A Lover's Death

Poem By Holly Heron

This breath is stuck within my breast,
This heart caught between beats,
The tear still runs down my cheek,
Before my Lovers folly.

The knife it twists within his back,
Red falls upon this snow,
Hearts beat does come and breaks my chest,
Because of anothers folly.

My tear does strike the ground and freeze,
A monument to subtle death,
Love's betrayal, pain, anguish,
This tear does lie frozen,
For all to see,
What a Lovers death doth bring to me.

My tear does strike the ground and freeze-What power in this sentence? I like this style of sentenece. Very good, and powerful in this. I like this piece is fully descriptive.

i really love the way you wrote this poem.it say a lot about what went on.kelly
I agree with Kelly Allen Vinal... these are words beyond your years. Keep writing and stay with it. You will see you will only get better and better and that you will go through several style of writing changes. Grow and keep posting so we can share in those words... Rick

A Vampires Song

Step into my lair
This cool calm night
Step into my lair
And give into my plight.

Don'T Leave Me Alone

Don’t leave me alone,
This dark cold night,
Don’t leave me alone,
In this freezing fright,


A vision lays beforemine eyes,
And terror strickens me,
A world in flames,
The horsemen rise,

Bow Before My Death

I lie beneath the flame this night,
I bow before my death,
He takes my hand,
And holds me close,


Do what feel's right,
