Raven's Tears


Black tears of ebon dark the broken angel wept

For love of Raven mate she’d no more know

Protectively her minions swept muted skies of grey

Keeping watch on icy air currents ebb and flow


‘Twas the year the spring thaw forgot to come

Perhaps because winter past had claimed the one

who once flew with her to the land of dreams

Where hearts and souls absorb the sun


Two loving entities devoid of law of land

Sharing energizing lover’s kisses in mid-flight

To make love where moonbeams danced

Warm enfolding wings around each other tight


But when one tempts fate one cannot win

Transgression’s price comes much too high

For the broken heart of the Ravenous

That day The Raven tumbled from the sky…

How very sad when one is left behind to suffer without the other, no matter the reason. Your images are sad and tragic, and one can't help but feel it all in their own heart. I know I do. So well written, much emotion and great story-telling within this piece, as well. ~Elizabeth

I like "the spring thaw forgot to come". This is a remarkable poem, Fee. Dark, but vivid imagery. Almost a legend feel to it. Love and Hugs,

Awwwwwwwww... this is truly gripping and totally melting, Felix. This is wrought from a deep well-spring of feeling and knowing and I in particular LOVE that second stanza:

‘Twas the year the spring thaw forgot to come
Perhaps because winter past had claimed the one
who once flew with her to the land of dreams
Where hearts and souls absorb the sun

... so often I think this when I see solitary birds at this time of year looking a bit lost. This is a most poignant and powerful depiction of deep and unretrievable loss. Beautiful and haunting, bless you xx

Fee, This is a novel poem, there is much depth and emotion dripping from this page, words cannot really portray the sadness I feel as I read this, yet there is a beauty that blossoms of such a love...this is your best!~
Reviewed by Kathy Armijo 4/16/2010
The thoughts and emotions evoked by this poem are many. The overriding feeling is betrayal, but perhaps I am letting my past seep into this reading. Still, the melancholy permeates my being.

God bless you. Kathy

A sad story for the broken wings angel. There are a lot of them in this world. Wonderful write, Fee! I love the picture too. It's so beautifully-sad!!

Tis a sad thing when, two, devoid of law and land...
Leaves, one, SO distraught. . . this ravenous, on the river-banks!
One, so, so, wanting, more, mid-flight kissing and moonbeam
congressional get-it-on's. . . But, no!
She's been grounded, curled fetal, and alone. . . head heavy in a never-ending cold, graying winter that will never die...For it only kills what it already has consumed. . . no sun?

I hope so!
Excellent work, had me going...

Love and Peace~

How utterly tragic the tale you have unwound here, Fee. You've certainly captured the essence of the picture. Loved it!

Reviewed by George Carroll 4/16/2010
Emotions do carry us through life for without them we would feel nothing

Reviewed by Charlie 4/16/2010
I love your play on ravenous with raven. Makes me think of the whole poem as a metaphor. I've seen so many times, and from personal experience too, that when we lose someone (especially in a break-up) we turn inwards, and seem to have a frenzy feed on past emotions-- ravenous for the old times, regardless of how meager those times may have been. --Not the most healthy solution, as your poem would also suggest. Too, though, there's that spring that eventually will thaw. --Charlie

Let my chest to be free so my brother can rest his head on it and cry his sorrows away and with his tears wash away my own...
Kudos to you, Fee.
