cling

To cleave to cling
To hold to one thing
To follow to stay
Not go astray

To have to hold 
To do what is told
To stick to one thing
Not just wear a ring

To feed and pray
To see everyday
To live in faith
Not remember mistakes

To love to cherish
Till one should perish
To seek to find
In next life time

    @John 'The Situation' Loving III -- How did I get such a 'Loving' surname wrong below? Maybe it was subconscious -- the absence of your good, 'Loving' ways. John 'The Situation Hating III would be a more apt name for you anyway. How long did you figure I would turn the other cheek before I started retaliating against you? Too bad some of the other poets that you prayed upon like a serial-rapist have since left this site. How long have you been a bully for now? How many years has it been? Long enough for many soupers, that's for sure....

    @John 'The Situation' Irving III' -- As I have already mentioned to you, I obviously had you blocked, but you continue to slither onto the replies of comments left on my poems. If someone blocks me, I respect their human right and freedom to do so. I do not infringe upon their human rights by forcing myself onto their poems via the reply section of other people's comments. YOU JUST WON'T STOP DOING IT, SO HERE I AM. As much as you see yourself as being morally superior, you are delusional, for your morals aren't saintly at all. Far from it.

    The contrast with opposites creates a mesmerizing work of art with so few words. Again, your artistic touch touches me deeply. Love Lizzie

    "mistakes" unless you meant it poetically as "miss-takes" as in filmmaking. decent poem though. tiny bit cliche. read worse
