Bequest - Poem by dave sherratt

Radiant lady of my sacred dreams
Thou has tied my life in ochre dreams
Your love I hold in a passionate grip
Had I not found your companionship

Removed this dagger, cold steel sharp
That would slit the strings of a hurting heart
For all of your love and warmth delight
I rise from the sheer pain tonight

Reluctant love, chatoyant aerole
Bring together our trusting souls
Body and mind, Quest and plight
Undying love is thine tonight.

    An interesting read, that drew my attention and held it, a bit of mystery too it, the threads of a painful love story. (Report)Reply
