Best John Loving Iii Poems

+ Fav Poet


love is so hard to requite
when sin has killed desire
where there was once a desprite need
now the smoke of an extinguished fire
the empire where there was a throne
that sparkled with streets of gold
crumbled into disrepair
a slum of dry rot, mildew and mold
love was an idol truely a god to behold
a million promises to ones self
over and over told
dilusions of grandure 
and hopes that lured the way
a blindness created 
that explained iniquities away
an unselfish giving as love would endure
a life style of living 
with a dream soundly secured
writen in stone this thing so pure 
proteceted by my love so sure
until that day...

    So intense, John. I see you are in a regreful mood with two regret poems posted together. I hope you find the happiness you seek. Maybe you are on that path now?? ( I see you asked Gwen about HER past sins here. Did she ever tell you? hmmmmm)
