Violet And Vices

hsinwang_de-selfing_no_27.jpg

Hypnotized and Paralyzed by your love

Good-byes exchanged, it was time to let you go

Funeral Suits, as blubber mirror in Arcadia above

Violet and vices, roses for hollow 

Onyx world graced by you like a white dove

As I stood, transfixed under the shade of a Ginkgo

We could have fabricated an empire of our own

Lying wan and pallid, abused and victimized, you left me alone

 

 

 

 

 

*This poem is a tribute to the victims of sexual abuse*

Wrote this in response to dVerse’s Form of all – Ottava Rima post.

    Wonderful is too small an adjective if not a word, to describe the strong emotions that I could imbibe from that poem! The last line is my favourite!

  6. This is why is love poetry, so many emotions are expressed using such few words! Your poem is powerful, it hits the reader exactly where it should. Loved your usage of antithetical metaphors 🙂
