Lily in the thorns
I am torn I am torn
between two kinds of courage
amid all kinds of scorn
How may I approach you
when my heart lies open bare?
In your eyes I saw forever
you were unaware
of who I really was...
if I was even real.
You’re not one to play these games
so I should not conceal...
or hide behind these lines
which go out from my heart
and take the place of bravery
perhaps even the start
of something really beautiful...
something pure and true.
Yet the fantasy that these words provide
keep me away from you
So now you’ve said be brave
What have I to lose?
How about my confidence?
my heart remains still bruised
But I’d go through a thousand broken hearts for just a chance
to hold you in my arms for one more minute when we dance.

Excellent!!! There's nothing I like more than a well written pice of verse and this indeed classifies as that. Not only does it flow as smooth as water, but the subject matter is great. Wonderful poem, I enjoyed every last word

Samson, honestly at first when I looked at the title, I thought it was a religious poem, but as I read it, I could not stop until I finished!

It is very Romantic, Beautiful, Just beautiful!

PS. If it was about Jesus, well that would have been fine also!

Samson - this is marvellous work.
I agree with Hoot - it flows like water.
And welcome to Passions!
