So said a Dove

So said a Dove

A Poem by Jason Knight
"

And if death shall separate us, let it take me too. For it my heart will break, I know not what to do. I love you, dear Dove.

"

I’m broken

There were two paths, but neither was chosen,

I was too weak and I stayed in between the road,

Now I’m weeping, I’m broken, and I’m cold,

If I were hated, why would I be loved?

If I can’t fly, why call me a dove?

I never knew what is was to be cherished,

My lover left me, and now here I perish.

I am just a girl, I should’ve known well.

Now I hate my lover and hope he burns in hell.

~~~ 

My lover, I left alone in the fork road,

Now I lay here in pain and I die in this cold,

My legs are broken,

This path I had chosen,

Now I shall die without seeing yet again her face,

I shall die in sorrow, my cover shall be disgrace.

The victim of a battle I was injured in her defense,

To defend my lover, this was the expense.

I was just a boy, who found his heart.

Now I die without her, and it’s tearing me apart.

~~~ 

This pain, it is not mine, but I feel the pain,

Is it my lover or am I going insane?

Could it be that my lover came,

That in the road his pain was set aflame?

I run and run and never look back,

Was my lover the victim of a brute attack?

A body I see in the distance,

And it all crumbles, no longer existence.

~~~ 

I lay here in sorrow and perhaps delirious,

For I see my lover’s face wrapped in the imperious,

I strive to speak but my lips are shattered with blood,

My tears rip apart; my eyes begin to flood,

She says: “It was my entire fault, how could I be so stupid?”

“This was the expense of our love, and we shall blame it on cupid!”

I smile and shake my head,

For I love her, and wouldn’t want anything more instead.

~~~ 

My lover is in pain and sorrow,

He will not stay today, He shall never see tomorrow,

How could I blame my love for leaving me alone?

For defending my soul, he has shattered every bone.

I weep and I cry,

I shatter and I die.

His words are only to be compared with the ethereal,

His voice so demanding, his voice so imperial,

“You are the one I will always cherish in love”

“But now I must depart and you should move on, my beautiful dove”

I liked this a lot especially "I was just a boy, who found his heart.
Now I die without her, and it’s tearing me apart." but I found a few grammar issues too :/ try rereading it, and don't force the rhymes. Still really good work though :)

Wow, this was an intense poem! I liked how every word you wrote held meaning, depth, and emotion, and how it all seemed to come together. Your imagery was so detailed, and so vivid, and as the reader, I really felt like I was transported straight into the heart of your story. This was a beautifully tragic, fantastically crafted piece. Nice work,
