I Come With Love Poem by Dash Black

Dead sores and bruised toes
Up and down the silent shores
Cuts deep, drilled by poisonous foes
In and out of dungeons and dangerous holes

Skeletal thin; hardly covered with skin
Shallow faced and hollowed cheeks up my chin
Been traveling in deserts violent and mean
Sad nights, weirdly pitch black and dim

Up, through and under misty mountains void of life
Stumbling and falling I walked on in the dearth of light
Now torn garments and a skeletal shadow braces my sight
Startling and bearing witness to the consequences of my fight

With bruised toes and sores thus I come
With deep cuts drilled by foes, I arrive home
Past misty mountains, through, up and above
I stoutly come home with love

    Wonderful imagery, I could feel the desperation and what a beautiful ending. home. so sweet. great words used to paint a picture, is this a soldier's tale? it rings military strife...the return home. beautiful. (Report) Reply

    The poem would look better with little bit of trimming. Natural flow of words, however unrhymed, is much better than the rhyming ones that you struggle to find.
    The last stanza is soothing! (Report) Reply

    This is an interesting write! Quite a different style than most poems I have read.
    However, I love how livid and alive this poem seems.
    It is fairly touching, and I love it!

    This poem is written with such beauty and courage. Through your poem
    I sense a boldness to want to come out and from under a life of darkness
    and into a life of light and wonder. Love is the greatest of all feelings and
    it conquers hate. Yes come with love! Thank you and Amen. (Report) Reply
