THE EYES OF YORE

Ever star-stricken, eyes of yore
I've fallen to, I've fallen for.
By every eidolonic pleasure,
Upon each diamond cast, a treasure.
With a longing in the lolling
Of a voice forever calling.
From far heaven's filmy tresses,
Or the grave's silk-spun caresses.

Sorrows manifest to breathing
Beneath the heart, worms in writhing.
Independence carving sadness
On the mind who meets such madness.
Luminous Love, forever tinged
By golden radiance infringed.
The devil's blackness on the sky,
Ever dissevers life from lie.

By visage strewn dark, appalling,
A star relinquished to falling;
Never missed amidst the ashes,
By Gods unseen, to earth crashes.
Humanity, ever unshaken
By the wave of the forsaken.
Rides the tide of dawning Death
Unto the mist of baby's breath.

To stand alone, to stand if ever
Within the eye of Fate, but never
By Virtue's gaily-jeweled folly,
Wakes the wraith of Melancholy.
Flitting wings above the banner,
In stately stoned, marbled manner.
Ebony orbs scouring the floor,
Sightlessly staring evermore.

Michael Anderson


"But dreams of those who dream as I
Aspirinly are damned and die."

Glad you all liked it.  Was trying seriously to break the monotony of my recent poems.  I always seem to fall back into this obscure "Poe" style I think when I'm trying to write something other than just laying out my emotions.  Hey, if you want this muse - take it...just send me a happy one, would ya?  Thank for the kind replies....

By visage strewn dark, appalling,
A star relinquished to falling;
Never missed amidst the ashes,
By Gods unseen, to earth crashes.
Humanity, ever unshaken
By the wave of the forsaken.
Rides the tide of dawning Death
Unto the mist of baby's breath."

perfect"POE-try"...beautiful and cryptic imagery...another work of art jm




 When you see through love's illusions, there lies the danger...
And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool
So you go running off in search of a perfect stranger
While the loneliness seems to spring from your life
Like a fountain from a pool.

Nothing wrong with having a Poe quality to your poetry....you're associated with the best. This is excellent work, Michael.
