King Damastocles

King Damastocles sonnet poems

Photo by Xubaet

My afflicting Evil precedes our God
himself; at dawn was born in turbulent
oceans, sunken ravines that few had trod,
ripe with fruits of ever-present torment.
People rejoiced at my each rising word,
trees uproot with the gesture of my hand.
Though I am shepherd to my joyous herd,
no more joy have I in rule, nor command.
I feel my hidden beat hissing faintly.
My palace is but a prison of dread;
so unrelentlessly, unceasingly
do ancient curses echo from the dead.

Now he treads in swamps of malevolence,
forever trapped in blind obedience.
