how can one love two?
is it something I should do?

I want to let you go
not let my true heart show

yet if I cannot walk away
but linger for another day

will it break your heart
for us to stay apart?

for my heart will ne'er be free
and in that lies our misery

my hand held by one
a new life just begun

my heart held by another
the truth I cannot smother

for I am ~duty~ bound
to live on hallowed ground

my fate as such resigned
my warrant has been signed

and if he loves me still
shall he take this bitter pill?

to live apart from our true love
til that day we meet above

can our lives be fulfilled
while lonely tears we spill

living such a grievous lie
a secret til the day we die

how can we stay in mortal sin
a lie without, a lie within

our souls destined to be alone
as payment for our sins atone

I beg you not to give a sigh
all shall be right the day I die

"I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself,
than to be crowded on a velvet cushion."
.....Henry David Thoreau

Izzy, you little devil. You're a natural! Your rhyming poetry is good......however, your free verse is ethereal!
