Random Quote

A writer is one who creates works of art for the masses without ever asking for anything in return.

Curse is he dare speak of me
take no foolishness dare breathe in see
sight of lifeless eyes I give,
and touch not what is my love
banish life, twist my marrow,
and off with me and fine fellow!

Don’t dare utter words of harsh
tell all never speak of me again,
and cut me for what I not am.
I bleed the scars of all, damned.

Teachings give to those in need
double-cross none and bow in honor,
and never silence the sick in dying,
always give the one hiding
another chance,
to feel feelings of respect.

Caution them against your twin brother
curse is he dare he speak,
grown old, bitter, and weak
alone in eyes cold with anger,
and throne shredded beneath him, cringe
never speak such sputtered words again,
in a manner unpleasant to those around he!

Curse is he dare speak of you
utter idioms vile, crude
snack viciously upon delicate skins,
and torn through everyone come in contact with.

Banished for forever feasting
is he, the one, beginning, weakening.

    You are a throw-back! I love it – ‘Don’t dare utter words of harsh
    tell all never speak of me again,’
    Oh la la la :yes: :kissed:

    I used the word ‘naught’ in a poem in my book and my proofer told me it was too old fashioned. Well well isn’t everything old new again after all?

      Let it stream. This poem hit me one day and I let it flow. I have tried writing something else in this style, but nothing has appeared.

      We’re bringing old fashioned back. πŸ˜‰
