If eyes are windows to a person’s soul
Then what do they tell ‘bout this maiden fair
Whose eyes look as if she has lost control
Though they before did so much calmness bear.
Did madness suddenly this girl befall?
And has she finally lost control for good?
Is it the time doctors for her to call?
This heinous crime support I never could.
For I no madness see in blazing orbs
But resolution so unparalleled
And I would rather turn into a corpse
Than let her in a padded cell be held.
So I shall heed her call and join her fate
On her side enemies eradicate.
This just fit perfectly. Image credit:
PSA: The word of the month contest is still running to the end of the month. You can continue to post contributions!
Naming it Betrayal in this instance seems especially fitting! ;]
Thank you, I hoped someone would appreciate it. ;)
So I checked the current word of the month contest scores and lzlabs is a bit far ahead for my taste. To level the playing field I contributed a poem with every word except Lauren’s. Bonus points everyone!
You can read, like and reblog it (at most once) here:
You used to be my sacred inglenook
And sheltered me from life’s unruly storm
But once I bit the bait and I was hooked
You took my world and were no longer warm.
The cold has slowly crept into my heart
A hyperbolic story of betrayal
Unfolding since our paths have split apart
Where love once was now only hate prevails.
But time has passed and the devouring hate
And numbing noise that filled the silence hence
The chaos round me does illuminate
As syncopation brings me to my sense.
Despite all chocolate I am still so sad
Abandoning the dreams that I once had.
I have the feeling that posts disappear from the #wordofthemonthcontest tag. If you want them to score, please leave them public until after the evaluation.
