Dust And Ash

And like trouble, when one comes along, another is soon behind it. I hope you can clearly see the inspiration to this.

’tis no secret more,
In depth of wicked evil,
That harms the soul as such
A tale told without a tongue.
For such an act of
Treacherous stain,
In all its hellish glory
Does nought but tell the story
Of thy truth.
And O, such a truth;
In all my days, a love as such
So heavenly gifted, and yet,
Reveals itself to be nought but
Dust and ash, dust. And ash.

  1. This reminds me of work by the Romantics. Well written.

      Thank you. I do love the language of Shakespeare, and I often try and write my own version of it. I don’t think I’m quite there yet, but I will keep trying! Thanks for your constant support.

  2. Very much in keeping with Shakespeare in style and content. I think you’ve captured his essence admirably.
