.on The Horns Of The Moon - Poem by Adeline Foster

.On The Horns Of THe Moon

I cannot live in bitter dungeons
In the caverns of your heart
Where roam the flying creatures
Of javelin and dart.

I shall wrap my cloak about me
As the nightside tempests start
In those halls of bitter dungeons,
In the caverns of your heart.

    Who can know the heart with it's dark and secretive
    contents? Until the heart can become a place wherein
    lies love, peace, grace and mercy then there will be room
    for many to come in and enjoy it. Lovely poem. (Report) Reply

    A fine succinct write with good use of the bracketed repeated line at beginning and end for emphasis and poetic effect. (Report) Reply

    Definitely not a warm-hearted poem. Vivid imagery here - painful, cold and bitter.
    Depressingly superb!
