Hangman

wretched hangman covered in sin
you turn from my offer and pay me no heed
the taste of your lips brings royal pain
your cold hand on my chest destroys all that is sane

the dawn of your affection brings morning flight
my will is yours to take where you might
and though I be lost I fear not
my love in your grip will forever unite

    Ralph,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*

    this is morbid and yet it has a redeeming quality in the last two lines. Creative and interesting poem.
