Bull Hawking

before both of us can feel....part 1

I should have been afraid
afraid of loosing you
utopia was a topic
but my trop-ics were too few

I should have been afraid
afraid of loosing you
but I never really owned you
never kept you on my pen

you were only ever there
only in my mind
nothing ever happened
but what happened in my mind

If I could have only kept you
kept you as my friend
I wouldn't be like gold ore
gold you never mined

If our troth had only
lived in truth

    lol..you are right about the spelling of loosing but I misspell words for effect....it is a vocal clue to lengthen the vowel I am offending. in the end I meant if only our troth had lived in truth....troth....being an antiquated word meaning....loyal or pledged faithfulness. Thanks for your comment. (Report) Reply

    Great title and I love the ending... But did you mean truth lived in truth? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
