The Metal Edge

The Metal Edge

I like Haiku poetry and my favorite band is Metallica so I figured as an interesting exercise I would try to write a haiku style poem using titles of their songs, so here goes, the songs are in Bold letters.

The Metal Edge – A Metallica Haiku


Blackened, beaten, bruised

Hit the Lights my inner Fuel

Life is Sad but True


Master of Puppets

Cyanide, as we plummet

One poison cometh


Dyer’s Eve borrows

A Harvester of Sorrow

King Nothing’s pharaoh


Welcome Home closure

Sanitarium’s owner

A No Leaf Clover


Escape the construct.

Hardwired to self-destruct

I’m Frantic and fucked


Human history

is My Friend of Misery

No Remorse to see


We Seek and Destroy

A Breadfan for proper ploy

No Cure to enjoy


Oh, Poor Twisted Me

The Outlaw Torn, will flee,

My World cannot be.


Confusion wants her

Am I savage? To conjure…

Some Kind of Monster?


Do I Dream No More

This Judas Kiss I’ve adorned

Thorns Within my pores


Mama Said don’t peep

Just wait Until it Sleeps

Damage Inc. will reap


To Live is To Die,

The Day That Never Comes by

The God That Failed sighs


The Struggle Within

The Hero of the Day sins

Of Wolf and Man wins


The Four Horsemen ride

Even Sweet Amber abides

Their Attitudes high


Nothing Else Matters

Through the Never with backers

Borderline swagger


Fade to Black inside

The Unnamed Feeling is pride

St. Anger resides


Dirty Window blight

Halo on Fire burns bright

To Purify night


Then I Disappear

Just a Bullet Away dear,

just Killing Time here


For Whom the Bell Tolls

In this Ecstasy of Gold

Pulling Teeth gets old.


A Moth Into Flame

Don’t Tread On Me reigns

Creeping Death my game.

    Paul you have hit the nail of the head. When I just started playing around with wherever my creativity led me I started to write more, learn more, and feel more confident in my writing. I love what you are doing keep up the good work. Jamie
