To Love In Weakness Or Grow Strong

In those tender hours before the dawn
I cry that I'm his tragic pawn.
He shreds my senses into tatters
then squashes all the hope that matters.

Yet I feel such a magical love
from him like he's sent from above.
My heartstrings play each song for him.
He fills my soul right to the brim.

Now I have made my tough decision.
He'll find me gone when he has risen.
Single and strong is what I'll be.
I grabbed the reins-set myself free!

    I great poem about finding strength to do something you should but don't want to. I like the "P.S." So many people assume our poems are about us. Most of mine are made up situations.

    I really enjoyed reading this awesome write here this morning my friend! I especially liked the key line of the poem, "Single and strong is what I'll be." that line created the final blow to your poem, as 'you' completed your goal! What a fantastic piece, such a grand poem! Great Work!!
