Favorite Quote:
"When I said that Mercy stood
Within the borders by the wood,
I meant the lenient beast with claws
And bloody swift-dispatching jaws."

In the darkness of the night we heard screams,
That bellowed like winds into the boughs boughs of weak evergreens,
They said no more than "That is love."
So we stood appalled amid inky shadows,
That writhed between silhouetted bodies,
Whose gazes were drawn bare with the grief of too many unknown sorrows.
"This is how it ends." They spoke.

The author's comments:
I found this poem wrinkled up and shoved between the pages of my science text book. I can't remember how long ago I wrote it or what it means so being able to interpret one of my own poems was an interesting experience.
