Chevalier D'Industrie - Poem by Jessel Jane Tevar Toring

One night,
one blissful night...
you crept inside my soul;
you stole my heart and went away
so far
that when the sun shone bright that day,
I cried just to find you
to take my heart

I wept
with bitter tears...
praying where to find you
just to take my heart back again
my heart does not belong to you.
It belongs to the man
who slept with me
that night.

    Hearts are such fickle charges, and so readily pilfered. Good luck with its retrieval. (Report)Reply
