In Dreams, She Saw Love's True Faith As Her Goal

In Dreams, She Saw Love's True Faith As Her Goal

With her heart sad she wept, her tears fell deep
his love was bad, his vows he did not keep,
each new morn, she found her bed held no prize
he had crept off, left her with his dark lies.

She found her wealth, his heart it did so stir
more so than her charms, he was a true cur,
with words he said, my true love, I love you
as she heard, her heart knew it was not true.

Yet love had ate its sweet bread and its fill
she would fall for his charms and his old spill,
her pals would say, tis true, he is no good
kick him to the curb, you know that you should.

In dreams, she saw love's true faith as her goal.
Yet his dark lies, in the end, took their toll.

Thank you my friend. So true but once love smitten far too oft common sense and logic are thrown away. I've seen that hundreds of times in my long life.

Outstanding, Robert. Panagiota is not a math person.)) of course you will win! Not because of the math, but your divine feeling for the human soul! Love, Panagiota

Thank you my friend. No good at math,eh? Not a problem, that is what handy calculators are for. True, what is a poet that speaks not from heart and soul.

You kept it to the one syllable words, Robert. That is such a difficult challenge. I hope I can find time for it before it fills up. Good luck in the contest, my friend.

Thank you my friend. Tis harder than it seems to maintain the one syllable word count-when better descriptive words in certain verses, oft would improve the piece.
