Do not ask of me, my love!

Do not ask of me, my love!

A Poem by Darkblushedink

Do not ask of me, my love,
that love i once had for you,.
There was a time when
Life was bright and young and blooming,
And you sorrow was much more than 
any other pain
Your beauty gave the spring everlasting youth 
Your eyes, yes your eyes were everything
All else was vain
While you were mine i thought, the world was mine,
Though now i know that it was not reality,
that's the way i imagined it to be,
For there are other sorrows in the world than love,
And other pleasures too
Woven in silk, and satin, and brocade
Those dark and brutal curses of countless centuries,
Bodies bathed in blood, smeared with dust,
Sold from market place to market place,
Bodies risen from the cauldron of disease,
Pus dripping from their festering soars-
my eyes must also turn to these.
Your beautiful still my love 
But i am helpless too
For there are other sorrows in the world than love,
and other pleasures too.
Do not ask of me, my love,
The love i once had for you!
