Crystal drops

Abstract halos divine
Complimenting the beatific smile
Glimpses of benign faith
Tempting the arcane wraiths
Glorious, impassioned sermons
Awash with holy jargon
Pledging blissful liberation
From warped soulful oppression
The flowing billowy robes
And earnest dulcet tones
Charm the zealous minds
While rendering spirits blind
Heralding darker nights
That malign the pristine light

    You’ve really captured a lot in these two lines. Love the title to…crystal tends to shatter when it drops.

  4. Great piece of writing, Dark Lord. I particularly like these two lines:

    ‘…Pledging blissful liberation
    From warped soulful oppression…’

    They say it all.

  5. nice one! I also really like the title… crystal… so beautiful… and special.. unless dropped… (or thrown across the room ;).

  6. Oh, that last line sure packed a punch… I love where this took me… Hard to explain, but wow. I could almost sense the evil smile on some priest’s face as he swings his incense censer… Powerful work.

    (Thanks for your recent comment on the Little Writer… for now, most of my focus is on my innerward journey, so I started a blog to explore just that.. Hope to see you there!)

  7. very beautiful dear:)

  8. oh yes freedom from oppression freedom from fear freedom from pain…Divine
