Ravenous for Might

ravenous heart, bidding my soul for might,

giving me glitches, skin straining, blotched red,

that could plunge me, into rivers of plight,

.

blinded by nefarious spells of night,

seeking frigidness, writhing in the bed,

ravenous heart, bidding my soul, for might,

.

flaking fungi, of my carcass of blight,

shrapnel of abhorrence, into me bred,

which could plunge me, into rivers of plight,

.

disdained, thrust into the nightmares of fright,

feathers of innocence, having been shed,

by ravenous heart, bidding soul for might,

.

insane ramblings, getting my name ignite,

into a blaze, devouring my life threads,

plunging me, into the rivers of plight,

.

unnamed, my remnants run into contrite

of identity, dissolved in rites, fed

by ravenous heart, bidding soul for might,

not mine, I plunge into rivers of plight

.

  1. This is a strong poem, HA. The villanelle form works the message well. The repetition of the ‘ravenous heart’ lines chills a bit…but drives the point home!
