LOVE AND DEATH

That  great feeling for you,
Seemed strange to hold'
Heart gripped with love'
Love that hurts like death'
Though death induces sorrow'
Your love gave me grief'
Grief so hard to fade'
Grief so hard to bear'
Love torn my heart away'
Torn away in shreds'
And still you careless'
Caressed by your second match'
Is death upon me?
Do you really care
Yes I cared for you
And that care to die refusing'
May who still know
The graves in my heart..
You the first to visit?
The first to be buried....
Long forgotten not,
Call my name and will listen'
Funny when you are gone,
The heart loves you more,
Is love and death related?

    Hello, Thank you for a warm welcome. I will be happy to join your contest. I am going to contribute to poetry with all my heart. The thing is I came to know my talent when I was too young back in primary school,writing and acting is all I have though I lack a platform to enable me exploit my talents. Anyway thanks in advance...hope to hear from you soon.
