`Kiss of Death`

`Kiss of Death`

A Poem by Fran Marie
"

Sonnet on killer storms,twisters,etc..

"

 

 

The raindrops kissed the Earth and whispered death

Shivers and chills engulfed my haunted soul

an icy phantom stole away my breath

in a vast stillness beyond my control

the winds howled like wolves hunting midnight prey

and thunder roared like a fierce lion beast

Powerless now as the lights went away

frozen in darkness I feared no release 

Oh! that the heavens would calm the storm

and dissolve such darkness of the tomb

vague raindrops turned to hailstones of death's gloom

this weeping nightmare of loss so forlorn

'Alas raindrops remain steady their course

with the kiss of death~having no remorse

This sent shivers down my spine. You have spun a great descriptive tale here. Very well done Fran. Threw me headlong into this creepy scenario from the first line.

"Powerless now as the lights went away

frozen in darkness I feared no release....."

Still shivering!!

Wow...this was quite a chilling write! The picture was a brilliant addition, as well, by the way.

I love the use of imagery here...the way that I can almost picture the cold air, the darkness, the storming skies. As for the form and the flow...you nailed it!

Nice imagery! Your words are very descriptive and powerful. The picture goes well with this piece. I really liked:
"the winds howled like wolves hunting midnight prey

and thunder roared like a fierce lion beast" Your comparisons are fantastic!

That was great and very descriptive. I love the way it ended also.

'alas raindrops remain steady their course
with the kiss of death~having no remorse'

Just awesome.

This was a nice dark piece. However the switch up on the rhyming for in the second stanza kinda took away from some of the niceness.
