His vow to me

I carried your heir for thirty six weeks
 my womb is scarred evidence of my love for thee.

Some where here in these past years
 I tripped, but my heart thine hands did snare.

No longer of mine but that of thou
 my breath pumps by strength in thine prayer.

 Here, today, thou long ago I heard you swear
our souls allready weld in unity before the Trinity

on the eve of mine Worlds Conception
 and on the birth of our young Love's Creation

here, today, the heavens shall hear thou declare
 thine love, tenderness and guardianship of me.

An oath of loyalty, strength and honor
 to serve and protect my quivering cup of life.

That once my flower you pluck, I will be your divine
 liquer of life, exhaling back becoming mine breath of life.

And here, the moment, I wait in suspense
      for your vow and promise...

"F--- it" 
               Excuse me?   "F--- it?"
and here, this moment I am again deflowered.

The sip of nectar from your virginal bride
is now the reckless shot glass that wrecked your life.

In scores of of seventy years, I wonder still
      was it your choice or mine?

    Hi Tara, I still like the poem, but Poetry Soup prohibits the use of profanity. If they see the poem, it could get you in trouble. I would suggest you change the wording in that one area, other than that it is a very moving poem. Best wishes, Carolyn

    Tara, this poem has a witty ending with a spiritually uplifting message. Thank you for sharing it. The Soup Convention was just a dream. We've never had a convention because our members are scattered worldwide. Love, Carolyn
