+ Fav Poet


Bury me in a eulogy of roses,
While my final breath closes.
A vile heart will cease to beat,

A long glossy coffin, dreary black,
An effigy of sorrow on a plaque.
Tears won't conceal the deceit.

Remember not the regret,
A failure at life's roulette.
Withhold harsh memories of me,

I was never sainted,
Immortal soul tainted
Too stubborn for the light I didn't see.

I leave few with broken-hearts,
As my essence departs.
My sullied soul auctioned long overdue,

Pray if you must,
I share your disgust.
Satan shall claim you too.

    Lisa, wow... i can visual a eulogy of roses.. I am blessed by the visions I see.. I will not go without a fight... I loved everything about your poem... But, your ending kind of got away from the flow.. It does rhyme, but I think you pulled away from the awesome morbid image you gave at the start of your poem... Still loving it anyways~ PD
