NOMAD VERSES: The poems I want

mindaviews redmoon marcos mordeno nomad verses

I want poems
that drown the noise of battles
lines written beneath
trees crowned with fireflies

I want poems
written beside pyres for heretics
on crimson pavements
in lonely prisons

I want poems
that flow like hemlock
down the veins of tyranny
a poison for despots

I want poems
that weave threads
of fear and despair
into a tapestry of dreams
