The Tower of London

by ranfuchs (writer), CT, USA, February 06, 2010

Everyone takes the limits of his own vision for the limits of the world. Arthur Schopenhauer

The beauty of the blood-soaked jewellery
Cannot distract the young couple on the travelator
From gazing into each other’s eyes

Not even the screams of the ghosts
Whose organs are burnt
In front of their not-yet-dying eyes
Can stop their passionate kissing.

It was a flicker of a dress
A glimpse
And an argument
That sent them to never see each other again.

While the ravens, feasting on their ancestors stories
Are still waiting
For the return of the days
When warm flesh is served
With every meal.

Fantastic imagery with a good rhythm, I'd like to see you rework it to a more standard stanza format rather than free form. is a simple yet great resource I found one day and keep handy when writing poetry.

Robert Frost would work and rework his pieces like a sculptor with his hammer/chisel to marble. I see that kind of imagery in "The Tower of London" and with a bit more structure this piece could very far!
