Glistening feathers,
Blacker than the darkest night
A specter weaving through the clouds
Majestic is his flight

So beautiful,
Piercing eyes reach into my soul
From the netherworld he will come
When I am no longer whole

An enigma,
Spawned from the magick of old
In a lingering mist he waits
Cast in velvet shadows so cold

Silent wind,
Roses fall upon my grave
Talons clasp my fading spirit
A fallen love will he save

Destiny,
Shrieks echo across a leaden sky
Life descends to the arms of death
Scarlet tears begin to fly

Tragedy,
Memories my heart cannot sever
Broken dreams whisper
real love is forever



Arthur Crow 2012
One of the first poems I ever wrote, many Moons ago...

This is a pretty cool poem, magical with some awesome visuals. However, I do think that in certain parts, the rhyme feels too forced and breaks the rhythm. While the rhyming was kept up well throughout the whole thing, there's a few stanzas which loose specific ideas and end up just becoming random descriptions with no real direction. Other than that, I really enjoyed this. :)

It's very well done, my friend. I love the imagery of the crow and death, rebirth, and the soul's flight into the otherworlds. Your imagery paints this well, and the word choice moves the reader along smoothly.

... The Crow reminds me of the TV Series "The Crow"... and the very last line was... beyond words... as close to the first episode of the series as they come... perfect!

As a poem itself, its not half that bad; its a good start. Its consistent, in my honest opinion.

The rhyme scheme isn't consistent, though; but I'll give it a pass - it 'twas after all your first poem. It deserves that flexibility.

:clap: keep writing :) keep posting.

Truely one of the best I've heard; has a certain modern Edgar Allen Poe feel to it.

For such a somber topic, "The Crow" manages to provide a heartfelt, encouraging tone throughout the entire poem. The rhyme scheme, while obvious, is eclipsed by the vivid pictures each stanza paints. The imagery used here is as amazing as ever and honestly makes me wish I had 'crow love'.

This is awesome work once again!
