At long last a remedy has been discovered #medicine #fantasy #poetry


The lady a victim of a cursed poisoned rain

her breathy, alluring beauty consumed him causing heart’s pain

How was a knight to endure?

Vigilantly he sought her life’s cure

In a relentless quest

he travelled on her behest

seeing the world high and wide

clock’s hands moved life’s ebb and tide

he found a man who conjured infallible potions

“What will you give to spare your emotions?

she may already have met her grave”

“time will allow me her to save”

“alas it is too late

you both must endure your fate

take this… one sip will heal

two …you will no longer feel

three… is her demise (or yours)

“what is it ? says he with wide open eyes”

“to answer said knight’s query

it is a prozac and purple magic slurry”

Flipside Records has great word prompts weekly. This week was no exception

  1. Can I just say how much I love the word “maudlin?” Thanks for the visit and comment. 🙂 Shawna helps make the creative process even more fun, and I can tell you thoroughly enjoyed it.

  2. What a funny ending. 🙂 I’m crazy about your opening line: “The lady a victim of a cursed poisoned rain” … I just love made-up stories in poetry form. And the more magical, the better. This makes me so happy!

    I like this part:
    “seeing the world high and wide
    clock’s hands moved life’s ebb and tide”

    I love that this is the centerpiece/theme of the poem: “What will you give to spare your emotions?”

    You’ve left me wondering what he decided and what I would do, finishing the story in my mind. That’s always the best gift a poem can give a reader. Thank you for writing for me. 🙂
