Name

I name you darkness
I name you death
I name you whispers
On dying breath

I name you coldness
I name you vice
I named you once and
I won’t name twice

I call your name now
I call you out
I call you certainty
Riddled by doubt

I call you wicked
I call you lost
I’ll call your piper
You name the cost

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  4. Lovely Helen, I agree with the above comment, there is a very chilly feel about it.

  5. Sticks and stones… :-) Love it.
    Rhyme, meter, flow, rhythm, tone, concept… it’s so hard to do one of these well in a poem. But it looks easy when you do because they all always come out so well. :-)

    Fateful forbidding in this ominous piece. Skillful in theme and style Helen – well done.

  10. Wonderfully written Helena, you have that touch and a way with words! God bless!
