Done Deed

Sequel to "The Dream"

I came from a funeral
With tears I couldn't see;
For I killed my lover
Who wouldn't love me.
His mouth with soft lips
That lit his sweet face
Brought a vision of sorrow
For a lonely grave's place.

For he did deceive me
And I couldn't find rest;
Till I turned and I slew him
I knew this was best.
I stood there beside him
With a spade in the clay;
Tomorrow I'll forget him
But I’ll shed tears today.

    Hell hath no fury... a cautionary tale, sayin' don't mess with my emotions. Laura is right... it's best read aloud.

    Awesome verse! Read it out loud with some dramatic classical music and it rocks even more. Keep writing! Always, Laura

    the doer of this dastardly deed has a heart colder than the body it is burying! and once again as with many of your cool reminds me of a song.. folk style. ..and that my a good thing

    Smile, intense emotions expelled amid this dreamsequences lovely verse my dear precious Elizabeth * Hopefully it served its purpose in allowing your beauty to vent and or perhaps escape the plagues which often accompany many relationships amid these present days wherein we dwell * Also, thank you for the kind visit my dear; much appreciated * My love always and forever, John *

    Such a dream! This deserves a Valse Triste accompaniment, or Mephisto Waltz might be more fitting. Enjoyed mucho. Love, daver

    Sounds like an old irish folk song which I love btw. As with many of your poems, I feel as if they should be sung ... and for me..that's a good thing! nice job of it Elizabeth. Thanks for your comments.... My activity is praying for them and writing about it much to many peoples' chagrin. I am gulity of not writing enough about their plight I'm afraid... but comments such as yours give me encouragement to continue to write about their cause.... which is the world's
