The Kings wrath

The Kings wrath

A Poem by Jason

 

Daggers and defeat looms ‘neath my dwelling,
The damsel once stood my bride, pure and fair;
But now she must consort with death instead;
Lying in her filth at the bellows of the lair,
 
She screams as the pendulum does swing;
And sings its rhythmic shrill, closing still-
Blood drips off the edge of the blade,
As she forbade the truth, hiding her youth,
 
“Certainly!” He does announce aloud,
As he smirks and as he gazes and holds proud,
“The harlot leaves nothing left for shame!”
and she silences, and surrenders to the game,
 
“She is the exemplar of all life that is knavish-
Does she have any final declarations that we may hash?”
(As the blade now a double swing from slashing)
"I bare not only your child, but the truth that I am also your child."
     And this truth, did not set him free.

Aauuggghhh! I am hurt, and I am touched! This poem doth speaketh words so dark, and foul, and tough for the bone's skin to hold up to. That such an imagery, which sparked with vivid, trembling imagery and irony could so be brilliant to read through. Not even the great English poems of Coleridge could stand up to this light. Damn!

OOH! Almost like an answer to the one I wrote, or like mine is an answer to yours. Very chilling and wrenching. Nicely done. :) Great minds think alike, at least a little. ;)

So dark & beautiful! I love how it ends, as always you deliver a punch-in-the-stomach, "WHAT?" ending. This is also going on my list of faves. Bravo. :]

But now she must consort with death instead;
Lying in her filth at the bellows of the lair"

Whoah! I like this, it's weird and unique which is always refreshing! It kept me guessing and reading even though it was short.

Nice revelation at the end....shocking, for sure. I like the urgency contained within the brevity of this poem...so much said in a fairly short poem, and tons of action. Nicely done.
