The Raven's Way

Among the dead contest
Joe Incatasciato

Her Heart is black with malice.
Her beauty cloaks her greed
With their blood she fills her chalice
and consumes them while they bleed

To love she is a stranger
Her motive's building wealth
The naive can't sense the danger
and are soon in declining health

She has been adored by many
and each one she's left to rot
For remorse, she hasn't any
As she gazes on their plots

It's said she's followed by a flock
Of all her murdered shills
They follow not to end her stalk
but because they love her still

Use caution. when in love you fall
Take care, or become her prey
For she cannot feel love at all
Beware, The Raven's way

    I had only read a couple of the poems and wanted so badly to enter but...too many things were going on and didn't get to. I knew Constance would have a time selecting her winners. There is a long list of winners here. Joe you should be so proud of your winning poem congratulations. Love, Carol

    Hi Joe! The ravens can send shivers down one's spine. They look so ominous, like they're planning something wicked. This has the feel of a should keep out of its path, for sure. Best wishes to you, Love, Mikki
