Wednesday 1/14/09 - "THE PACT"

(This one is a little on the weird side, but I take them as they come. This poem is a beautiful love story in eternity.)


They were sealed as one

In the pact they'd spun

By a silver wire they bent

A twist in figure eight

'Bout their wrist-crossed fate

The glint of thread tight circled the twain

Pale hand to hand - pulsing vein to vein

In an instant flash they jerked apart

But their flesh gave way before their heart

And a life line opened within the part

Their eyes locked tight as the life ebbed fore

Yet never a drop touched to the floor

Their sweet lives mingled each one to one

And they lay to rest their bodies poor

Never to part - ever more

Hey this sounds like a "Romeo and Juliet" or "Tristan Und Isolde" or any number of other pairings, real or imagined.

I'm sorry you did not date your poems, so's I could be sure you don't mean MOI!
