The Gray Prince of Romance

I set my foot on the saddle of heart
But all were shaded, blurred, and scratched meaningless
I heard a whisper and tempted
Who was wandering within the fog?

This world seemed to be collapse ...
Or was it hiding?
Would it be stated in the relevant of logic and a conscience?

The heart says yes
The cavity of mind says no

A contradiction which fails to take the truth as the end of a fact

Lips say yes
Eyes say no

Will you be able to break through the hypocrisy which was anesthetized in it?

This must be a dream ...
And I hoped it would be ended as a dream ...
A dream which described about a big whirl
An endlessly linear which revolved upon a life

Which I hoped I would never be involved 

But it was too late ...
I am here, standing as the pivot of a dilemma ...
For a moment I stood on my silence
Try to analyze the situations ...

For a sudden I speak to an empty room
What are you searching for?
Is it a black or white instead?
And the breeze of wisdom back whispered

"You're looking for an obsolete"

"You're looking for the gray prince of romance"

    Thanks for the insight, it adds to the meaning. With your permission I may write a poem about a gray Prince. I might have fun with it. Soup Mail me if it is okay.

    Your poem is very good. There is a lot of good imagery here. Perhaps you can write more about this Gray prince of Romance. I think it would be an interesting direction to take. Who is he, where does he come from, what powers does he possess. Are women powerless to resist him? How may they escape? There are many directions you can go.

    Actually in this story, the gray prince is not telling about the real person, it is just a term of a complicated love which stands above the gray line. The person in this poem lived by trying to scavenge her real love which she found as a fake. So basically she's looking for an absence :) Thank you Richard for your supports in my poems, it is really encouraged me a lot :D - Hug, Yanny
