Such Words

Such Words

A Poem by Constance-Outspoken

I won't write any more love poems
filled with sap, hope, or raw desire
No longer shall I pen such odes
as former lusts could once inspire
For such words remembered bring
nothing more than emptiness
When the heart's intent's  misplaced
within one inundate with bitterness

I won't pledge allegiance anymore
to any cause other than my own
No further shall I meander into
even the soul it seems I've known
For such words are spoken, impassioned
laden with promise and care
Such words, merely lies and omissions-
alas, the honest heart is something rare

And here you are being honest, I do declare. You are a poet. You use words to express the feelings that others have, but the words are used to not only describe, but to set the reader there: feeling the feelings that may have caused this sad outburst.
A very good poem, with lots to reflect upon for the reader.
This is my nth time reading this poem and I do like it very much.

Rather sad melancholic voice and words here. The honest heart is not rare, just quiet. Somehow I feel this vow is temporary.

Yes.. an honest heart is something rare.. a heart of love even more so.. Your words seem to reflect a painful experience that lingers like snow in shadows.. Sadly beautiful to be true..

Well written, very inspiring, but sad at the same time. I wish you would help critique some of my works. Have a wonderful day.

Keep the words close, Ms; there is fire in loneliness, and we all must do what we all must do. This poem, right here, speaks to that; the Self is worth saving from the shadow of fleeting feelings, for it's just not right until the right one comes. Very powerful, very deep, and very tragic. Well done, exactly as I remember, Constance.

"DTA" Don't trust anyone, an easy concept to grasp but so hard to hold to... these are definite words of a broken heart cause I have pledge them... it seems so much easier to not feel at all but that makes it hard to know if your alive. I understand this emotional outcry but also know you are too passionate person to keep your love to yourself.

"I won't pledge allegiance anymore" is a pledge of allegiance; it's just going the other way...and worth about as much...but, the big thing here is, how nice to see you on the avenue...
