Tomas Gonzalez-BellMaria BrandtEnglish 213-002May 18, 2018Final Poems Part 9Villanelle: Dawn of A Battle Why have you drawn that mighty sword?I too can cause great harm.This I tell you before we go forward. The one who falters blood will be poured Out, and which one of us has charm?Now I shall draw my mighty sword.Our lives should be worth more, we can’t affordto continue this cycle and keep taking up arms.This I tell you before we go forward.Though our clans have warred and caused the other great harm.We do not need to draw our mighty swords.Can we just cut the cordthat binds us? and settle our affair without being harmed.This I tell you before we go forward.Let not our lives be taken by the others sword,
Let us forsake hostility and finally disarm.Let us sheath these mighty swords.This I tell you, so we can go forward.Free Form: Bloody Curved EdgeMy pierced flesh can’t contain the bloodflowing out like a crimson river.The man who once beseeched my heartnow steals it by force, no mercy,just those amber eyes, but his eyes are blue.I know his eyes, I remember getting lost in them,how they shined like sapphires, they were so bright and full of love for me, not these dull muddy imposters. Death lurks behinds those windows nothing human.
