ELEGY ( FOR LOVE ) By Echem John

ELEGY ( FOR LOVE )

Culled From My Anthology: Goddess Of Idoto

A shallow pit without brier
All I remember
Of the night of sinister—
Sirens of processive dirges
For epiphany of rot times
The mourner, in black
Weeping in the dark
Sugarplum comeback…
I heard the blubber
Of a lover
Poignant prickles
piercing deep
With proboscis of lost
Kiss-—
Slain by swords
Of lying tongues
Buried in a churchyard–the
Heart
Where eagles descend
With cruel claws
And ravens too caw
With monotone
That pierces the soul—
Your dirges, on labyrinths
And highways
Painful verses of reverie on
The face—-
You confucius opium
That betrays one for another
And another for another
Let no man puts asunder…
So much joy at birth
Much more pain at death
A song of sorrow paws
The air
Exhumed from the catafalque
Of gloom
Plowing the heart like juju—-
Dissonant eyeballs blinking
At images beyond barricades
Of the beginning
As you are laid to rest
Though lovers blubber restless—
