To avenge life, I died a thousand times
Sanguine lies trembled, As genuine facts emblazoned the sky
I, Rambled about in oblivion
Genuine smile trembled, As sanguine lies blazed high
To avenge death, I lived a thousand lives.

Prompted at NAISAIKU III WEEK and 3WW



  1. Nice poetry, I like the life/death word change on the first and last lines, which gives the piece a much stronger feel, in fact both of these lines read much like an ancient quotation – well played!

  2. Hiya, thanks for taking The NaisaiKu.. Challenge this week, the post is up till the next one next Tuesday, so feel free to post anytime. I always enjoy reading your contribution and I love the word play in this poem and also how you managed to combine the prompted words at Three Word Wednesday – TTW’s a great prompt site to get the creative juices flowing…
