Modern Faust Prose Part 1

Postby Machlath » Tue Nov 11, 2008 4:26 am

The one who his purpose can not see
Will wander and wonder if he has to be
Although all he does he thinks he must
But we do know he knows no trust
No love, no care, no hate, no fear
He lives in pain and anger feels
Can us he vanquish, if we might
Then turn he turns to an all might
While we stumble, while we tremble
He turns to a monster, terrible
Likewise, we need not to lose control
And let him, make him to hell roll
When giving him the way to roll
We need to shut the little holes
So he might not roll back and forth
And so, make damage to the world in whole
So what he is and what he thinks
We do not know, indeed
But though we kill and though we hurt
He grows worse, he IS the lord.
So ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
We DO return, but he does not.

Intriguing piece Machlath.

Interesting correlation with Faust and the devil, surely you mean Mephistopheles, Faust was but a man, whose compact was with the devil, and Mephistopheles was one of his minions.

Also, why is it called prose, when it's verse?

Are there further parts to come?

I'd be interested to read them.

Uhhm. yeah I know perfectly fine the characters since I have read the play by Goethe about it 3 times. I don't need an encyclopedia moment there. The poem is based on feelings NOT on facts, because this is what poetry is about. And if you would want to notice, the word prose is with a capitalized letter thus it is part of the poem name, not an indicator of the structure which again-I know perfectly fine that it's a free verse, I think I know poem structures, so thanks for THAT encyclopedia moment, and why the hell would I name it part 1 when there is no second part to it
Jeez...

There was no need to come back like that, I wasn't trying to be clever with you, my questions were genuine ones, I wasn't trying to attack you like you've just done, by belittling me.

Good day.
