The Temptation of Paris

The Horizon, Now Is Dark
Dark As Crimes That Brought Them
Filled With My Impending Dread
My Foolish Actions, So Many Good Men
A Thousand Sails Approaching
Sent Here In My Good Name
To Reclaim The One I Stole

Desire Leaves Me Numb
To All Pain Surrounding Me
Storms Will Arise To Condemn Me
I Will Not Die Before Her Eyes
It Ends Tonight Tragically
I Must Accept Penance Earned
She Is Cursed And Tonight We Die
In The Dawn Of This, My Tragic End

I Hold My Sword True
Ahh, I Must Let Her Go
It Ends Tonight And I Am Alone
Pain Fills Her Eyes, Still I Am Alone
I Must Save My Honor
Yet I Cannot Let Them Win
Blood Of Many Will Spill
The Sacred And the profane
In Our Love, And In Our Death

Wow! How very creative!

An interesting and unique poem that takes me to the very Gates Of The City Of Troy and Paris' inability to see the enourmous consequences of his actions.

A Great Poem!
