Revenge

Ay, gaze upon her rose-wreathed hair,
And gaze upon her smile;
Seem as you drank the very air

    Instead of.
    All that you taught my heart to bear.
    To,
    all that you may know.

    (If this turns out to be a repetition, I'm sorry. I wrote the comment earlier and then had to renew my password.) Shouldn't the penultimate word be not rather than nor? There is nothing odd (poetic though it is) about the diction of the rest of the poem, but For thou art NOR beloved seems meaningless, while For thou art NOT beloved is quite natural.

  • Alex Marunde (6/16/2010 8:40:00 PM)

    Revenge comes at a price, thou wishes to punish thy for his mortal sins when one considers the uncontrolable pain he has brought apon thou heart. For this you will enjoy a moment of shine but only to be filled with an eturnal rhym of why did I? A beautiful poem, consider that revenge isn't always the answer, turn to the open hearts of your loved ones and you will find a way, I promise you this.

    I thought it was a typical revengeful poem... until I got near the end.
    And then I got to the end.

  • Manonton Dalan (6/16/2010 5:55:00 PM)

    it's so real for me.
