SONNET #86 for Tea Time in L.A. #33 - TOPIC: BtVS#20 The Dark Age


Rhetorical verse for Tea Time in L.A. #33- (Talking about Buffy as Shakespeare would have. <g>)
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 29, 2002, 7:10 PM

NOTE: If you watch "The Dark AGE" Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode #20
(Season 2 Episode 8) before reading this sonnet sequence, it will make a heck of a lot more sense.

AN EMPTY SPACE IN THE SOUL - RE: "The Dark Age"
Episode #20 / 2.8 of BtVS


THAT MONSTER THAT WE MARK OURSELVES to call

to brighten darker moments of our lives

when routine duties seemed too dull to haul

up one more mount'nous day . . . It still survives.


What we thought safely buried in the past

untraceable through our new camouflaged

idenity which we're sure has surpassed

the demons who in our dark age had lodged . . .


. . . within our souls -- because we left that space

unoccupied by Heaven's guardian


(On "Buffy" Angel is a special case:

beyond that fluke, real demons don't fight kin.)



I'll cut this sermon short. End with this shout:

If God lives in your heart . . .. All demons out!<./b><./big>
