Upon a pedestal

Delusion reeked havoc within his mind,
whispered words of the near insane,
hatred building up making those blind,
that would follow him faithfully into the flame.
Blade in hand intent on seeing death that day,
he stabbed and hacked her pure beauty away,
robbing her of life and that of her innocent baby.
Onward he strode leaving behind a path of destruction,
littered with bits of flesh and strewn with the blood of a lady.
Never hesitating with even a moments remorse at this production,
forever etched within the hallowed halls,
upon a pedestal where his name is placed upon walls.

    Wow! Vivid and devastatingly powerful. Your use of imagery and descriptive detail is truly masterful. The rhyming pattern of 1-3, 5-6, 8-10, 11-12 is unusual and effective binding your reader to the poem. Just brilliant! - Stephen
