The Fifth Element

More empirical than spiritual
A God-fearing atheist who denounces Christ
No affinity for the Trinity
Try as I might

Unsure if the parlance of balance
Extends to the heavenly plane
Orate in spectacular vernacular
Parry, thrust, feign

I'm the original voyeur warrior
Who does battle in your name
Undress under duress
It drives me absolutely insane

Trigrams unravel for four:
Water falls as in rain
Wind blows - Earth grows
Fire burns a sensual pain

I charm her right out of her armor
Breastplate of righteousness falls to the floor
She girds my staff on her behalf
Guiding, gliding, colliding, riding & coinciding galore

Pure evil's a disheveling devil
That cloven-hoofed menace lament
I hover to cover all bases
And start banging the fifth element

Self, Sex, Warrior Chicks and Higher Beings...I think you covered it all. I have Conan in my head now O_o

Single-handedly my greatest accomplishment to date. Some of my poems I adore beyond measure, others I'm saddened they never reached their full potential. Some were easy and flowed, some were difficult and I fought with writing let alone posting them.

Some when I re-read give me goosebumps still.

But this...this is a masterpiece.

Thank you.

I love your poetry. It's thought provoking. Not too many things in this day and age have that key element that make greatness. Almost everything is catered around making someone not think. If machines did take total control I highly doubt most would even notice.

...xcept for maybe the eradication of man.

And you know how a musician feels about their work. What you wrote explains how I feel about my compositions.

Thank you. What strikes me most about the sole composition of yours that I've heard was your ability to set out to create exactly the sort of period sound you set out to create. I don't even comprehend how composers can do that.
