The Night Of Three Entries

A Poem by The Message

And upon the pier,
that jut from whence I
would chance tonight to die,
there was liquescent fear

And although 'twas mere
that feeling, the lie,
I lurched back awry
from this never known here

In the minute caress of
a withered, blackened dove

The slime would come
oh, that the slime would
enter and plumb
these least understood

A little rocky on meter reads somewhat jerkily when read aloud

Lovely French sonnet indeed! I thoroughly enjoyed this. Thank you for submitting this to Ivor's contest.

Due to lack of entries I have extended this contest in the hopes that more poets will submit. Please spread the word around!

Maybe Dark Angel Storm may wish to enter now! LOL

Excellent entry thanks!

Helena :)

I like music (Listening, playing and composing), reading and boardgames. As to writing, I prefer complex metaphor and Lovecraftian influences... and generally being incoherent, haha. more..
