Raven Bluff

Raven Bluff

A Poem by Frieda P
"

Wrote this whilst listening to Ghost Song by Max Ablitzer, music included. Hope you enjoy the music as much as I did.

"
I flew with the dark raven
   for he was the only one
   who could taste or see
   such  insanely sweet madness in me
   he perched himself right astride
   without cawing a sound
   naught a lecture to take care
Mockingly looming overhead
   he stared me straight in the eye
So smooth and lovingly lush he sailed 
   soared within me to new heights
   before we burst into fluid flight 
I took him in languidly 
   hauntingly mysterious elixir
   a cryptic spirit unto himself
Cracked half a vitriolic sad smile
   whilst he prepared me for sin
Knocking back at my door
  to taunt me raving yet afresh
  he sing songs his intoxication into me,
  then takes me for a mystical rendezvous
  raven's song so tastefully contrived


              we sing together,
                           twisted in consumption
                                                   the dark raven in me
                                                                    never judges

Mystical, black ravens taking you out on ethereal dates and slowly embedding itself into your soul, becoming forever a part of you (hence the singing together in the end, and the dark raven IN you never judging). What a dark centerpiece for a love felt by a person trying to empty themself.. Well done.

Thanks Annabelle, I actually sorta like this one myself, and you know critical we poets are....
ravens are my favorite people scorn them but they have a beauty about them in their numbers color and attitude as if they would never judge to find a person like that would be nice it seems the better you try to be the more judgement and lectures you get and not just from authority but from those who you thaought had your back for having it's sake

'favorite people' ha....I'm starting to understand you better! ;-)
Absolutely fabulous... Poe would be proud... many think of ravens as symbols of death where I see them more as protectors of the down and out.

I believe the darkness of the Raven lives in all of us. Some may fear it, some may surrender to it. You have written an intriguing piece which haunts the corners of my mind. Excellent write!
