Purest of Sin

Purest of Sin

A Poem by SherilAmilia

This poem is following the theme of unrequited and forbidden love. Written in the point of view of a girl in love. Inspired by a poem I came across recently. This is my take on it.

I love her with the seasons, with the winds,
As the stars worship, as anemones
Shudder in secret for the sun, as bees
Buzz round an open flower: to kiss
then part within the hour, and leave
behind a heart to grow beyond her age.

There's no one else I hunger for, nor touch
That makes me feel I must take off my skin.
If it so pains to be so in love, and cause
God's creatures to be wrenched at sea - 
Then how it must hurt to live without pain...
Truly, I am Incapable of living 
without a heart that's worth my keeping.

Willingly I'll take Love's briery crown
To proudly bear the humiliation of Peace and Sincerity
For I am throughly devoured by my love for she 
Who possess my heart - 
What tearful longings for the purest of sin - 

My angel, My all

And if she should die, if I were left at large
On earth without her - I, on earth, the same
Quick mortal with a thousand cries, her spell
She fears would break. And I confront the charge
as sorrowing, and as careless of my fame
As Christ intact before the infidel.

Very beautiful....... I do agree with That Girl that the last stanza doesn't follow the theme as much.

Nice Job

I like it. Sort of reminds me of something I wrote a while back. I don't think the last stanza follows the theme as much. It isn't as soft and romantic as the rest of the poem, in my opinion.
