The Poet And The Golden Quill (Dedicated To Oscar Wilde)

Rating: 4.5

I embraced the ruins of your life
both with my arms and closed eyes;
the perfect poet..the perfect man!
the perfect dreamer..the perfect one!
no one knew better of human affection
except you, the pinnacle of perfection.
to love and to be loved is not a crime,
I stole your heart because you stole mine!
but what charm you had! ..so cynical, divine
like spring and tempest in a sweet entwine.

one can't cry his heart encorseted by thorns

It's great to read poetry about a topic that the poet has an intense interest in. It is reflected in the passionate writing that conveys such intimate familiarity. While the style of this poem doesn't follow an 'older' style of writing, it still has the feel of an older poem...because of the subject I would guess. Well done and thanks for sharing.
