The Teeth (poem)

Updated on January 29, 2014

The teeth

Beneath

The chill

So still

Which came

To flame

A sense

Now tense

By schemes

Of dreams

Which prey

On stray

Cannots

In thoughts

Which hide

Inside

A past

Amassed

In head

There bred

To steer

Our fear

To sewn

Unknown

Like mists

Or twists

We can’t

Recant

For now

Somehow

The pain

Insane

Has screwed

And chewed

Apart

My heart

And brought

This chilling

Stop

      Fantastic, and the sudden ending is perfect.

      The emotional wrangle, and the abruptness of the rhyme scheme I thought, syncopated very well in tandem with the orchestration of your desired mood. Thank you.

      Best Wishes,
