Forbidden Knowledge

Poem By Rod Mendieta

Ever will Forbidden Knowledge
Give wings to your mind
But your feet will always bind
To the loneliest rock-ledge.

There will bloom the heather
By country-lanes in a wild spree
But your eyes will only see
Thorn-bushes and harsh weather

The Necromancer will always prey
Upon anyone pushing the veil aside;
A thousand snares he will hide
And the bait will throw your way.

Comments about Forbidden Knowledge

Nice thought provoking piece embellished in poetic rhyme and rhythm. Very insightful. Thanks for sharing Rod.
Oh! I like this. I like it standing here alone.... but I sense it could be part of an epic book written in verse telling the tales of olden times and bravery true. I like your word choices - every line has such power....10+++++++

The old sturgeon held his fishing pole
Sitting well away from the busy shoal
Right on the pond's mossy bed.
He swung it once, swung with might,


Yours is wondrous Poetry
Laden with the ripe fruits of emotion,
The lustrous layers of your longing.
One should only very carefully tread

For it pains me so to see you
Raising castles with flimsy sticks
And fanning the flames of hope

The Island Of Your Smile

Oh, indeed it'd easier to abdicate
And walk out into exile in a cove of silence
Than to raise a bridge of words
And steal over the ocean of your indifference.

Her Kisses Drink Me Up Slowly

Her kisses drink me up slowly
Her mouth sipping keenly
Then playfully holding back,
Her moist lips thirsting,

Gratitude To A Black Bird

Black bird perched on the eave
Croaking a dissonant note amidst
So many Nightingales
Are you aware of my gaze?
