Hemlock Valentine

The image I imagined,
Alas! It has not passed. 
For I am afire with carnal desire, 
unquenched and dying fast! 
My sweetest bane, I shan't complain- 
you are my Love, my Death, my Pain! 
Through my heart, a stake! Oh, do indicate 
the grave where Love was lain.

    A very powerful write dear one, love can be so piercing, you evoke the emotion and give rise to the passions that burn within, I once was given Hemlock, and I planted it in my garden, a rather lovely plant, I might add, but rather deadly if taken by dose, thank you for sharing, this rather unique poem about Valentine, luv and hugs, always, Vie xxx
