And so came he to barren land,
planting flag to boast his kingdom.
Riding steed,
a conqueror's need:
He held my hand
to own my fingers...

and all the dark clouds I forgave,
till stumbled I into my grave;
and still I begged to understand---
'til I spied shovel in his hand...

In truth, this light I can't deny.
Forebearance in a crypt--I'll die.
Each day a shovelful of earth,
each night another demon's verse.

A premonition of death? Dark stuff, I really love the last verse it sent a shiver down my spine. Great poem.

Mysteriously chanting. Not whipping up a spell are we?
If so have mercy on me mistress as it seems you have found a better way to use forbearance than have I.
Thanks Serenity

serenity,
         this one shows the pain of knowing only the same loss and sadness continually. . . the feelings are quite evident. . . but you will survive. . .

Excellent poem my friend. . .

Deeply dark I liked.

me thinks you've been reading too many of Michaels poems again *smile*
me thinks you need a hug too.
and perhaps day in the sunshine  
I'll meet you there.

exceptional and quite powerful poem here me sweets...
dark and oh so enchanting much like
the poet.
take care,please *S*

 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

Wow - this just plain Rocks serenity.  Shook me to the core with this one you did.  Love the lines:

"He held my hand
to own my fingers..."

"Each day a shovelful of earth,
each night another demon's verse."

I think I may know your demon personally... or at least his sister, well done, dear.

Janet Marie--can one ever read TOO MANY of
        of Michael's poems?  Kiss and wink!

slashed--it's a date, but let's make it a
        hillside graveyard, okay?  I Happen
        to know just the place!  thanks.

Michael--High compliment from the Master of
        Darkness!  Thank you so much my
        friend.  I think, we too understand
        each other.

Thought I might give this one new life
keep it off the bottom.
