Devil (Micro Poem XV.)

A Poem by Beto

To sacrifice.

Micro Poem XV.

In the Palace of Rutile a king there dwells
who sits on a throne 'neath the shadow of bells
a choir  
           --of thousands--   
                                   piercing and shrill
for those  
              --who perished--
                                       to let him build
the Kingdom of Mold and let bloom finally
the Flower called Sin - his final victory
it may wither with him in barren depths
where lifeless bones greet squirming guests
Capella knows
                --his final will--
                                       by no-one understood.

I'm a poet for the most part, writing commentary and whatnot in a decadent style. Sometimes I'm proud of my work, sometimes I'm not, always looking for feedback. Inspirations; G. Orwell, R.W. Cham.. more..
