Resolute

Resolute

A Poem by Chris

Go right ahead.

Give me another reason.

Haven't you heard?

I learned of your treason.

Villian, traitor, enemy of the state,

I'll be there when you meet your end.

You are doomed to meet this fate.

The wounds I'll leave you with no one can mend.

Don't play the fool.

Don't pretend you're innocent.

You are nothing more then a ghoul,

a monster ever so virulent.

All those people you killed,

the web of lies you built,

this treachery you instilled,

yet you never felt any guilt.

Welcome to your end you urchin,

no longer will you be my burden.

Chris
A man murdered my father. A man who was my father's friend.
If I was ever given the chance to face him, these would be my final words to him.

I wish that I knew the context you were writing this poem in D: I like it because it has an angry, contemptuous tone, but I can't appreciate it fully because I'm not making out what it is supposed to be about. I checked out the picture to help me decipher it and....well I liked the picture, but probably for the wrong reasons xp.

So the poem is a bit mysterious for me. The first time through, I felt like it was from the point of view of an executioner speaking to a political prisoner, maybe, but when I read through it a second time I thought you might've just been speaking euphemistically, and describing something more personal. Either way, the feeling of anger and the desire for vengeance against a perceived wrongdoer definitely comes through forcefully. The first rhyme in the poem, ahead/heard, I thought was kind of awkward, but the rest of the lines are good and striking. "A monster ever so virulent" was the most forceful condemnation of whoever the object of this poem is. It's a solid poem, but I wish there was a description on it so that I could read it 'properly' I guess--then again, maybe part of it's magic is that the reader can project onto it whatever meaning they like.

This is the best poem I've read all day!
It's like I could feel the hate, the darkness of the poem!
Great job on this one.

Wow the dispute here is so raw and 'IN' it, y'know? This is excellent. The rawness of the hate and the ink-black darkness is juxtaposed beautifully.
