Hey everyone!!!!
I got a wierd idea... How about a chain poem?
I will post here as a reply the first 4 lines, and if you want you can add to it!!

Rules:

1. only 4 lines per reply
2. you may enter more then once, but you may not   reply twice in a row. In other words there has to be a reply of another poet in between...
3. Keep with the theme please...

Hope you will join me in this crazy sounding effort for a challenge!

A CHAIN of PAIN and LOVE

Locked I am within
A chain made of sorrow
But my key is made of love
To break free from my chain


Darkness upholds Light as much as Holiness downs the Evil within...

I have but one love to free love's captive
For mine heart yearns after thine heart only...
How do I swoon thine love in battle's midst?
How do I forge thus key to prison's door?

Little do I know how to break through the heartless shackles,
Clueless I am and completely pained in sad demystified awe,
Just last time we met, we shared pleasant moments in chuckles,
Tonight I am lost, floating in memories of your promised love.

The hearthless shackles are lies
Seducing lonely moments
To your arms enlaced in memories
Calling truth to unlock the fantasy

Let then the ultimate truth by itself be unravelled,
May the mystery behind the painful silence disappear,
May sad roads on this night that my heart travelled,
Be replaced by your pleasant aura, may love reappear.

I rebuke thou tempestuous viper!
A knight's chivalry breaks thine dragon's head...
I destroy thine evil lies, Oh Lucifer!
And return mine Love's undying favor.

My quest is unending
To find my key of love
To open this treacherous chain
And be free to love again


Darkness upholds Light as much as Holiness downs the Evil within...

Unshackle me from these prisoned walls,
Bring out the love laying deep inside,
Rid me off the pain from my soul's halls,
May, in these chambers, love again reside.

Thou art mine dragon slayer, most Lovely,  
In quest of mine hallucinatory key...
I know thine love shalt return from battle's cry--
I know thine love shalt open mine bosom's door--

Love unfettered is my goal
But for now this pain rages,
Requite my love, find the key
Be the one whom my pain assuages!

It sounds so great,
This mission to find love divine.
But the key is old,
The lock rusted shut.

At mine knight's conquest shalt bygones pass
As shalt mine drudgery's garments unfurl...
Alas, unshackled chains fall to vibrant streets!
Alas, emotions race naked to victory's arms!

Finally I found my key
I unlock my chain
Yet sadness fills me
You are not there

I told you so it was just fantasy
Love only exists in poetry
In real life only pain survives
A dream passing through our lives

Mine victory stolen!  Mine knight captive!
Seduced by thou evil wench's sorcery...
To whom shalt I controvert love's defeat?
Shalt I plunge mineself in arms of darkness?

You shall not give up so easy
But in the arms of the One
That gives peace that surpasseth all
Understanding you can dance your darkness away

Then take away this darkness
residing deep inside this soul,
Throw upon this evil darkness,
Let love through the soul's hole.

Why upon my noble head
The scars of darkness burn?
One must learn to love ones self
Before true loves returned

i seem to be late of the party

And whilst I await loves bright return
each day seems to grow darker evermore
I'm fearful that the light I yearn
Will blind night eyes to my love of yore

Deep into love's mirror I gaze
Only to to see a skull in grey,
Help shatter this glass of craze
Erase the painful hurt, I pray.

With the pain inside
All in all it seems
That perhaps love
Exists not only in dreams


Darkness upholds Light as much as Holiness downs the Evil within...

Perhaps!  There is hope
For love to come for some
But for others love is a stranger
Waiting to be invited

So who is willing to love me?
Who is willing to take care of me?
Who is willing to touch me?
Who is willing to marry me?
