! ! ! -My Love Has Loved You Best~! ! !


I knew what you did to me,
But I didn't know why;
So I labelled It Love,
And I let It lie...

Deep within my soul,
Safely captured and stored till now.
But without me knowing,
It grew stronger than me somehow.

A prisoner outlasting jail,
A slave turned master;
A Thing I can't restrain;
Towards you, moving faster.

As if It smells the blood of Its own kind,
and longing for Its mother there to rest.
It can't see, hear, taste or touch,
But I know my Love has loved you best.

    This is one of the better rhythm and rhyme pieces I have read in my reviews here.
    There is so little to speak of negatively, that I simply choose not to do so. That is because the readers will not notice the difference. A worthy 9.

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
