Self explanitary


Caring not of love now gone
My rescued heart and I move on
No velvet chains of love shall ere bind me
A thousand ladies I have led
To my unmade and crumpled bed
Yet still of loves need I can n'er be free

Other men proclaim their fame
Of conquests in that field of shame
In hope perhaps their ego to enhance
I know of love and of its loss
For I have paid in full the cost
And yet I seem to need just one more dance

I often feel blessed with a curse
That my predation I should nurse
My heart devoid of guilt of lovers cry's
I meet another, fall in love
In amours dance of push and shove
Lost in an erotic tangled web of lies

I feel sometimes a true love found
My feet at last on solid ground
My glasses tinted rose, a different hue
Intentions never battles win
With heart and soul immersed in sin
As I embrace true love with thoughts untrue

I envy those with golden band
Their love secure as hand in hand
They wend their way towards true loves destiny
Whilst I with stealth and fleet of foot
Scale the portcullis ere it shut
For fear in truth no love could cherish me.

I enjoyed this very much, it must be the romantic in me, i could say more but angela seems to have said it for me, keep it up.

chasingtheday The PoetBay support member heart!
love, it twists us i its palm and we scream oursleves blind.

loves need - love's need
lovers cry's - lovers' cries
armours dance - armour's dance

(an easy way to remember to add the ' is think does the second word belong to the first as in love's need, the need of love)

Intentions never battles win - this seems strange when reading maybe putting in some pause -
intentions never battle and win.

loves destiny - love's destiny
