Neither Pomegranate Seed Nor Serpents Tongue: An Everbound ( My W.I.P ) Poem.

by Moonlily


Neither pomegranate seeds nor serpent's tongue brought me here.

I can't complain that I was deceived into the throne.

Into these golden halls, you once called home.

You've left me little choice but to roam alone.

Until your memory returns to me, these days I keep it close to my chest.

Like a bird in a cage.

A pretty song bird who began to fade.

You weren't a cruel king of death, tricking me to eat blood-red seeds.

As if they grew from the souls you reaped.

Nor a serpent bidding for attention, sin lacing your tongue with every word.

Tempting me further into a land of sin in which I only half know.

But still  I am plucked from my mother's land.

A once fragile flower left to wonder.

By your hand…

Hello, I am Anorak and I'm reviewing using the YMS'more method.

Top Graham Cracker - What I Know

I'm guessing the main character was taken out of her life and forced into something cruel. Being controlled by a sick person or emperor. The main character is slowly losing hope; and being left alone. I could be completely wrong, but that's just my interpretation. ^^

Slightly Burnt Marshmallow - Room for Improvements

There isn't particularly anything that needs to be improved. I really like how you write. I just suggest looking for more creative metaphors and similes. There are many resources online for ideas. Overall, a great piece!

Chocolate Bar - Highlights of the Piece

I loved these lines:

"You weren't a cruel king of death, tricking me to eat blood-red seeds.

As if they grew from the souls you reaped.

Nor a serpent bidding for attention, sin lacing your tongue with every word.

Tempting me further into a land of sin in which I only half know."

It has great emotion and is so dramatic. It makes you wonder who they are referring to and what they have done or brought the narrator through. Great work!

Closing Graham Cracker - Closing Thoughts

This is a great piece of poetry. Even though I've never read your novel before, it gives me great curiosity as to what it's about. Wonderful work, please keep writing! <3

just saw this and i think its really good! Its nice, sweet, short, and simple. The poem is really good at conveying such a simple idea in a very short amount of time.
I think my favorite lines have to be:

"Nor a serpent bidding for attention, sin lacing your tongue with every word.
Tempting me further into a land of sin in which I only half know."

Although I do think that the repeat of the word 'sin' doesn't exactly sit well, maybe just change it for the first line! Perhaps something like 'temptation' would suit it better. Though everything else is chef's kiss! :)





Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
