Vow Of The Highlander (eddy styx)


Vow Of The Highlander


Howling with frustrated rage you claim personal foul against me.
Snatching up the proverbial gauntlet, you slap my face with the vile stench of your steaming words.

Decrying impropriety of conduct against you, You say you seek me out.

Seek NOT that which you do not understand for you could be so unfortunate as to find me

Mother Brigid told me about monsters like you. What she didn't tell you about; was creatures like  me.

I will eat the beating heart of you, choke up the truth, spit it back at you and watch you be  consumed by the poison of your ignorance.

Be wary of things like me for I am the shadow of your reflection, and I am staring back at you.

I watch you admiring yourself, see your ever monotonous primping and flexing vanity, adjusting the  vacuity of your predatorial grin.

Practicing your smug persona within self-appointed judicial robes, your frailty is recognized and  duly noted, You narcissistic pompous peacock.

I know your dreary desires, all your little lusting, you creature of habit and civilized habitat.

You are a mere tourist in my jungle nightmare world of "shadow-walking" reclamation. Stray you not  a toenail off the marked pathways.

Your backyard is my field of hunt. I will stalk you until I have you in my sights. Then I will not  hesitate one nanosecond.

I will take you down and enjoy the fever of your blood as I drink from your life essence source. I  would surrender to death willingly  as long as I may hold you in my loving arms for an eternity of  death. I am hatred and I have already consumed your heart.

My focused desire is to suck the very life from your mortal form and I am longing for a release  from this mortal world.

I am relentless... I am the Harvester of soul's, and I come for YOU!

          You will set 'eddy' on that troll-like guy! There was one on a site I knew. He used to reply for a while to every poem in the vein of 'I don't care much for your poem' or 'Not much in this poem worth reading'.

          • Candlewitch

            my troll, brian, was much worse...he called me disgusting names and threatened me. I just don't understand guys like that. if they don't like the poet, then they shouldn't read or comment on the poems! sorry about that jerk!!!

            ever, eddy

            I will eat the beating heart of you, choke up the truth, spit it back at you and watch you be consumed by the poison of your ignorance. I love this part of you poem more than anything. So brilliant. I will save your poem so I can go back and reread it. Thank you

                ok my eddy my friend....this down and about as dark as dark can get! it's a brilliant piece! i can feel the anger oozing out and it had to be so gratifying to write! i hope this brian person who 'inspired' it read it though if he has he'll probably not give you the satisfaction of saying so! to be honest i really relate cos your words are pretty much how i feel about the britch! it's beyond hate cos hate is too closely related to love. nay it's the strongest form of detest, despise, abhor, well you get my drift!!! glad i came on the site and read this! i feel somewhat gratified myself by your expressing what i've felt for so long....LOL!!! OX
                :)

                • Candlewitch

                  dear Val,

                  I'm so glad that you got some satisfaction out of this write :) the britch deserves a good scalding from you! I hope you toast her tootsies!!!

                  ever, eddy
                  *hugs, Cat

                  • valene

                    Cat,
                    after reading your comments I can understand where you (sorry eddy stix) is coming from. Beautifully written as always.
                    Attacking other writers on a forum like this is a huge NO NO. We are here to show what we can do and enjoy what others do. Period.

                    • Candlewitch

                      dear Fred,

                      very well stated! some people are so sour that they are only happy when they are hurting others. I feel sorry for them(after I stop being hurt and angry) have a good day!

                      *hugs, Cat
                      ever, eddy
