Saint or Sinner


Persephone (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Your eyes are crystals
Looking to heaven
Fallen Catholic boy
Your poetry is beauty
Structured and even
Mother’s pride and joy

Your deeds are darkness
Poisoned chalice
Like a demon seed
Through the looking-glass
Rather like Alice
What do you breed?

Saint or sinner here
Standing so still
Blink and you’ll miss me
You’re too mercurial
Do just what you will
But don’t try to kiss me
I’m not Persephone
Not what you wish of me

  1. I smiled when I read this Helen, ‘fallen Catholic boy’ and saints and sinners, I loved the images you created as you could be talking about me in some ways. Though I’d like the think I was both, if that is possible…lol…maybe wishful thinking.

    Another fantastic piece with fine emotion and description.

  3. So I started following and forgot to go into my reader to click receive posts… so now that we have that sorted … smiles ~ the not so virtuous sinner, the bad boys the ones with edge that can mislead you off the cliff. How tempting they are at times though… nicely penned 🙂
