The Talisman

The Talisman

A Poem by Marie Harrison

A creepy poem.














The Talisman Ride

The Talisman rides by my side

My life is over there’s nowhere I can hide

The lone crow does a fly by as we ride

A dead manatee has washed on Beachside

Only moments until I’m not alive

His sharp knife is pressed

Deep into my hide

How did I get here, what rules did I not Abide

I want life to continue, I cannot lie

What did I do wrong what was my crime

All I did was to enjoy my life

Why was his madness generated when I smiled

Now it’s time for my life to subside

With my blood draining I’m barely alive

This is great - I can feel the angst at a life almost over, the fear, the questioning...

Excellent work, my friend!

I wonder which part of the hide is blunt..not that this was the only thing which caught my attention. The poem deserves much more than my usual. Well done.
