I Keep My Visions to Myself

She came to me with hooded eyes,
her frank suspicion undisguised,
pushed to the brink, I surmised,
come to hear me prophesize.

Candles flickered in the room,
shadows darting through the gloom,
she smelled of musty, cheap perfume,
I recognized the scent of doom.

My hands caressed the crystal ball,
gazing in, I saw it all,
I tried to make my face a wall,
to shield her from the pain I saw.

What I told, I chose with care,
yet, stunned, she sat back in her chair,
people seem so unprepared,
but why'd they ask, if they're so scared?

She glared at me with baleful ire,
spat at me, called me a liar,
fled as if her hair was on fire,
the psychic life is God's satire.

    This is a very well written pioece. I enjoyed the fact that you used partial rhyme rather than make something soung forced. It is great to see such skill, you obviously love what you do. The form you use would make any narrative funny, even if it was not meant to be. that is not to say that this is an easy thing to do. You have to work to get it right and that is what you have done here. Brilliant!
