Accursed Lust

Freya Pickard has invented a poetic structure she calls Freyan Verse:

Freyan Verse consists of 5 stanzas, each containing 7 lines. The seventh line of verses two and four overlap with line one of verses three and five. … Lines one and seven of each verse contain just one word. Each poem is designed to be read both vertically and horizontally. You can read each verse separately, and, you can also read the poem as a whole.

Being very much a fan of unusual poetic forms, I thought I’d give it a try myself…

passion love
fruit of the living a transcendent consciousness
an ephemeral delight of the world’s spectacular mystery
too swift consumed drink kiss by kiss
and all the more treasured perilous perfection its infinitely varied tastes
nectar of the jealous heart the scarlet that stains the soul is divine and wasted on mortal
blood is life
a tear spilled from the vein is exquisite in the anticipation! gift of time in excess
rivulet of pleasure raw yet bountiful in regret; accursed gift of eternity
tantalising; intoxicating elixir robbing the years of meaning
oh! the naked neck stripping the days of vitality
incites a cruel and terrible existence is constant
lust death
