Reflections of a lantern
into glowing eyes
questioning origins
of known blatant lies
cause, necessity, a desire, a need
was it dark envy or truly blind greed
cave lit up, muted sounds rise
piercing long whispers, silence demise
logic was castigated, passion ran loose
soul was captured, hanging in a noose
power of persuasion, led to abuse
not long to refuse, final undisputed truth

    1. Thank you so much Chad. I am not much in form poetry or lyrics, normally write what my heart desires and that can become anything from limericks to Rap πŸ™‚

      1. Wow, I never thought this way and I’d always chase a form up till now. This is more of like “form follows function!” I’m grateful to you, AB, for I learnt something new today. Thank you! πŸ˜€
