Thoughts from Guinievere

I'm a figment of a
yet i'm woman
and strong

I embody all Queenly
naturally act like
Jill or John

What was the mad
Welsh Monks
idea to make me
like a pedestal?

Just so I could
fall from ancient
have punishment
pushed in my face

'The Great Arturus'!
my Romano-Brit
I toy with you
you know I do

My lascivious
well- I love him
wouldn't you?

Malory made
me a Goth
all swooning

I was convincing
to silly Victorian
but still
Geoffrey mad monk
from Monmouth
made me behave

A thousand lonely
years to sit
and wait
for liberation
A high price indeed
to fit
a puzzle
to piece together

Editing stage: 


Stories to bind a British consciousness.....all lies of course....but convincing historical context makes them fun to read!

interesting and informative much enjoyed

Can you say "wry"? How about "wicked"?
You grow on me more and more.
This is no rough draft, you are finished.

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley

Thank you Mr Snow. I enjoy all stories to do with Camelot, King Arthur. The fact it's all the imaginings of a lonely welsh monk, makes it more poignant. I will return to this theme in the personae of various characters...their thoughts as I'd imagine them to behave...Keep me occupied for a bit, eh?

This piece is a beaut to read and the short lines carried the picture so well, nothing wasted and so well written.
Love the stories of Arthur Pen-dragon, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

I'm crafting my style. It's freeform, but i'm mindful to place emphasis on key words for impact. I like a loose half rhyme in my work to keep the momentum. Trying to craft that better too. Thanks for your feedback.
