Overlord by Chris Harris

Rate this Poem (5 best)


Hereafter like a memory
Crying in a safe place
Day or night forever
Stolen with all alibi
Witness to the chasing
All feeling with the sacred
Forgiven still sustaining
Unallied then descended

Dismantled of illusion
Seeming though undoubted
Releasing in diversion
Chancing with the user
Passive in detention
Absent of all censor
Strategic as the loyal
Defenceless then replacing

Befallen of charges
Eager still with guidance
Needing of false rumour
Failing with intention
Wasted in reflection
Lasting as endeavour
Colder still with passing
Unfaltered then devised
