The Night of no Knight

In pain, I called out to you
The tears streaming down my face
My broken heart in my hand
My whole world a sad disgrace

A true damsel in distress
I was waiting to be free
From the demons of my night
That were there torturing me

I thought you full of mercy
I could see it in your eyes
So I sent out the signal
To prevent a sad demise

You dazzled with your armor
I thought you splendid and grand
With chivalrous demeanor
Sought salvation from your hand

I kept waiting for the sound
Of gallant knight’s mighty steed
I fought to hold on to life
My heart continued to bleed

There, my knight must be coming
He will sweep me off my feet
He will kiss away my wounds
Take me to his castle retreat

I waited; the moon grew pale
I felt dizzy and grew faint
So, I whispered my last prayer
To change from sinner to saint

As I crumbled to the ground
And the world grew dim to sight
I cursed the most tragic end
Of this, my night of no Knight.

    Awwwww those knights can really disappoint can't they Eileen, how often do we see those in shining armour turning out to be the dullest let downs. Read 'The Highwayman', by Alfred Noyes, for true love, romance and tears. Take care, Richard

    Richard...you are so so right! :) You most always are, you know. First I heard of the Highwayman was when I watched Anne of Green Gables. I didn't read the poem though till now. WOW WOW WOW WOW! Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Has all the things that I love! You are so thoughtful, Richard. Thank you!
