To She

To She

A Poem by Zorrin86
"

-

"
Just like the curses
That have drained the pallor of these verses;
Just like the songs heard
When stones are cast by 
The Colossus of fate's spiteful urges;
Felt in the caverns and hollow places, 
In the beggar's limp and the angel's brooding faces. 
Look to the great churches that
Lord over skies with ominous glances,
Seen through the disheveled locks of 
Martyr's hair that he clutches as he winces;
Just as the pyre is heaped 
With fresh virgins to stay
The god's mad vanity, 
Hope is fretted with beating breasts and shrill cries, 
As fresh disaster threatens our anemic morality. 
Savage indifference and shrewd glances
Betray the beauty of she
Where there is none fairer, 
Fairer even than mother Earth
That smiles always 
In beauty or in terror, 
A kind of shameless enlightenment
That laughs even with vampires 
In their coarsest resurrections.

This is a stunning visual display in your grandiose imagery.. such vivid and classical vocabulary, of which I’m so fond! It’s a tad long (but aren’t all the classics?).. You’d fit in nicely among them. This is beautifully romantic and sweeping.. definitely epic, and you do so superb a job at painting the scenes with your word choices.
