Between
Across the span of my heart,
Two women held me between.
One much too familiar,
The other, rarely seen.
My Siren's songs coldly cryptic,
Yet, forever in my ears.
O' Enchantress apocalyptic,
Risen from malignant tears.
I gave them all I could,
Though in truth,
I wished it more.
I lived in moments shared
With doting saint,
And wanton whore.

My spirit seemed reluctant;
My intellect too weak
To turn around and face me
Along this one-way street.
Author's Notes:
Inspired by Ross McCague's 'Show me'

Do you have bad days? once I seen the award at the top of the page, I just knew it was going to be a cracker. Thought provoking and brave - Rob

My Siren's songs coldly cryptic,
Yet, forever in my ears.
O' Enchantress apocalyptic,
Risen from malignant tears.

I can see why you got an award for this.

I don't know what floors me more, Jolen....Your way with words, or people's reaction to them. I love reading both your poems and the comments left behind. Look at how you inspire and affect people. That's a hell of an accomplishment. Congratulations on a very much deserved gold.

Comment By: FreeChuck on January 1, 2007 06:06:13 PM Report

I was looking for myself once...only to find me looking for myself...it was strange experience.  I like this one.

So many different styles you show us Sorceress, each one is incredible. This is just terrific, Joe
Comment By: FreePelagic Mind on December 21, 2006 08:36:22 AM Report

It’s an inspired piece posted under "nature", the nature of people? Well perhaps, but it succeeds in separating that irresistible drive in all of us from our “sensible self” intellect...Especially when we know what we are doing is self destructive... As Len says below you have come a long way, and this is a remarkable poem….


Comment By: FreeJames Thomas Whitworth on December 17, 2006 10:03:48 PM Report
Though this is not done in your usual style, you, once again, show yourself to be a perfect mistress of the written word.

Facing oneself is scary...the sooner it's done the better. How well you write my friend.

Wow.  This is excellent work my friend.  The last two lines - perfection!  Very introspective and revealing.  I loved it. ~Pam
Comment By: FreeAdri on December 15, 2006 08:31:07 PM Report
OH.MY.SOUL!!!  You just have this way...  This way to make ordinary words sounds like songs of angels...  I am speechless.  I am with John, I bow you your brilliance.a

"My Siren's songs coldly cryptic
Yet, forever ringing in my ears.
O' enchantress! boldly apocalyptic,
Risen from her cocoon of malignant tears."

That's what I call poetry!! This is so imaginitive, Aces. At the risk of slobbering, this makes a strong impact because of the original subject of being torn between two opposite, undeniable forces and the sheer beauty of the wording..You've come a loooong way, baby!  :O)..Yereverlovinfurball

Gorgeous, It's got something about it which really attracts me to it, as with all your amazing poems.  

Comment By: FreeLinear Z on December 15, 2006 04:48:05 PM Report


Beautiful. It’s clear, concise and simple, yet still elegant
and engaging. As always you have excelled yourself. Bless you for sharing these
words, that you have, written down, in such a great, order.



Comment By: FreeLast Temple Knight on December 15, 2006 02:32:13 PM Report

Human nature explored on such a personal level... I bow to your skill.


Comment By: FreeJoe Petro on December 15, 2006 02:13:50 PM Report
Where do you come up with this stuff! The eternal struggle with one's self has been written about before....BUT NOT LIKE THIS. This relatively short piece zooms the reader through images and emotions. No answers at the end, just the experience of the ride. jp
Comment By: FreeThe Mystic Poet on December 15, 2006 01:33:37 PM Report
LOL, I am sooo glad you are posting more! It has been way to long. How cruel of thee to have deprived us little lambs of your shinning talent!
Comment By: FreeChuck on December 15, 2006 01:26:10 PM Report

Oh the pain and the suffering…it’s great to be alive… what are we so damn afraid of anyway?... of course the answer to that is… ourselves… and for me…this is a beautiful picture of that very feeling… fantastic!


Comment By: FreeLady Dragonwyck on December 15, 2006 12:04:13 PM Report
Miss Sorceress:  GREAT write...........quite a pair  (doting saint and wanton whore) !!

If I were in the witness box, as I often am, I would say the saint/whore dichotomy is one that is front and centre in the male mind, with the exception of the gentile owner of this site who is blissfully transcendent of "the rag and bone shop of the heart". However, for the average bloke, it's the club and the pew, the cradle and the grave, the lover and the mistress, the stern countenance and the wily peak, and so on and so forth. Carl Jung suggested we were half way between whatever position we posited and its opposite. I don't argue too much with smarter people, especially when they speak German and I am trying to face my murderous self.
Comment By: FreeRoss McCague Rosco on December 15, 2006 10:17:44 AM Report
Perhaps it should be wanton witch. That was what your username was and it's more fitting unless bravado is the operative here. I know you have a dual system of language that doesn't weight the words the same way in the dom/sub mode, however..... I have to think.

 

Smashing if I do say so myself.

Comment By: FreeGlata on December 15, 2006 10:05:04 AM Report
Absolutely amazing, J! Your expression...the feelings of being torn between who you are and who people expect you to be...the struggles to be YOU. Positively fantastic!

Loved the way this flowed and love the stark clarity revealed..

Oh, and LOVE YOU TOO! hehe

Hugs...

Glata
