"The writer of originality, unless dead, is always shocking, scandalous; novelty disturbs and repels."

You do not know me

For I am gone

A golden child

Of exotic song


In my youth

Like lotus flower

Divine, so lovely

Deigned with power


To shake the minds

Of mortal men

Seduce their hearts

With wanton sin


Tempting thoughts

Such a wild thing

Only skin deep

Does beauty sing


Passing years

A wasted wraith

Yon bitter heart

Waning faith


The lights they close

The night moves on

Truth doth ache

Nigh breaking dawn

    I try to keep it as simple as possible.

    I want the words to have definite meaning.

    Kindof like the sudden impact style of Cormac McCarthy.

    I love his writing approach.

    Thanks Barnsey. I think it a poem that men and women can appreciate. We all feel the slow death of youth. :)
