Love?

Love?

A Poem by Ethale Captor
"

Perhaps I am falling in...?

"

Bloodstained tears

Heartfelt cries

Can’t we love

Instead of lie?

Stick together

To survive

Live to love

Rather than die?

I love you

And that’s no lie

If you were hurt

I would cry

Hold you close

And close my eyes

Sing you a

Healing lullaby

Hope you know

I will defy

Even death

So you have light

In the darkness

Hear my plight

I would die

To save your life

I’d gladly give

My blood stained tears

And heartfelt cries

To show I love you

More than life

I’d take your pain

And endure your strife

If you look once

Into my eyes

You’ll see I’m rid

Of my despise

And when I look

Into your eyes

All I see

Is my love’s life

I wish I had

With you one night

So you could hold me

From my fright

Cast away my nightmares

And be my light

Help me sleep

And finally feel right

About being loved

Is this what it’s like?

Banish bloodstained tears

No more heartfelt cries

When I’m with you

All is right

Thank you.
Oh my gosh. This is an amazing poem! I love the almost chantlike rhythm that you keep so easily. Also, the slight repetition of the words "bloodstained tears" also helps with that. This is... Wow. Great job!

9 Years Ago

it was truly magnificent.
Very nice. A bit difficult to read, as it's not separated into stanzas
