Untimely Frost - Dark Poetry Anthology

Posted by Randi on Tuesday, May 16, 2017

What they want:
Shakespeare’s Capulet said:

“She’s cold.
Her blood is settled, and her joints are stiff.
Life and these lips have long been separated.
Death lies on her like an untimely frost
Upon the sweetest flower of all the field.”

The beauty and sadness of the imagery in these words grabs your heart like the cold hand of death. You can imagine the darkness as it closed in on Juliette, and the anguish she must have felt in those final moments.

Darkness and death can be beautiful and terrifying. Fear wears many masks, and is the strongest of our emotions when it comes to survival. Send us your darkest poetry, reach out and grasp our very souls with your words and make your mark like an untimely frost.
