To Faithful Joseph - Poem by Jessel Jane Tevar Toring

If I were Potiphar's wife,
would you run away from me;
would you rather turn your back
and leave me miserably?

If I were far more beautiful than her,
can you look away from me;
can you push away my willing arms
from holding you endlessly?

If I in fate and life have failed,
If marrying him was wrong -
have found you and love along,
would you forsake me all alone?

If it's only you I dream of,
and heavens brought you to me...
Is it too much to ask of you
to run away with me?

    The theme is alien to many.But the lines have a universal charm with good expression and apt diction.
    Experience is your teacher and in the next phase of life it will rinse the ones around you

    ...how i wish i was sold into slavery by my brothers to Potiphar as a household slave...
    as a text message reads, a woman's heart should be hidden in God, that a man must seek God to find her.
    ...you don't need to ask him though...he will seek for your heart... :)
    ...10 for this! ..
