Who Shares Your Heart By None? - Poem by Mark Heathcote
Love and lovers
are endlessly at war
their battling is endless…
With carefully placed, trenches.
And landmines to maim!
or else calling for an end a truce
a cease-fire or total…
out; and out surrender.
'It says love be my prisoner
my cage and my pastor…
love take this here gruel—
and show no' disobedience.
To your lovers rule of thumb,
add your own virtuous love,
virtue needs valour
to pump its blood…
but discretion is the better part of valour
shown in equal force by one
who shares your heart bar none?
