Of Odes and Woes

December 6, 2018


Ode to the darkest nights where my heart does lie
Woe to those who pull me out, at least those who try.
Ode to the darkest moors, where my secrets don’t unfold
Woe to the sunlit sky, where confessions be told.
Ode to the hopes I lost
Woe to the pain it cost.
Ode and forevermore; let thy darkest thoughts prevail
Woe to eternity, death never does fail.
Ode to calamity
Woe to humanity
The light of the sky, oh how it lies!
Woe to the false blue, and blinding bright
Ode to the dark hues and the blackest night.
Ode to the red drip, drip, dripping
Ode to the dead
Ode to life, slip, slip, slipping.
Woe to the laughs of the jovial minds
Woe to the living
Woe to the wondrous finds.
Ode to the darkest nights where my heart does lie
Woe to those who pull me out, at least those who try.

    This was amazing! Well done, Mina. I sense Poe and Dickinson inspiration?

    This was so cool! Nice job, it had a great rhythm to it. I loved how you had the first two lines become the last two, it sound awesome.
