Poetry
Devil player
faded charm
mindless trickster
she dared fight, 

One fair combat—
all she wanted
yet, the truth is,
he,

Biding adieu
to his wonders
such a let down
ice rock heart

She kept weaving
her wild verses
while she smoked,
she drank, 
she laughed

Yet he fired 
treason bullets
thinking he’d 
just reaped
her heart

He believed
her wounds
were deadly—
lousy honour,
crumbling Bard!

Yet the stars, 
my friends,
just wished
that night,

For old-time
cheats
to burn
to ash

And with fighting
all abandoned,
on forged devil
with a mask

She poured 
unforgiving lava,
blazing verses,
flaming darts

Biding adieu
to his wonders
while

  1. I like the ‘She; here. So beautifully you carved her stature. Enjoyed the style and flow of words.

  2. This is such a powerful piece VB. It’s something you should be proud of and the time you took to ‘get it right’. You have woven the story well and I love how the protagonist finds her feet and strength in the end 💪 Keep writing Warrior 💜
