Fool of Infiniti and Queen of Fate

Fool of Infiniti A wanton bird pecks at the stars A Jester peers through crystal bars This prison of love with rainbow hue Illusion parts to lets you through On dragon wings forever free You quest into your dreams to see Smoke and mirrors and shadow haze To guide you through an endless maze Slow motion tear rolls down her cheek Its only passion that you seek ? Engulfed in strange duality. She wonders her reality Your eyes still mock her with desire Your kisses light her inner fire Your touch can melt her to your will But you will never take your fill Black widow spider guards your heart She spun the web, she keeps it taut It is your only fatal flaw. A secret, silent metaphor. And all about her swirl the dreams The nightmares all with voiceless screams And in her hand the strangest key To fit the door of What Will Be ? And when her eyes search yours again You take her to the spider den You spin the dreams she hopes to see And lock your hearts in mystery. So enter in to lick the flame Eternal prisoner of the game Illusion is false imagery She whispers your Infinity The Queen of Fate The Queen of Fate by the outer Gate Her carriage to Nowhere, will await Her cloak is wrapped against the night Her eyes are wide with peculiar fright Gray horses eyes turn back in fear With thunderclaps upon her ear Blue jagged lightning points the way Along the path to yesterday Cold, sullen driver cracks his whip His crooked smile curls round his lip His horses leap the cruel abyss Dark Queen of Fate sees none amiss Above the mist a gate appears Who will wipe the Gate-man's tears ? Gray horses strike and paw the air Fate Queen ascends the carriage stair And all about her swirl the dreams The nightmares all with voiceless screams And in her hand a wondrous key To lock Enigma's Mystery Pass through the gate O Queen of Fate Another carriage will await Drawn by steeds of Promises Illusion starts and finishes.

That's amazing, Suz. How crazy to think your most popular poem is the very thing you wrote. When I first started writing it wasn't like this ... in fact it took me a little bit of time to get into the poetry world, as I originally wrote lyrics (so-so in the beginning). It's good to branch out ... keeps things from going stale. A tired saying, but it's true ... variety is the spice of life!

I read metered poetry avidly as a girl, especially the Australian Bush Poets, Banjo Paterson and Henry Lawson. The meter must have sunken into my soul, lol Thanks for the visit. SuZ

This is some epic, Suz. I'm impressed by the vividness and intensity of this allegorical piece. "to the fit the door of What Will Be?" "To lock Enigma's Mystery" ... great contrast. I realized that I don't think I've ever clicked on your Best Poems list ... I can see why this has drawn the attention it has.

Thanks Timothy: can you believe this is the first poem I ever wrote. My natural voice is iambic Tetrameter. Read my Butterflies of Saturn written around the same period if you like. After a year or two I branched out into Free Verse and trying different forms.

Superb Poetry, completely engulfs the reader inside your words. The last two lines of both final stanzas bear the 'meanings' of the poems and are outstanding..... Ivor

Thanks Ivor: These are the first two poems I wrote, and they seemed to come from nowhere after I started doing right brain exercises and meditation. Glad you enjoyed them....SuZ

Wow, and another thing, WOW...Goose bumps here! Every line a gem but if I were forced to pick a fav it would be: 'The nightmares all with voiceless screams' (Yikes!) Good stuff my friend and congrats...
