In Black Fire

In Black Fire

A Poem by Katannaism

One of my works that filled my boredom and free time. My way of venting.

He who hath thrown me in this pit;
Of Black Fire.
That burn'st my canvas into dust. 
O' tis bewitching beauty that once;
Promised thy love, thy heart. 
Now turned on me;

O' the once sweet breath I longed to inhale. 
Now a poisonous reminder;
of an unbearable pain.
That would smite me to the Earth. 
And there let me bleed. 
The plague infused with hate.
Dispute. Anger. 

Now thou hath come to beat me down;
And bury me in the Earth's bosom. 
Set it ablaze. 
And there let me rot. 
And Die. 
My soul sucked out of this shell. 

And you, like the Darkness-
swallowed me whole. 
And ripped my heart in two.
With that diamond of yours.
A dagger. 
Hands of iron and ice. 

O' sweet hath your words be;
that hath taught me to love.
And to believe. To hope.
Have faith. 
In the Love Eterne. 

Shall I ask why;
And how;
has this curse been laid upon me?
This never ending suffering and pain-
With the knowledge of a dispute.
That hath put me in this situation. 

So I ask you this;
The two I yearn to ask. 
And do answer me, my love-
And why?...

Wow that's beautiful

I'd be curious to hear his answer. Ha This was a really good piece of poetry. It harkens back to the middle ages when knights roamed the countryside. Great word choice and emotion throughout. Nice job.

An excellent form of venting, and if this is just to fill free time you have an excellent career in front of you. Contructed beautifully, flows very well.

Beautiful agony. Great read and write
