A Poem by Paladin4life

My usual genre unrequited love, lamenting and hope for the future.

It's been a long time

Perhaps too long
Maybe not long enough

I guess it depends who you are
My heart says it has been too long

My formers say not long enough
My heart lies broken in the shadows

Like an old worn out chair
In the corner of the room

Torn by malicious lovers
Each took their sadistic turn

With great pleasure they caused my pain
Delightful was my suffering

'Twas a sweet summer wine
I want to love I want to live

Yet the malicious sirens
Their harm have done

When I look at another
I fear to offer too much

I say the right things
I flirt and offer a line or too

But my heart will not approach them
Even though I want to love

I fear the pain of a third harpy's talon
embedded in my soul

I don't know if I could recover again
My love is trapped in a broken heart

Ripped and bled out by a siren's sharp tongue
You say I embelish but it is not so

These words are the painful truth
I have offered myself on the altar of true love

Only to find that I awoke in the temple of hate
How I long for true love

I long for simpler days
I long to have my poor heart restored and talon free

My lady, True Lady, My heart's desire
Your Shining Knight has been grieviously wounded

He can't come to your aid
Come to me my love oh come to me

Save me from the she devils who my heart have broken
Vicious past holds me in respite

Free your knight, free my love
I can't offer myself whole heartedly

For I am too broken
But if you have the time to mend my wound

I will your subject forever be.
