I have a friend who means to me
More than I can say,
And often times, this friend and I
With words, we choose to play.

Alas, I fear some damage here
Upon her heart I pressed
From traded words thrown out in play
My heart it seems transgressed.

The pain I felt was more acute
Than swords within my soul
That I within could conger up
And this unholy motive hold.

How do I tell this friend of mine
Who's virtue I hold dear,
What joy she brings to those around
Whenever she is near.

For me, I wear a scarlet letter
Begotten long ago,
To bury passions deep within
And seldom let them show.

INclan, excellent piece of writing here, and the theme is one that has been on my mind of late...the impact and importance of words between two hearts.

Thank you, Claire, for you kind comments. The "intended" also read this poem, as I had hoped. This was indeed poetry with a purpose beyond the beauty of poetry itself.

Terrific INclan, enjoyed the read!
