Iniquity

The serpent had already coiled on the feast
The hiss of sultry laments thrown in to wail her wisdom
Screeching a requiem for my naiveté
I still choose to give it my all 
My only strength, my innocence 
I belong to my gods 
And sometimes to their fierce absence
I was raised on songs of dirge
Where lullabies go sour and curdled
And yet I survive, untouched, 
Out of reach, as Eves play their favorite arena
Apples thrown in on their whims
I shiver in the cold of deception's blanket
Thrown in for my warmth
The same lullabies wailing
But I give all the same, 
I choose to give my blood…

    "I belong to my gods And sometimes to their fierce absence I was raised on songs of dirge Where lullabies go sour and curdled And yet I survive, untouched," I had to quote such brilliant lines. What a remarkable, intense piece. I've been reading a lot of your poetry lately. It fills me with awe. Excellent composition! Always, Laura

    Your feelings leap out of your words and ignite the emotional fires alive within your verses. Your words burn onto the page and the reader feels a rise in pulse. Emile. #7

    The evil that slinks, singing deceptive words is always waiting for us . . . but strong is the spirit that chooses not to bow down but persevere. Your words are strong and inspiring -- filled with precious life and love! 7

    Written with your usual stunning imagery, Bindu. This one is very powerful. Love that phrase: lullabies wailing. Thanks so much for coming to visit my poem today.

    "I shiver in the cold of deception's blanket thrown in for my warmth" .. this is a beauty! An excellent poem built on the 'innocent' strength of the writer. You persevere, and notwithstanding the serpent and his deceit, you will survive and succeed. Full marks to you, Bindu! Hugs // paul
