Guiltless Confession - Poem by Odey Patricks
I never meant to Love
But bring your heart to Love
I ever meant to hurt
Your fragile heart that loved.
I never lied not once
How oft you made my Heart sing
How oft you made my Head reel
From thoughts of the joy you bore.
Twas mean Nature out of hurt
To bring your Heart to love
to paint pictures swift and fair
Make you my heartbreak's Heiress.
For my bitter heart once sore
bruised and badly burned
sweet vengeance solely sought
Till twas caught in the web of your love.
I meant once entrapped in your allure
To stick to this love and not
With vengeful thoughts consort.
I meant my treachery to report
at the office of your Heart
knees down in deep Remorse
to ask forgiveness at your heart's Alter.
I never meant for you to lose
your faith in love and Curse
For whatever my words are Worth
To not Love is to mightily lose!
But Ego ever swift
Rescued me from my Guilt
and shewn to me the Filth
in Love, and Trust even.
