Poetic Homicide

Poetic Homicide

A Poem by Chase Weik
"

A series of sensory Haikus tell a story of poetic homicide

"

Deafening silence

Left drowning in the absence

A subdued conscience


Put up quite a fight

The metallic taste lingered

Spit blood to the floor


Subtle vanilla

Masked by a pungent iron

Yet the candle burned


A swinger’s white dress

The pearly sequins glistened

Against crimson red


Maintain composure

Cooling blade, white knuckled grip

Unbreakable grasp

This is one of those works where in all honesty i'm not sure what it means. But in turn it doesn't really matter. The words are put together wonderfully and I still very much enjoyed it.

I like the third stanza
"Subtle vanilla
Masked by a pungent iron
Yet the candle burned"

Nice haikus Chase. The fourth was a favourite. The sequins glistening against crimson read. Very visual. Stay inspired. :)
