Temptation, Deception, Redemption - Part One

“Welcome to my mind,” it said, “come in and have a seat.” I stepped across the threshold and I wondered what I’d meet. “What is it you seek?” It asked. “I’ll try to grant your wish.” I looked around and saw my name there plainly on its dish. “Do you have the time,” it asked, “the time to hear a tale...

Conscience

“Here I am, again,” she said. “Do you recall my name?” I searched within my memories, but found there only shame. “Can you tell me why”’ she asked, “you asked for me to come?” I longed to find the words to speak, but found that I’d gone numb. “May I tell the tale,” she smiled, “the tale you long to ...

Sonnet 20 - Breaking Free

For is your sweetness born of strife and pain? A bleeding wound brought forth by razor lips. Like oceans drowning 'neath the heaven's rain, Your soul, it now upon these shadows sips? But do those shadows quench that burning thirst? Or does it, like a lonely dune, persist? And empty rooms may close u...

Of Dusk & Dawn / Book 1 / Chapter II - A Covenant Reborn

“Hail to natures friends,” I yelled, “and all who serve her needs.” He raised his head and waved to me, this part’ner to my deeds. Then he came across to me, though smile he did not. I saw there in his eyes he knew it was the one we’d fought. “Where is it you’ve been?” Vynn asked. “It’s been so very...

Through Rage And Pain

Through rage and pain now blind eyes see. Don't try to hide all you have done, No place to hide, no place to run. For only this will set me free. And nothing less will let me be, But darkness burned away to sun, Through rage and pain. I won't forget this face is me; Nor will I fear the silent gun, T...

Words Now Silent, Though Frightened, Stay

In the night, there I try to show, All the truths that you’ll never know; Those things I’ve seen, but could not say, Words now silent, though frightened, stay. Once upon a time things were good, Then came the things that never should. There lost within the death of day, Words now silent, though frig...

Yes, Heinzs, it is called a Rondine. It consists of two stanzas (a septet and a quintet) with a rhyme scheme of a.b.b.a.a.b.R....a.b.b.a.R. The "R" is a refrain which is made up of the first phrase of the first line. The French form of this type of poem is not bound by a rhyming pattern, but the Eng...

Call My Name

So call my name in times of grief. No, do not wait till all is lost, Lost there beneath the winters frost. For in the night there comes a thief, To reap your soul just like a sheaf; Your protests then they will exhaust, So call my name. For I will keep your waiting brief; While catching what from yo...

Touch The Scarlet

Just touch the scarlet of my heart. Don’t say to me you’ll never leave, Don’t play me for a fool naïve. Just pierce my heart as if a dart, Then from the wound I’ll come apart. But for me may you never grieve, Just touch the scarlet. Now take my essence, sweet and tart. Upon my head lay down your wea...

My Vision's Blind [A Rondel]

My vision's blind, I cannot see. Condemned to wander through my plight, Now all my demons breaking free, To take my mind, but leave my site. For once I thought that I could be, But then to see, I had no light. My vision's blind, I cannot see, Condemned to wander through my plight. So then I tried to...
