As a reader and author I am a HUGE fan of Sylvain Reynard's series of Gabriel's Inferno books. I do have to say though, I wasn't hot on the last book of the trilogy. The first two however, Gabriel's Inferno and Gabriel's Rapture I absolutely loved, loved, LOVED!
So, I fancied writing a short poem about the first book.
Here it is...
Searching deep in the eyes of a woman,
He sought refuge, help and redemption.
Before him sat his own Beatrice,
Self-loathing there was to be no exemption.
Wrath of the past beheld the man,
Deep remorse and guilt played its part.
Sweet Julianne begged to be entered,
Into tortured Gabriel’s heart.
