Into The Trap

Well I've been meaning to write poems about Skulduggery Pleasant characters ever since I joined the blog. But I've always been a bit scared on how they'll turn out. This is the first one that I found to be satisfactory. I'm still nervous about actually posting it. Not sure if it portrays her correctly. Constructive criticism is most definately wanted.

Enjoy!


Into the Trap

The epitome of elegance
Iridescence incarnate
Magniloquent, delightful
The most beautiful woman in the world
Exquisite and delicate
Wondrous and breathtaking
She is paragon of perfection
Splendour unfurled

Purveyor of secrets of knowledge and power
Hoarder of artefacts, collector of tomes
Eyes of palest blue, hair blacker than a raven’s wing
Loquacious and sesquipedalian
Amorous, breathtaking
A libraryrinth is the heart of her homes

Adored by all who see her
Loved by each soul
She fills them with passion
They’re hers to control
She takes what she wants from them
For all they desire
Is to please China Sorrows
It’s what they aspire

Calm and collected
Never perturbed
How can one who knows everything
Ever be disturbed?

Never to be trusted
Don’t tell her your name
For all that she does
Is for her own gain

Neutral as always
Not one to act
No friends to fail
No lives to impact

Her magic is symbols
They’re all that she needs
From boiling a kettle
 Heals her when she bleeds

Ruthless and heartless
She’ll do what she must
To ensure her own safety
Through violence or lust

Her secrets her own
Her intents unknown
Yet to trust the untrustworthy
Is inevitably prone

Led the Diablerie
Worshiped cruel gods
Abandoned her beliefs
Against all the odds

Bliss was her brother
And though he is dead
China tried to kill him
Gods succeeded instead

For her deadliest secret
Her one single fear
The sentence that never
Should Skulduggery hear

“China Sorrows, China Sorrows
She’s the one
Nefarian Serpine killed Skulduggery Pleasant
But China Sorrows led his family
Into the trap”
