"The Gods of Mars" by Edgar Rice Burroughs

Started by Edward Teach. Last reply by Sky God Aug 24, 2014. 3 Replies

Burroughs wrote the original Tarzan books. The God's of Mars is the second in a series. It is a beautiful metaphor for religious absurdity. Not to give too much away, but Mars is depicted as a planet with multiple races, each having its own…Continue

Oh I love it Tony!

You are a great poet!

Just beautiful!

Hey Steph. This is a dark one. Started coming when I was re-reading the Dragonlance novels this past week. Tanis was talking to Flint about coming face to face with Takhisis, and how he desperately wanted to worship her.  Like he said, after all, she was a god. The Dark Queen.


I gaze upon your dark majestic beauty,

your countenance haunting, stark, aloof.

You sit upon your stygian throne, ruling

those that gaze upon you.


Approaching, kneeling to worship, I surrender my fate

as I proffer a single white rose. It pales, overshadowed

by your alabaster skin.Its smell cloying, treacly, fecund

by your silence.


I breathe deeply. In the gathering gloom, corrupt desires

ignite within my breast. I rest within the entropic embrace

of my Dark Queen. Sweet pain burns my through my  viens,

my journey complete. Never to know peace again.

Once more on the path of life we ride to the edge of eternity, releasing, only to fall together again, left to gather the shards of our pain.

Lying in the shadow of la petit mort. The momentarliy breached walls that seperate us rising again, the afterimage fading. 

Smiling, we repeat platitudes, lies we tell to stave off the terror filled moments alone, until we again try to breach the wall, and ride to the edge of eternity.

You be well too!
Yes, life is always getting in the way.
