Best John Loving Iii Poems

+ Fav Poet


torture is love at first sight
fighting with feeling you cannot fight
loving a thing because of sight
yet not a word because of fright
torture is seeing a ring on a finger
yet inside feelings still linger
and the art of Gods hand 
takes control and demands 
that your eye's your ear's
your hopes and fears 
focus on that apparation
cupids arrow has landed deep
so deep inside that i could weep
and yet in my heart i know
that this is where sins begin
and devils they strike again and again
so why try win where i would also lose
fight this feeling i cannot use
and keep my feeling to myself
write them here tell no one else
place those troubles on a shelf
let them belong to someone else

    Yes, Satan can lure one away..Sin is beautiful at first for Satan paints a beautiful picture..I hope that I am interperting your poem correctly..I have written a new one more (or not) your style..Your reviews are always uplifting..Sara..Gave myself some wiggle room..

    A fine piece filled with deep emotion my friend. Tis better to love from afar than never to have loved at all. Great job here. God Bless, JB

    just give those feelings to God, John. If it's meant to be in the future, it will happen in his time. Love and hugs, Catie :)
