Pain Of Achilles.

A poem about the pain of Achilles as he seeks revenge for the death of his beloved Patroclus at the hands of Hector, prince of Troy.


Pain Of Achilles.

Eternal his sorrow he raged with distraught
His dearest Patroclus felled by the sword
Incensed by the loss his killer he sought
Ida trembles at the shrill when he roared

Hector Troy’s match a prince she adores
Achilles presents his beating blood fist
Blood drunk his sword exposes all flaws
Air thickens metallic to a sickening mist

Horrific his skill he strips back the bark
Exposing life’s sap collecting at will
He circles his prey a sinister shark
Vultures sky high encourage the kill

No quarter is asked no heed is given
The annals greatest warrior mercilessly driven.
