Visions of madness shimmer in silvery skies
Horizons of passion drown in timeless beauty
There is a voice so pure that can melt a Sun,
a fragrance so luring that can reap mortal breath
Once thou hath gazed into the eyes of a Siren,
love befalls in a kiss, upon whispers of death
An endless ocean swirls, ethereal waves bewail
— the sound of her cry haunts eons of dreams
In the deepest abyss, my soul shall forever sail

For a thousand years, I drifted in her song —
lost in restless fever of wanton seas
Gently I reached towards her long silvery hair;
embroidered in tempest of Love's odyssey
Tears of sapphire jewel oceans deep ...
luminous thoughts seeking the nectar of bliss
Among flesh and shadows, I crave evermore
Lips unveiled, blackness approaches —
my destiny entombed by the Siren's lore

— When the world turns forever still,
only the sound of her fleeting whispers remain,
like echoes of rain, suspended over the sea

"Once thou hath gazed into the eyes of a Siren,
love befalls in a kiss, upon whispers of death
An endless ocean swirls, ethereal waves bewail
— the sound of her cry haunts eons of dreams
In the deepest abyss, my soul shall forever sail"

And that is what made me cry.

This is beautiful! I love the way how you used imagery (both in the poem and the picture) to convey the beauty, danger, and mystery revolving around both sirens and, in effective, the ocean. Sheer brilliance, wonderfully elegant, excellent use of movement and sight ("Gently I reached towards her long silvery hair"), eloquently written. I am looking forward to reading and seeing more of your works. This is definitely one of my favorite poems.

(And props to the Shakespearean dialect :))

So, this is about me, right? :licking: I'm kidding.

On a more stylistic note, what I (so far) have found with your poetry is how strangely..... old it seems. Like it was written in another era. I'm not sure what I think of it yet.

I'm not sure if I like it, personally. I mean, I don't know. It's very different from my style. Not that I'm saying that's a bad thing.


Also, you TEASE. You reply to my comment, but not my note(s)? *pouts*

I adore how you bring in so many great elements. First, we have the passion of the narrator towards the Siren. Then we have the timelessness, with "a thousand years, I drifted in her song" and "When the world turns forever still,/only the sound of her fleeting whispers remain". Finally, we have mortality brought in like a dark thread with "mortal breath" and "whispers of death". In the end we are left with a woven tapestry of deep and wonderful themes. Amazing work.
