Eros and Psyche

Eros and Psyche

My lonely princess,
Come lie within the ruins that is my heart,
Viciously torn to shreds by his daunting voice.
These pillars of Chaos hold bitter vengeance,
Deep within hollow walls of crimson blood.

Eros you betrayed me, with your selfish act,
Brought agony to my princess and our love.
Jealousy made you weak and your eyes green.
The Gods cherish you for you are one of them.

You desire the love of my princess, a mortal,
As I am, and you cursed my heart with hatred.
My purity has vanished, you have taken my soul,
You left me to suffer alone in the pits of Tartarus.

My beautiful Psyche, we once shared true love.
How jealous were the Gods to take you from me.
Eros had poisoned your mind with a touch of lust,
That ran deep into your heart, and I lost you forever.

    A beautifully scripted poem... Sounds to me as if I am watching some kind of a ballad. Mind blowing is not the exact word which can be used to describe this poem... Coz this poem should be rated high above mindblowing. What made me mesmerise the most was one particular stanza and that is the starting itself. Wow! What a way to start the poem. Keep writing this way... Rock On!

    Regards,

    Eros you betrayed me, with your selfish act,

    There's no need for a comma there.

    Oh wow.

    This actually makes me want to read
    The book of the gods.

    I have a fascination with it. But I could never keep awake.

    Otherwise.
    Really good writing.

    Ohmigod that was amazing! The way you start the poem "My lonley princess.." was such a great hook and you reeled me in.

    Come lie within the ruins that is my heart,
    Viciously torn to shreds by his daunting voice.
    These pillars of Chaos hold bitter vengeance,
    Deep within hollow walls of crimson blood.
    ^^^ That is personally my favorite stanza.

    Your choice of vocabulary really added to the atmosphere of this poem. It is incredible how so few words can grab my mind and pull me deep, feeling the emotions you displayed.

    Brilliant job!! I love it! *clicks to add to favorites*
