Poem: A Sin in the Dark

A Sin in the Dark

An experimental poem by Sam Oliver [Eris]

She stands there like stone

 

Still as the moon

And twice as cold

 

Should I approach her

I know what she’ll say

Better to wait here

And hope that she stays

 

Still I might see her

Eyes glance this way

I may’ve imagined it

But who is to say?

She could be staring me

Down from behind

But how can I tell

She pays me a mind?

Her heart be true

 

This much you know

It’s not what she’ll show

 

But what lurks inside

The cold of her heart

Like winter’s first frost

It tears you apart

 

A warm night will melt her

Or force her away

If her soul is too soft

Perhaps she won’t stay

You cannot imagine

She’ll want to conform

Scented with jasmine

Perhaps now she’ll warm

I don’t like his look

 

I don’t like his eyes

Or the way that he lies

 

Through teeth far too white

I watch in his smile

The things I find bite

Are the cunning and guile

 

Can he not see

He’s no interest to me!

I want to be free of him badly

If he won’t away

I swear that this day

I’ll stand here and leave him

Quite gladly

Alone.

Oh, hi everyone. Yes, I’m still alive. New poem? NEW POEM! ❤

Experimental 1-2-4-8-1-2-4-8-1-2-4-8 line poem. ❤ Still probably classified as freeverse. I don’t know what I’d call it otherwise!

It’s the Leap Year! Leap Year Day! Happy birthday all of you born today. Comes around only once every four years, so if you were born in 2000 you are now officially three years old! Congratulations!

…No. That’s not how it works. :c

Birthday is not the same as age and anyone who tells you otherwise is a NUT.

<3’s,

-Eris

    • You aren’t the nut! Not unless you think that birthday is the same as age. :3 Come on now, who even believes that???

      (if you believe that it’s probably okay, jeez)

      I’m glad you like it! It was fun to write and totally needs more love.
