A Poem by LadyRosaline

blank verse soliloquiy


Withdraw’l--retract yourself from me, Regress

Ere sprouted this abhorred seed,

Which elected me object of thine infections.

I will myself to thence deliver thee!

But soft, can’t I appoint this old address?

Or head a letter with‘t on the parchment penn’d,

And think rightly to the spot I intend ‘twill go?

Nay, ‘tis too uncertain to trust flatly.

Once laps’d my taking that I soon

To bratty illness took. As flesh from flesh

To flesh; mine from it to this: some viscous gels

From rancid pores doth lap at me, o’er-gloss

My soft complexion with slimy gallons

Fluid appalling as plagues,

And like Poison Ivy,

It twists itself about my skin-- I’m squeez’d--

As tight as ties tween sin and vice it clings

And stains my visage pale and green--withdraw!

Often the urge to cling to what we know or are accustomed too outweighs the mind's ideas for change. Charging ahead in the usual way, we remain blinded to what is the best way. Withdrawl from the rage and relax in the spirit that is peace. Very nicely done my friend. You hold a very unique pen in your hand and with it you craft beautiful art.

Read, write, and be read, but always be yourself, for your voice is yours alone and originality can be found within, if no where else... Writing is an expression. I know, I can hardly read that sta.. more..
