Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


This empty space waits, along a dim marsh
where paramour hides from tints of red dew,
and crackling boughs grip like a whiplash
on venial sins of passion, long the slew.
Her pace quickens to reach Eden's boulder
weighing low, chained by raked emotion
knowing not why ecstacy grips a dare;
as ravens swoop in twilight procession.
The illlicit hours reel a tempting game
venial sins genuflect without relief,
that holy stars warp in foiled cellophane
while gangrene clouds dodge like a hidden thief.
Her secret man appears, bearing moon’s core
to flame clandestine hours into moans' thrill
there, shadows quench for more of rain's downpour
as pleasure and pain mix a tyrst, fulfilled.

    Hi, Nette! I really enjoyed reading this piece. It's one of the very few ones I've encountered that's written today but very much feels like it's from old long ago. I love the impeccable imagery and the way it flows. Glad to encounter a fellow Filipino on this site. \m/
