DARK IN LOVE

'Twas her erotic branch,
And soft seductive 
leaves,
That caused my veins to 
bleed and branch,
Outside of cotton 
sleeves

'Twas I in love with lust?
Or lust in love with me?
It was her heart I could 
not trust,
Yet her...I would marry

Not use to love I cried,
A river of a well,
While sacrificing all my 
pride,
To hear the harps of 
hell

'Twas her erotic branch,
And soft seductive 
leaves,
That caused my veins to 
bleed and branch,
Outside of cotton 
sleeves

    When something is this good I need to visit it more than once. Just love 1st and last verses; kind of haunts my mind with those images.

    Such sweet imagery Johnny, I can't tell you how much this type of rhyme delights my imagination. I'd love to have a book with this kind of poetry! Hugs, Lizie

    I enjoyed reading your poetry this morning Johnny. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am going to see if I can write something for a couple contests this weekend. Hope you find the inspiration to do the same. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Love, Carol

    I really like your poem, but cotton is spelled with an "o", not an "e". Happy Holidays! hugs, catie :)
