Listen to your Heart

A history
A broken promise
Nothing would go amiss
Nothing would shake the two.
Nothing would make the pair untrue
Until beckoning sadness of rupture of time,
When nature would render end to beauty sublime.

No king,
No earthly Queen;
Nothing would deem unclean
Such linen laundered in heaven.
Never word, deed, no feeling even
Would come between two hearts in love
With no idea that earthly pride could shove.

Sarcastic claps
Were the beginning
Doom was slowly winning,
Someone listened to the wind
Containing a galore of words unkind.
Doubt took over, and their heart trembled
And the virtues that kept two together disassembled.

Don't jaunt
Forsaking your heart,
Allowing whispers to impart.
Imperfect, incomplete they may be,
Your presence, affection is untold key
Theirs to you will come but unprecedented
Your world will grow and with beauty acquainted.
