Pestilent

by Melpomene   Jan 21, 2009


I'm much too
holy,
to live with
your sins.
Cancerous
how you heal
these scars.

-Translucent.

You're a
silhouette
much like beauty,
unfaithful and yet
loved anyway.
A desired
alchemist
turning hearts
to stone
carefree monochrome
of darkened destiny.

It's much too
painful
to fight the sky.
Intriguing
how you strike
my heart.
You're like
lightning
on the eve
of confession.
Beautiful and
yet you cause
me harm.

-Pestilent

    I really can't express how this write made me feel. It could be one of the best you've written, in my opinion. I'm truly speechless, and I feel that nothing I would say could give justice to this poem.
    I somehow missed to read this when you posted it.
    It's flawless, it's breathtaking, and I don't feel like taking it apart and commenting every stanza separately, because, sincerely, it's perfect to me from the beginning to the end.

    Definitely enjoyed reading this piece. I felt the structure was very befitting, I never got bored. It was almost as if I was reading a new poem with each break.

    "You're a
    silhouette
    much like beauty,
    unfaithful and yet
    loved anyway.
    A desired
    alchemist
    turning hearts
    to stone
    carefree monochrome
    of darkened destiny."

    ---I love the word choice and description in this stanza. It paints an image into my mind, and I really appreciate that. It reads easily and with a great amount of depth.

    I was drawn in by the title, but hooked by the detail and emotion. I rarely comment, but I just had to. I'm also adding this poem to my favorites. I'll be reading more. Great job...5/5, definitely!

    Absolutely amazing! I adore your poetry, you have such a charming way with words...

    "You're a

    ^^^Love this part!

    And the last stanza is by far my favorite, it really tied the whole piece up marvelously... A fantastic read, one I can relate with.
