Oh, the Shame

Oh, the Shame

A Poem by allie_arrowz

Shameful begging,
At your feet,
I kiss, i weep.

The soldiers creep,
They chain my hands,
They drag me from you.

Shameful begging,
At your feet,
"Please, spare my heart!"

They drag me away,
Your eyes are dry.

I kiss, I weep,
Oh, spare me.

I like it because it leaves much of the story open. I don't have any comment on the structure, it seems adequate. Somehow the words and the structure don't say much to me yet the whole does. The sum of the parts I suppose. The poem becomes a mild enigma for me, I don't know where it is but it is there. Thanks.

Amazing use of words. The short lines you gave enough to create sad visions of begging to be spared. No weakness in the outstanding poetry.

As I am reading I am thinking what? what is it that the speaker needs to be spared from? One would assume that it was about like with your use of the line "Please, spare my heart" and the other lines and that may be true but I also feel as if it can pertain to almost anything because the heart is connected to all. But then I realized it didn't matter what it was but that it was about the pain of loss and the sense of doom that could be felt as the speaker realizes there is no savior, no freedom, no salvation just impending doom no matter how much we lower ourselves or beg and plead. Very good work.

heartbreak
Great emotion, I really like the harsh imagery it does a great of showing the emotion. "shameful begging at your feet" is a great line and I like that you used it twice. I also like "Your eyes are dry.

One feels a trembling agony in your words... the longing to stay... to love... to live as you once did... As metaphor or more, this speaks so deeply to the losses we face in our lives, and the desire to keep things the same, even in shame.
