My Goddess


Her breath came in short gasps

The cold hair slicing through her chest

and she held his head in her lap

praying she could make his passing easier


I feel as if Iíve lived a million years

he had told her the night before as he

held her tightly in his dark arms,

slowly drowning her in the moonlight.


I feel as if Iíve lived a million years

with you, she replied

He smiled and closed his eyes,

leaning back against her satin pillows

entwining her white hair between his

slender fingers


It will never end, he told her, his red eyes

squeezed shut against the silver glow he

had before praised, and now despised.


She held her hand over his eyes and kept

her face bent over his, her lips inches from

his that were speckled with blood


Neither expressed their love in words

For her it would be to admit,

Him in a sense to deny what he strove

To tell her for a century

And he knew she knew


My goddess has forsaken me

He whispered and she shook her head

I am your Goddess


You are my goddess

He repeats, entwining his fingers

in her hair and breathing his last.


My Goddess

Aw that's really nice! I'm enjoying your foray into poems my sweet!

:-) Chelsea Castonguay replies: "Eh I hates poems!"

Oh no! *sniff* I really did enjoy that, and I can't say that about a lot of poetry (especially those that don't rhyme). I love evil guys--and I know, he didn't seem evil...but to deny a person's liberty, you know. I really did appreciate this.

This is wonderful! I'm a great drow fan. Actually I've written a whole bunch of stories about two of them (the stories are in German, though ...). This poem is really beautiful because there is tragedy but also this feeling of ... hmm ... coldness, I think. Don't get me wrong. There is a lot of emotion there but as you wrote - a drow would not admit it openly. The emotion bubbles beneath the surface, threatens to break out every moment but doesn't. The tension you create is amazing.

:-) Chelsea Castonguay replies: "Thanks, that's exactly what I was trying to get at. They DO care but even death won't get them to admit it."

Very, very excellent. I love poetry, and I mus say that you work extremely well with creating it. I feel as though I can become either character. You put that much emotion into it. Great job.

1 Chelsea Castonguay replies: "Whoa, that's too generous a comment, but thanks all the same!! You're too nice to me."

That was neither "too generous" nor "too nice." If anything, it wasn't good enough. You may not see the truth in what I'm saying, but fellow writers can. You just need to see that I'm being a critic, just as they are.

:-) Chelsea Castonguay replies: "*blushes* yeah yeah..."

Wow, such a caring female drow. very emotional. wonderful. love the style. great poem.

:-) Chelsea Castonguay replies: "Why, thank you a lot. I know, I'm surprised she cared as much as she did. I would've thought she'd just rip his heart out with her bare hands and be done with it but you know, drow are very confusing creatures."
