Such Fallacies in my love;

Yet, only clarity in my mind.

Clarity of curses;

Your fallacies made mine.
Lies are your soul:

Your Spirit.

Yet I know you; the lie that is you:

The Lie wrapped around you and a thousand dark beauties:

The Darkness that is Light to the ignorant.
A girl troubled;

Her fog as black as night

Is truth to the blind.

In this road laced with broken pedestals;


Subjected to the test of time
They hide the splendour of your eyes;

Your Feline Beauty

In remnants of great men; cities

No longer.

You hide in destruction to reconcile the truth:

That which you no longer know.

As Helen lost to Troy,

Her beauty no longer seen

To grace the skies;

To calm the mighty seas.

I am not your shield-

For I cannot protect that which I must watch be destroyed.

I am your sea of knowledge;

Destined to caress your shores

With the seductive promise of new lands;

The promise of a future you are desperate to know.

To rage while you swim; to command a thousand beasts to harm:

To test.
I only wish you knew me,

As well as I knew you,

That the knighthood bestowed upon my shoulders,

Were Queenship on yours.

For such is the curse of us: The Blessed.

To have purpose;

To be history itself-

But to never be known.

To sacrifice for that which we despise;

To bear God's Blessing;

To endure Hell's fury.

Hey, Nice poem. I really enjoyed it. I thought that you made the readers really think. It was a deep poem, and that's something I liked about it. Altough, at some parts, I didn't really understand it. But for the majority, it was greadtly written. NICE JOB. :) Keep up the good work. You're really good, considering how young you are.

Wow! Good job. Very deep. I've read through it once, but will be going back to pull it apart a bit. Some of it I don't understand, but that is the personal part of poetry.
