i choke on all bestiary tales that dismorph the heart

all alone in the cabin that disfigures,

tremor of hands that will not still,

abridged conditions i accept,

 

a pct considered unholy,

i choke on all bestiary tales that dismorph the heart,

raven cleansed lungs sing and breathe,

the burden of my loins sold with caution,

 

her breasts turn bitter as she wails pain,

i choke on all bestiary tales that dismorph the heart

solitude an empty bed without,

she now silent by my blade and kiss on brow,

 

that carpetbag of immense wealth,

i choke on all bestiary tales that dismorph the heart

spills gold glitter into my eyes,

and what i see turns dark as they fail

    ..great refrain and though it stayed singing on the same line for the rest three stanzas with the exception of the first stanza it,still, came out strong and smashing… i like… smiles…

  2. Dark refraining lines….I specially like the third stanza ~

    Great work on the form too ~

    Unique refrain… I like it a lot!

  4. oh heck..you went down the dark alley today… you should go and read tash’s..that should be right up your alley…the form and repetition makes this even more haunting…

    wow, what a line. a very strong and angry poem – the words sting like knives. truly great work.

    i think you and tash are reading the same books…ha….both dabbling in the dark with this form…interesting intimacy as well between the killer and the victim….a kiss after dying…
