Toxic Emotions Need To Be Allowed To Wither;
To Release An Unearthing Into A New Freedom of Emotional Wealth.....
Birthing Beauty from Cacoons Darkness...

Black Locust


Unearthed in the dim grounds

by the staunch oak roots;

stability of jasmines honey dew

are no longer flourishing.


In the laurels of the heart

from the pulpit of perseverance;

the protective grounds

of lovely blooms no longer grow.


Within the delirium swelled

of forbidden hemlocks poisons;

bark of the black locust now lay

in the foliages of lost decay.


Coming forth within the beacons

of moonseeds last ported eye;

an unrighteous fortress

is now hidden within a wall of stones.

Hello Vickie,

What a fabulous image - and a very depthful, emotive penning.

swelling delirius lashed with hemlocks poisoning...but you can't even if you try to bend or break the oak of your spirit.

Reviewed by Felix Perry 4/12/2008
From out of the shadows springs the echoes of your voice as this write, intense and gothic almost brings the reader into an ominous picture. Deep.

Reviewed by R Beeman 4/12/2008
i love the subtle darkness to this write. very natural and revealing. an escape into the stone, yet no way is found. a picture painted in deep words that many can relate too by their own souls if they are brave enough to dig that deep and feel the roots of oak and taste the taint of poisons elixir.

as always embraced i am.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 4/11/2008
Just rings of a symbollic tortured soul begging to be set free, very descriptive and full of colorful images....

Be always safe,
Reviewed by Gianetta Ellis 4/11/2008
Very intriguing "feel" to this poem. It felt very "pagan" to me, but I'm not sure I could explain why. There's often a sense of the mysterious in your writing that begs the reader to return to your words.
Reviewed by Regis Auffray 4/11/2008
I surely do not mean this in a "bad" way but your verses remind me of the witches in Shakespeare's "Macbeth." Well done, girl. Love, peace, hugs, and best wishes,
