Soldiers of Death

Soldiers of Death

A Poem by Dark Beauty

Through the twilight hours
soldiers of death march
along the rivers of blood and decay
stars do not shine down
and only thorny bushes remain

Mighty wings glisten with pleasurable pain
images howling in the barren winds
whispers of nightly creatures
heard in the ringing of bells

Soldiers of death march on
routine list checked
hands of these shadow demons
grip tight
laying all life to rest

I LOVE THIS IDEA!!! You created amazing imagery and the flow was perfect. I can't find anything that I would fix about it. I love the concept and the mood and morbidness is grabbing. Over all...this was sick!

A dark poem. I like the use of the Soldier of death. Allowing the reader to see a vision that is real and possible. I like the description and story in the poem. Thank you for the excellent poem.

Dark eerie piece you have penned why do shadows get such a bad reputation lol. Sounds like someone hurt you bad and left you facing the nights alone doubting yourself. Sometimes the shadows are a place to hide oneself while they heal or while they plan their revenge lol. Keep em' coming

Reminds me of the battle between Hell and Heaven as described by the non-canonical, yet Biblical books. Apocryphal in other words.

I am linking you poetic output as of late, sorry I have not been able to comment on them all, but I read while at work and sometimes I get called away in a moments notice, but I did want to drop a line and let you know I am liking this!
