Man in the dark suit I dare to ask

Updated on July 29, 2015

Man in the dark suit I dare to ask

Man in the dark suit I dare to ask

Bring news to me

Define our final tasks

For all the blue eyes to see


Bring news to me

Take off our masks

For all the blue eyes to see

In pearl lit moonlight I do bask


Take off our masks

Throw away the key

In pearl lit moonlight I do bask

Man in dark suit: Set us free


Throw away the key

These things I do ask

Man in dark suit: Set us free

You’ve been chosen for this task


Man in dark suit: Set us free

You’ve been chosen for this task

For all the blue eyes to see

Man in the dark suit I dare to ask

      Good morning Kim from lake erie time ontario canada 8:49am

      This most excellent piece really took me to another place and definitely fired up my imagination which is always a good thing and your words left me hanging ..... for more ..... which is a good thing too in terms of suspense .... thank you for this thrilling read, Miss Poe, lol.

      Sending good thoughts your way from Colin and his cats Tiffy and Gabriel

      xstatic,

      This was my first try at the pantoum form. I appreciate your comment and noting the mysterious element I tried to create with the image of "man in a dark suit."

      This is interesting and very mysterious as well. The repetitive form works well with the subject.

      Thanks Mhatter99. I am still working on the form-even tougher than the villanelle. You must be very special for I have been told that the masons only accept the best men. Best Always, Kim
