torture

Written by: john loving iii

torture is love at first sight
fighting with feeling you cannot fight
loving a thing because of sight
yet not a word because of fright
torture is seeing a ring on a finger
yet inside feelings still linger
and the art of Gods hand 
takes control and demands 
that your eye's your ear's
your hopes and fears 
focus on that apparation
cupids arrow has landed deep
so deep inside that i could weep
and yet in my heart i know
that this is where sins begin
and devils they strike again and again
so why try win where i would also lose
fight this feeling i cannot use
and keep my feeling to myself
write them here tell no one else
place those troubles on a shelf
let them belong to someone else
