Rejected Love

I long for passion mixed with comforts sort,
awaiting warm welcome from this delight,
I count with words of romance this effort,
and hope to see a love that shines so bright,
yet war intrudes and I must leave to fight,
my heart is slashed,rebuffed and left to rot,
I toil and try to rinse off dusty thought,
but meet a brick wall lined with hatred`s thrill,
to keep our love in progress this I fought,
for war has filled my hands and head with steel.

Meter Form:Iambic pentameter

    First let me congradulate you on actually understanding the definition of Iambic & pentameter HUZZAH! you know it took me years to understand they were separate things! You can have pentameter of ANY meter not just iambic [I can be a slow learner!] Line 1 is going off meter at the word [TRUE COMfort] if you flipped those 2 words line one would be perfect iambic meter [I know it would affect the end rhyme pattern] SOUP Mail for more hon Light & Love
