All about Eve

Naked girl waits in the wings,
a mind to leave behind
all these broken things.
Sacred pearl in sea of sins,
to find reprieve of kind;
call these tokens rings.
Fated worlds within world spins,
divine deceived and blind
falls bespoken kings.

oblique and/but tasty!
I find your language precise. Is this about primal sin or about ingenue willing to murder? (or neither)

intriguing words—yours.

Hi matrin - Good classic triple enclosed tercet ABA ABA ABA in a 7-6-5 syllable form - can't remember the technical name but good to see on PC. Excellent! Mitch :-)

It’s a poem regarding aspects of the perceived femininity and character in general of Eve in the biblical sense (sic), e.g. her position as a female regarded as inferior to that of mail.
Does knowledge= sin, and ignorance= innocence, e.g. does the Christian ideal aspire to a controlling ethos whereby ignorance of all things is required except that that is instructed.

nice meter, not that i would know, but it's feels good.
I like the rhymes, you seem to put them out effortlessly.

i'm not sure I'm feeling line 2 with 'mind' though.  seems lax in a way.

i like that your titles have ceased in caps.

nice work!
