Author: Scorpio


Compelled into silence;
Eyes with story to tell.
Fragile as the beating heart,
With a soul to sell.

It was a very late eve
On which a certain man stood;
Down the dwindled road,
Was a woman of sainthood.

This beaut was known by many,
But exiled from above.
She wandered from each heart--
For this woman's name was Love.

Those lips seeped with poison-
Spilling words like a glass of wine.
It seemed as drunken death's fancy,
Was with which we were to dine.

She meandered with the wind;
Came and left with dawn.
Arose of dusk's blasphemy--
Sashayed until she was gone.

It left many bewildered;
Speechless, some were to say.
That they were so honored
To be visited by her that day.

Some say she was a legend;
The fantasy of a game.
But with every breath of wind,
Comes that saunter of the dame.

------- Author's Notes -------

This was done while half asleep, munching on a chocolate chip brownie at four in the morning, so I might edit the poem every now and then to my liking, or to make more sense. (: To me, it seemed more like a tale of the heart than anything, so I figured it was more of along the lines of a story-ish type poem. In a way, I guess this could hold personal value to me on some levels, but mainly, I'd like to see people's opinions on what I write. So I'd appreciate any criticism whatsoever.
