Death in the Month of Songs


Hello guys!

Just thought I would post a poem, a few lines which I DO NOT own but copied from the PC game “Dishonored”. I enjoyed the lines, hope you do, too!

(The game traces it’s of existence from a longer work, translated from old Serkonan – By Anisa Mateo of Serkonos)

Death in the Month of Songs:

She was shy in the Month of Hearths
Hiding from my scented letters
A sun-dappled cure for my loneliness

She was smiling in the Month of Rain
Eating figs straight from the tree
A dream of sailing around the Isles

She was wed in the Month of Clans
To her sailor cousin from Cullero
A shrill bird, drilling at my chest

She was dying in the Month of Songs
Struck by a disease from the East
A terrible kiss on her distant lips

Tragic, is what the lines define. Provokes any thoughts? Please do share.

      • Ummm, thanks for the positivity, Miss but honestly speaking, I failed in my college exams:( Hope I’ll get better in my Engineering ones.
        Thanks again, you never cease to unfold the silver linings in any dark cloud!
        Hoping for a bright future.


      • Gosh, so sorry about that – many of us have failed an exam or two – grade averages are not the measure of a man – they only measure hours of real life lost to studying…chin up and focus forward. You’re a good soul and it will all work out for you.
        I’m one of six siblings – my grades were the worst in the group – if we were to compare salaries after college – not to belittle their efforts or their brilliance – my salary became the highest by far –
        not that salary is the measure of a person’s worth either – I’m trying to illustrate my point to give you positive vibes 🙂
        Keep the faith

        Thanks Miss AnnMarie, I’m sorry if that made you sad.., didn’t intend to. But as for the present time, I’ll share my Engg. scores and I’m sure I won’t disappoint you this time:)
