Words were my true lover
The soft and downy quilt
I hid beneath its cover
The sword was in its hilt

The tongue is sharp and swift
Though flat the sides of it
One might think it is a gift
To wield the mighty wit

Double bladed bastard sword
To swing through resting souls
Why I hid from the Lord
In the quilt of many holes

Who would darn a sorry quilt?
The damned that keep me here?
My words in time will e’r wilt
But the fire will always sear


Intoiprutations pleez

Someone let you down, and all you have for comfort is the holey old quilt? Or whoever let you down is the quilt, and you don't know how to fix it?
I loved the analgy;s in this Great job!!
Is analgy the right word? I fear it is not

Succeeds the glory of the bowl -
An idle longing night and day
To dream my very life away

Walt- my int is that you (regret?) having hidden behind your words, keeping the real you from view. And through that "deciet" you lost something valuable, (faith, love, friend...)
Well done in any fashion!

You used words to make a quilt to hide under but now the sword of your words has made holes and that makes hiding hard, especially from the Lord. And there's no one to darn the darn thing but you. This is a great poem and very provacative.

I may be way off base here , but I would interpret this as an expression of remorse for not having learned to reign in one's own tongue before the damage has already been done .Really liked the read , Way out
