Chambers


Habit forming pain killers 
King's oath taken by mouth 
Forgetting love 
Becoming free
An intercession into divinity 
Royal servants evolve mankind 
From enamel dust to golden ashes 
Over gardens and on 
The backs that carry lashes
Face to face 
Soul, too 
So full, 
I wish for half a heart 
Not this loyal chamber of shit 
Heir to the throne 
Disfigured 
Compared to 
Ancient busts 
Of the messiahs 
Of the temple 
Let peace be 
With the maker
Devour the blood 
Of the killer

"Face to face
Soul, too
So full"

That is wicked cool.

Bringing some rhyme to the dance tonight, I see. I felt a beat here, as well as a beating. I can't say you're getting angrier out here, but you're definitely bringing serious verbal firepower. Peace, young friend. ~ j

Intriguing write.

wishing for half a heart

A psychological deconstruction of the ethic of responsibility and loyalty and its intrinsic conflict with freedom. Both must balance to achieve a destiny and the missing ingredient is harmony. Well written my friend!

those last four lines tore right through my heart...

"Heir to the throne
Disfigured
Compared to
Ancient busts
Of the messiahs
Of the temple
Let peace be
With the maker
Devour the blood
Of the killer"

A strong, imaginative write. Great job.

I really like the opening lines...Painkillers King's oath...we all have had our chamber of shit...I bow to your talent.

Mark Windham said...

'backs that carry lashes' is powerful.

The power in your words always grips me tight when I read here.

"Royal servants evolve mankind
From enamel dust to golden ashes
Over gardens and on
The backs that carry lashes
Face to face
Soul, too
So full,"

Wow.

Pretty cool the way your poem looks like a cross. A great idea given the poems content. Very creative, Anthony.

Heaven said...

I like those two lines outside the form of your words ~ Intense writing ~

poemblaze said...

Many wonderful ringing sounds from this poem:

Over gardens and on
The backs that carry lashes

It speaks to me of the struggle between the beauty of the moment and a painful history.

All we're missing is a crown of thorns, my poet messiah! Anthony...your words always just vibrate with the energy of your pen...seriously, how old is your soul! So much wisdom coupled with fearless writing equals a win every freaking time...

Loving the reference to painkillers as something 'regal', ruling mankind.....maybe something about drugs being god ....especially with the cross reference n your form (which I loved) ...intense....strong....loved
