Oh yes - children can be cruel.
But that is an interesting poem, that you have conjured up.
Good work. *thumbs up*
Sarah Crawford chapter 1 . 5/13/2009
Excellent poem. Very well written. Your cynicism is perfect for this moment in time when Erik really did expect Christine to chose death over life as his bride.

That was brilliant! It is not only original, but it captures tremendous emotion and power with strenuous economy of words. I am most impressed. ~ml

By: The Cookie

If one perchance should cast a glance

Within the darkened room,

Beneath the stairs and ghostly glares-

An old forgotten tomb.

A casket sits amidst the mix

Of music, death, and prawns.

Although it not deserves a thought,

We’ll sing it strangled songs.

For look inside and see The Bride

of Horror’s Gruesome Glory,

A tiny thing, with which to bring

Some lovely, twisted story...

Of gasping breaths, and morbid deaths,

And here a poem or two.

Such work would be enough to lurk,

And leave a small review.

“O what is there? What more to share?”

The cookies loves and praises.

“There’s nothing more that I implore…

Unless it’s drunken dazes.”

I love the final lines:

"I do regret to say farewell—

Children can be so cruel."

That's so Erik to say that. :)

Heh, heh... Erik is finally calling Christine what she truly is: A child! Very good poetry... one thing I cannot write. _

This poem seems so obviously Erik - however do you capture him so well? The imagery was great, too; I love how you described everything.

In any case, the poem had me chuckling at the end(along with Erik, I suppose): "But I must leave you now, my pet / Within a child's hands / I do regret to say farewell / Children can be so cruel."


That's the best.
