FATED HERO FAKED

Bobby O

FATED HERO FAKED Remembering when his courage dwindled even though it built marooned self hate. Risking not, while escape untried though selfish choice owned shame of forever blame

An accepted course catapulted full views to conscious mind to horrify and decry betrayal. A thousand times before his own eyes he died and cried and knew this now is mine. Sage thought selects the fateful moment pitiful cowardice was stamped. Real truth cursed way worse as frail haunted every step before the pallid  act of proof 
it’s constant residence fulfilled  a destined doom

    Great read Bobby
    Sounds really personal rather than historical
    Like a coward dies a thousand deaths
    And you savored every one
    Special write

    A departure from accustomed style. Trying to be braver and not so dependent on constant rhyme. Appreciate the kind word. It means a lot. I’ve got some good examples of talent to stretch toward, yourself on top list.

      Even your reply is poetic
      thanks boss

        Simpatico

        So now you are ‘growing’ reflective on
        Me! Your poems already had me on jazz and basketball and this one will keep me on my auditory trip even longer- Word

        I get used to patterns and am making efforts to try different approach. This was sorta new.

        • Bobby O

          The gentle and kind touch you extend says so very much about your persona and genuine demeanor. From far away across a tiny pond finding a friend is rewarding on many levels. Thank you for adding extra pleasant moments that lead to smiles.
          PS- sometimes your poems have a noticeable British accent , er, except for that +18 project that was slightly squeaky in a non Victorian sorta way

            It just seemed impolite to say moaning.

            I saw the courage before I read your comments.. bold and rough, rugged like Whitman, musical like Ginsburg. Carry on sir. A good one to re-read!

            Fantastic job with this Bobby. I love the way you use assonance in this.

            • Bobby O

              Nice. I said that to a girl once and she left me the next day.

              • Thomas W Case
