Ramification’s Plight

At last, a seductress who received
all that she deserved, for tearing
out the hearts of love struck fools
and leaving them to perish miserably,
hoisting the still beating muscles
upon the chain, in replace of a belt,
so all may see the ruin she does proclaim,
while the heart is diminished
into withered dust. The love she has
inside, inadvertently fell upon
the face of a common man,
who she believed unworthy,
despite many a desire booming,
and now, months after the removal
of such a feeling from her life,
not a day goes by when his face
is seldom far from haunting hers.
Choosiness might be an available virtue,
but eventually, the irony of fickle ploys,
catches unfeeling villainy, and tortures
them with the agony they so often
frequented upon others.

About totalovrdose

I am an online journalist, video game reviewer, mental health advocate and post graduate university student. I am a massive video gaming geek; a lover of intellectual conversations; an award winning procrastinator; a devilishly charming nuisance and the definition of 'fun' (sometimes). My blog is filled with many a soporific love poem, and is simply the beginning in my quest to become a published author. Please stop by and say 'Hi!' (that rhymes!) :D
