Forever Hers

Forever Hers

A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)

__Forever Hers__

 

Bittersweet nightly ritual

sips her blush red wine spiritual

Fills his glass strikes a gentle tap

Rings as she settles by his chair

“For you my love” her soft voice cracks

A tear falls as she twists her hair

feeling his brush strokes glide her back

pulling her close his chest layed bare

a pause to scent her “raven black”

 holding her watching the flames flare

she peers at his glass pon the mantel

outstretched arms layed on empty seat

hand unfolds a poison ampul

“to sleep love” rising to her feet

fragile steps to bed she ambles

To lay next her dear deceased

his face twisted dried and mangled

a crease in his skull in relief

lays a dry blood stained axe handle

“forever” her final sigh breathes

This sort of reminds me of a yarn that David Lewis Paget would weave. A tale macabre with a twist at the end. It's like ash in the hearth. I particularly like the "raven black," as I look up to the raven on my wall. https://www.designtoscano.com/product/the+ravens+perch+wall+sculpture+-+ng34872.do?sortby=ourPicks&refType=&from=Search

I love this poem . . . very sensual & appealing to all the senses. Your words draw the reader in like a magic elixir. Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I'm a little slow on tackling my reading list these days. Autumn is just too gorgeous here (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

if we're piqued to write dueling poems from this, I'll leapfrog to the burgh & kiss yer a*s!

Yikes, what an ending. Macabre yet sad too. You've got the Halloween spirit floating around you early. Beware. :)

Nice one.

a dark sadness to this...memories in a glass, ashes to dust, ashes to rust...but her longing for him will never rust. Love the mood of this.

Yeah Mum likes it you can use it I you want it:)
I love how little you had to write and yet you still managed to describe the scene so vividly. Your story is unexpected, riveting, and pulls whatever darkness that lies within the reader to the surface.

Twisted..... I like the way you introduced her as a lover and then go on to build a story that falls far away from the readers expectation....
