.

The scented twilight, I hung there.

but you do still have a voice...even in madness, the words are so haunting in this...has that edgar a. poe feel to it...

i like that metaphor...she is my gallows...i am in her noose..and it is squeezing my pen dry---

but in my poetic death, there will be resurrection and the words sill come alive once more.

nicely written...

Intensely moving...shadowed with intoxicating bite and visceral empathy, the fallen often have fallen to such beauty, still the words weave within, enjoyed...

I like the word choice and the soft, dark chaos of this, Like a piano playing a black, twisted story instead of a happy tune.
Well done!

You're welcome. : )
Excellent!

I very much enjoyed reading this one. It reads as if written in a bygone age. And the story told, ah...Isn't that how it always goes when love is found and then lost?

I also loved the title drop. Those always get me.

Truly mesmerized by the depths of this piece. Still trying to climb my way out!
Thanks to the lines in Jacobs review, I may have a chance. :)

You have a voice in your words that I believe can not be silenced. Again you have my highest admiration.

Oh the madness that swirls though our minds like a whirling wind at the moment just before death, as we take our lastbreath..at the gallows. I love reading your poetry. It is unique.
