Lament - Poem by William King

Giant lightning flashes bear
Upon wing and over air
Causing all who watch to care
Yet, Weakened by your light embrace
While starry skies alight your face,
Bewilder eyes with subtle grace
That swings along with greatest joy
As if on battlements of troy
So certain of ones victory
So certain you would come to see
That which i can see in me
A love that blooms a mystery
Unbeknownst to mortal eye
But you may find it if you try
To peel away my sorrows kept
All the times I might have wept
But held it in for fear of shame
That which would declaim my name
And so you see my lot is thrown
To rancor and as yet bemoan
With no one to accompany me
Through long years of misery
The flame burns true at morning dew
As I keep my love for you
Will always stay beneath my skin
Excel in moments kept within.
