Speed - Poem by Kevin East

Express train
Excess pain
Jet plane
When the heart gets taken away
Won and lost in a day
Never would concede
But I knew I'd bleed
A prince without his steed
For one brief hour was freed
Yet mugged and robbed at lightning speed.
The ink still wet
On the page where we met.
Before sunset -
My heart broken like your promise of love
When I was woken by the storm from above
All that I'd ever need
A hungry heart your lips could feed
But time is a thief with its greed
Rose of love was only a weed
Your scent ascends on the wind as I plead
And away
At frightening speed.
