Poetry by Jeff Green


Amera the witch

The mistress of the dark and evil tale
Has spun a web to draw the  reader in
With poetry that surely cannot fail
You show the world the consequence of sin

While mystery encloses all your soul
And darkness your companion out of choice
A terror in your audience the goal
Then necessary outcome of your voice

You’d think you were an ancient twisted crone
Who strives to drag the good to evil ends
Condemned to live a dreadful life alone
Not garlanded with many cheerful friends

The Queen of all that’s dark in poetry
The beauty who has set the terror free
