Warm blood drips upon the pearl white snow
freezing into droplets that shine and glow
Red like the colour of his once livid cheeks
It frames the sculpture I have carved on this peak

An artwork made so terrifyingly sublime
I believe that such a thing would be condemned as a crime
But woe betide the unfortunate soul
For the poor man stumbled into the freezing cold...

I remember his features in his moment of death
Hope and despair, intermingled as one
A shine of reality as he opens the door
and steps into the hell from the days of yore

From then he has passed into my loving care
His body as a shell and so I lay it bare
I paint it with colours, to frame the moment of death
and lay it with the others in the mountain's breast

Here in the silence, within the womb of the earth
You can view the masterpiece that I have birthed
A giant of corpses, sewn with flesh
Tattooed with the faces of eternal rest...

"Ah, indeed I am a genius..."

Fer those o' ye who don't know yet. Chen is workin' tirelessly inbetween his studies t' come up with new stories an' new techniques fer writin' poetry.

Bein' a writer is his dream an' so I hope ye'll all enjoy this new piece that he's produced. It's a revisit o' his old rhyming style with a slightly different arrangement in structure.

Let us know how it was received ^^ Yer comments will make him work much harder :3

This sounds like a necromancer living in a mountain and building some kind of monster out of people who've died there.

This sounds like a Nightwish song, reminds me a little of Cadence of Her Last Breath by them off their album Dark Passion Play. It's really good, very creepy, but good :)

This is very nice. :D :D. The structure of describing the same image but with different interpretations can be quite good if done well (which in this case, it damn is XD). I'm sort of confused by the flow. Each stanza on its own can stand by itself as a separate, very well done image (I love the 3rd stanza, it just feels so inter-connected) ;), though I don't get the flow. Can you explain a bit more? It would make this amazing poem even more astounding :D if you could.

It's so enchanting... and haunting.
Reminds me of the fairytale 'Snow Queen' and 'How Edelweiss Came to Be'.
Simply beautiful.

This piece is very discriptive. I really like how it seems to be open to interpretation.
