A Man's Tale

A man’s tale 

With mind control there he was,
A man for sale…
Hearing the vocal sound from this wordsmith, 
A man in his own tale…
Currently, he was sitting and calling upon the earth.
Prior rumors about his love for the Queen.
Yet to come would be a bard, singing for Her Majesty-

A fool wrapped in a cowardly way.
Flowers and scars sat on his floor.
A torn heart, making its way out the door.
He caresses the image of her in his mind.
This man, this bard, sang a song for the blind.

Releasing a soft note, she turns towards the sun.
Forgetting the ferocious rage of the king.
The man kneels with the light flashing in his face.
He drinks with his eyes, one moment of glee.
His headlands under the moon's winter space.

Never again, will he spend his days thinking.
Never again-
 will he feel the shivers when calling upon the earth and her beauty. 
Never will he know, he was the tune that eased her thirst.

A man’s tale always ends under a woman’s spell.

    I really enjoyed this medieval-styled love tale. It wasn't overly romantic like others I've read and it had just the right amount of description to leave the reader curious as to the extent of their love. I'd say the last half of the poem was really something special... drinking with his eyes, one moment of glee... << golden line right there!

    I think my head is somewhere in the moons winter space still, I just don't know where. I enjoyed this sad tale of love. I'm still looking through your poems just picking some random ones right now. I don't think I can comment on all of yours so quickly like you did mine. I want to thank you again for all your kind words.
