in the practice of love

Written by: Stephen Petluk gentle fury

.
My passions burned so very bright
as I practiced love away from light
tasting sweet  charms of many girls
in endless  joy, and denials fright.

as I practiced love away from light
I hardly cared in reckless youth
but now I know you were my truth

My passion burned on words not spoken
lost in  your pretty heart so broken
 my shallow gestures but a token

I knew your name but not your passion
 now I look for you in desperate fashion
as i practice love away from your light.
