A Lover's Lament

A Lover's Lament

A Poem by Paladin4life
"

This is just something I wanted to get off my chest. I wrote this very swiftly at work and did not have spell check.

"

Alas I could have loved you and did upon a time

But you chose another and did commit fatal crime

We were one it seemed entranced in love's sweet bliss

How I longed each day to receive your impassioned kiss

Now I know a terrible truth I must force myself to face

A truth that brings to me my greatest disgrace

It is true that I loved you with every fiber of my being

My heart belonged to you I left it to your keeping

But your heart was never amongst my posessions

At best it seems that you gave me fleeting affections

I was yours for a season but you were never mine

A new day has dawned to you I no longer pine

For God took me up He mended the wound of my soul

He knew you had to be removed to make me fully whole

The love i thought we had had turned to poison instead

If not for this amputation by now my spirit would be dead  

True Love has not found me but I still patiently wait

Each day I remain hopeful and search for my soul's mate

This is a great vent, but not quite a lover's lament, it has more of a Survivor's outlook,
instead of sadness it's with some regret but triumph at the healing.
Love is a trip-up, if not found truly in the heart of the right love.
Great write, poesy is a good medium for you,
though this was hurried, the words flow well enough, great job!~P
