Mercy Bend - Poem by Jack Dylan

Yellow brick road
Gilded by lust
Escorted to heaven
Walls reduced to dust

An urban princess
In search of her knight
Eager to please
Reluctant to fight

Lost in your spell
Molded like clay
Pulling my strings
Slowing leaking dismay

Slave to your smile
Baking your hearts desire
I long for your love
How will this evening transpire

Virgin thy prey
And ready to sew
Suspiciously premeditated
By one you don’t know

Coy and cunning
You lead the way
The devil is waiting
With soul you shall pay

A pact we shall sign
In blood and in tear
Retribution awaits
Nights filled with fear

Divinity provides
An omniscient friend
Ten years of anguish
Ignited by Mercy’s Bend

    Only three times in this poem did you use more than four words in a line you are great with words jack to be able to rhyme and paint a valid picture with as few words as possible is difficult but you have it knocked here.

    Chilling yet beckoning, the devil and his pact. (Report) Reply
