Best Elizabeth Wesley Poems

+ Fav Poet


Opulent the full moon glowed
Flooding light on a rocky road;
Casting down his gauzy veil
Luminescent to probe the pale.
Misty soft the shadows went
Into the secret sacrement;
Where evil meets the occult tryst
Of darkness dressed in amethyst
Where enchantments live to cast a spell
Within the fires that burn in hell.

Stealthy, sly the spirits tread
Through muted memories of the dead
To thrust their trance without disgrace
And exorcise the devil's trace.
Where he leads are feet to follow
Through the graves that fill the hollow
Then his key unlocks the door
To find that love lives nevermore
Fanning life's hot fleeting fires
In hearts filled with lost desires.

Midnight casts its cloudy beams
Smudging all the tarnished dreams
Leading each by knowing hand
Knowing none will understand;
And all who lay in soft beds sleeping
Opened eyes perplexed with weeping;
Each alone with poison's pain
That filled the night with tears of rain
And through it all there hangs aloft
The cunning moon so velvet soft.

    Explosive writing, Liz. I've stolen your line "fanning life's hot fleeting fires" and stored it in my 'fave lines' file. Beautiful alliteration and so absolutely you. I hope you're doing well, sis. :)

    Your poem carries to such a region where dark and light play their own game but life of some other is affected by. In the state of sorrow situational atmosphere brings something good too. Thanks for your kind visit to my write. Loved always, bl

    This is a kaleidoscopic romp through some satanic maze, garden or graveyard. Anywho that is the way I see it. A dance macabre. Romantic stuff. Love it. Love Dave

    Liz, I especially LOVE the last line: The cunning moon so velvet soft" but the whole thing is so somber, serious, brooding and yet...beautiful! Just thought I'd let you know I'm writing again and checking you out as well. Looks like you haven't lost your magical Midas Touch! Hope all is well...Cheers, Terry

    Don't worry Lizzy, rage and anger are two of the best muses. They inspire some to fight while us to write. I have my evils also. But my secret is I know God loves me.I know it through my work because I speek for Him. I know it through April because of what was.when I read your work I know we share the same thing inside. Not inteligence but s soul. I hate collaborating but with you there is no risk. I'll make something and send it. Or if I have anything to which you'd like to add feel free

    Few do I love and respect.I love many but for me to look up to; not many have earned it praises if you will. But if you write nothing else; your place in poetry history has already been filled.

    Where are you, Liz? We can't afford to lose our finest poet. Love, Dave

    Where is our darling Lizzy? We miss her so much. I'm beginning to be worried because she always shows up. We will just have to pray that she's alright.everybody keep eyes open and let us know if she's alright.
