I wanted to write a lovely
love poem and this came out,
not sure if it needs another stanza???


An Unromantic Love Poem

Perverting, twisting, warping
delusions of grandeur invades
just to listen to your talking
the intellect brain, silently, fades,

Yet such a delicious, gentle lover
you are, when you're not acting like a king
but when you don't listen to your other
such a low of sadness you bring,

One can't help, but to you be drawn
it's a meeting tinged with dread,
once in, a heart becomes torn,
bleeding, abused, it's caught in your web,

Sensual words fall from your tongue
convincing stars that night is day,
in a feathered chain one can not run,
yet the heart surrenders in a willing way.

I believe the poem is just as it should be ending with the last stanza. You have used vivid imagery to pull the reader into the poem's/ writer's emotions. Kathy

A twisted, mind"bending" write!
But in a good way..It cought me..
Love can do so much to us,
and we let it do it to us..

Bookmarked ;o)
