We Love Differently
This lonely, private, hell,
Such oppressive heat;
Heart an empty, winter well,
Constricted, it will not beat.
Asked for my heart, she wanted it alone,
Committed, I sealed it with a kiss;
But, now it is separate from her own,
While she seeks her other bliss.
Said she, "no other love like this before",
How, "her other half I did fill";
Then why let strangers behind that private door,
Would it be ever so ... until ...
Then we talked, agreed, I stayed;
Your love, promised yet again,
Cold promise made, you strayed;
Insecurities filled? A stranger now a friend?
Our time together, oh so sweet,
Then the only one you loved was me;
In my absence how your heart does beat,
Then I'm gone, and with another, content you'll be.
A first attempt, may well be my last. Critcisms are still welcome.
