Slay The Murderous Demons

Slay the murderous demons,
Lust, Anger and Greed;
Or, aiming their arrows at you, they will
surely shoot you dead.
Take care, feed them on self-restraint
and discrimination of the Self;
Thus starved these demons will become
powerless and weak.

Beyond the line of blue- The boundary of the star Which turneth at the view Of thy barrier and thy bar- Of the barrier overgone By the comets who were cast From their pride and from their thro Nice poem, thanks.
The style of narrating the story of the poem with minutest details is simply superb. Enjoyed the poem.
I ran across this little tidbit and thought you all might like to take a look at it. There's this literary device that a writer can use when they want their characters to talk to characters or ideas even though they are not physically there. It is called an apostrophe. One of the times Poe uses this in Al Aaraaf is when Nesace, [ Beauty ] calls out to Ligeia..
this so long I got lost in the first third
That liist our love; with the seasons of life. Nice work.
