Dark Mythic Flames

by Sea2Summit   Oct 24, 2007

Dark Mythic Flames of history
Sweep far across an eastern sea
Seething through society
Destroying all tranquility

Chronicles from ancient lands
Gripped tautly by medieval hands
Black the red hearts which they fan
Turn the world back into sand

Blinded by theocracy
Misguided with hypocrisy
Untruths form its self prophecy
To justify atrocity

In the smoke truth must be found
As hate bleeds love into the ground
Spreads disdain without a bound
Hope cries loud amid no sound

Shed the chains shed the tears
Cross the bridge over the fear
A new age will unite all here
Where free souls may shine so clear

    I feel this poem correlates strongly with our modern society ... a darkly, strongly embattled world that is personified through this poem.

    I like that there's no grammar whatsoever. It allows the reader to find their own flow, their own rhythm or pattern. It is a very brave move, but one that most definitely paid off.

    I usually critique, but there's nothing to critique, so I'll just point out my favorite line in your work:

    "As hate bleeds love into the ground"... this is probably one of the darkest, most beautiful lines I've read on this site. Forget the fact that there's a poem around it, the comprehension I get just from this line says what a thousand poems couldn't. The poem is great, but this line stands out starkly, to me at least. Blood of lovers is always spilled by those filled with hate. It is a sad fact in life, and what will likely result in the failure of the human race: our incessant self-destruction.

    Thank you for a read that will stick with me.
