The Light Is Gone

The light is gone,
the night destroyed the light of day.
the light is gone,
demonic troops have won the war.
There’s nothing else for us to say —
we beg our foes to lead the way…
the light is gone.


Another rondelet, but this time, it uses the words offered in Jane Dougherty’s previous poetry challenge — the light is gone.

We Travel Far

We travel far

to flee this dark and barren land,

We travel far

to otherworldly seas and skies.

A crimson boat, a spirit friend —

we’ll see this journey to the end.

We travel far…


This was actually an earlier attempt for Jane Dougherty’s poetry challenge, but it took a really long time to make this work. I think this fits the image a bit better=)

Betrayal

This is similar in structure to another poem I’d written before, The Fault In Our Stars. Although the plots are very different.


I’m drowning. Help me, set me free —

I’m burning in the sunlight,

a poisoned sea has captured me.

forsaken by the moonlight.

I used to love the water‘s taste,

I had the sun’s protection,

I marveled at the ocean’s grace,

its light showed me direction,

and now, as death embraces me, I face a shameful end;

my killer is the entity I deemed to be my friend.


The poem technically includes water and fire but in my mind, the two are basically inseparable.

Home City

This city is my home yet it symbolizes death. The death of my comrades on these streets during a war I loathe to remember. The death of my family in an explosion I was lucky to evade. The death of a lover in a car accident. A cursed place, it seems, but my home nonetheless. Perhaps that’s why I found myself here after I died.

I wonder if I’ll meet them all again.


Belated response to the Daily Post promptcity.
