Lover of Lovers


Incapacitated lover,
You say you want me
But not as a lover
I am nothing more
Than a lover, lover
You bury me
Under your covers
Like I am your lover
Poisoned by your love
I am a blind lover
A naive lover
A lover of lovers
You hit me
Like I am more
Than just a lover
Lover, hidden
Like a lover forgotten
I felt love
But I am a bound lover,
That is to be second
To your very first lover
A lover, angrier
Than this lover
A lover, rougher
Than this gentle lover
He is in you
But only as a lover
Sometimes I think
I am more than a lover
Less than your love
But more than your lover
And when I'm with you
You say I feel
Like a good lover
I am no lover
Less than a good lover
You think I love her
But I'm your lover
She says she loves me
But few ever love
The lovers of lovers

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
