Sacrificial Rite

Sacrificial Rite

A Poem by TamiViolet
"

I'm in a place, not certain where

"

 

 

Her fate lies on a predestined canvas

Of muted red

Darkness speaks truth though

Gifts are silent

 

Blindly, she searches for the magical

Key that will finally
 Unlock

His lonely chamber


Her spirit is gentle,

Ready to disclose

The one she has loved

Forever...

 

'Drink the blood that has patiently

Dripped from my heart into
This Sacred Cask...

As you feel its warmth

Rushing through your veins

Know...

I love you'

 

Can he see beyond Time's Regal clock?

Lift the veil of that which separates

Logic and Passion?

Sight and Touch?

 

She's coming for him soon

 Possessing

The Key...

To his Rebirth

 

'Meet me at the bottom of the

Spiral Staircase'

 

Tears shed belong to him...

For him...

Reaching within the nucleus

Of an isolated cell

 

Love hurts that much

A black abyss

She descends

Answering to the Dark Moon's call

 

Discovering the deepest place

That eats away at her flesh

She'll sacrifice her life

For him...

 

If one moment...

His Eyes See

"She's coming for him soon

Possessing

The Key...

To his Rebirth"

Again, another masterpiece, you never cease to amaze me. You know I am a big fan of you, right? I can't wait when you, Dani, and I fiinish that collaboration poem, it will be sooo awesome!!

It 's always good to have your mind enlightened by others, ecspecially intelligent people on this site...and using themes or symbols, in your case, the Sacramental Wine Cask, makes the poem more interesting.

I still think you should publish a book of your poetry.It's smooth and flows well, and I really mean that.

I liked very much the blend of religious imagery and personal emotion that flowed through this tightly constructed poem... It had a certain dark mystery about it... At first 'Meet me at the bottom of the spiral stairs' seemed a surprising bathos but then the significance of descending under the moon became clearer. A painful and haunting piece of writing, enhanced by the strong images - even if the one at the bottom was a bit kitsch! Lovely job!
