Segregated Contemplation

Segregated Contemplation

A Poem by Tomislav Petricevic

Venture inside the well of broken bones

Lurking await the skulls of fallen kings

From biting cold or sickness in their breath

Comes a shout filled with poignant memories


Murmur of death foretold the morning star

His burning vengeance unleashed with raging wrath

Chaos inflicted onto the world of selfish man

Whose lust had driven through the borders of maligned


Greed prevailed through the days of demise

For even in plague the scoundrel dreamed of troves

Prayer in pain to quench the blackened tongues

One hand to sky, one hand to hold the hoard


Struck and thrown to the dirt where they belong

Purification of pieces that remained

Soon none were left to witness cleansed expanses

As all were swallowed by their own woeful filth


The well still craves for anguish torn deliverance

Scriptures wake with dread engulfed in lust

Their blood remains a warning to observe

Of hanging threads that bind the mortal fates

Thank you! :D
I was attracted by the title of this verse... the first stanza gets the reader involved... the way you convey the words of a dark place of times past... the second begins the story line... the third give us more of his passion for greed and pillage... the fourth describes the fall... the last just seals this verse:

The well still craves for anguish torn deliverance

Over-all this reads was full of imagery and you as a reader can reflect the lines of the aftermath...

Wow. This is so dark, so full of emotion. Beautifully written (as always); though it took me reading it two times over to understand it. I think my mind wondered off at the third stanza - but that's probably just my short attention span. lol :)
