Crucified Fables

By Ladyhawke

The myth of Love
It's said he's forgotten time

Time and passion and love for the stars
He's deadened toward feelings
Nothing left but scars


The myth of Hate
It's said he consumes all

Consumes everything around him
But his soul's just aching
His dreams looking dim


The myth of Passion
It's said he won't burn for long

Fire will smolder, killing his dreams
He just wanted to love
His heart breaks and screams


The myth of Time
It's said he will fade away

Be forgotten and blown through the wind
But his poor soul's been beaten
Been shackled by his sins


The myth of Sins
It's said he'd be forgiven

But alas, forgiven he was not
So, slave he is to hell
Peace never was sought

Author's Note:

I wrote this while my sister was in the hospital. I was, forgive the expression, losing my mind for a time. So, this may not make sense. The rhyming scheme is shot, so don't even look for it. Just, words strung together....

    When words are given to describe pain, misery, or the brim of insanity they will always make sense to the ones who know those places, and among this realm we all do. So rest assured your choiced words are exalted by many, especially myself. Stunning, Exhilirating, Overall Penetrating to the depths of beyond the core of the spirit. I Applaud and Bow

    It's said that poems written in the worst of times are the best. I know the time was stressful but the weaving of the "myths" associated with emotions in this poem was amazing. You know, I've always wondered where all the emotions came from? How did emotions come into existence. Did the first human species felt pain? Felt love? Now that I know these are nothing but 'myths', my search is over. I can die in peace. ;) I love this one! Book marked!

    I LOVE how you've given life to these abstract concepts. It's one of my favorite techniques. Oh, and don't worry too much about rhyming. It works wonderfully as prose. Your author's note gives this a certain tenderness.
