nothing left to give

I gave you my love my sweet turtle dove I gave you my hand deep in quicksand I gave you my name "I do" you exclaim Gifts small and great even a sporadic date The child in womb procreate sweet bloom Trip round the world marriage flag unfurled A humble marriage bed sweet serenity spread A house and lovely home when your too tired to roam but I've run out of gifts and replaced them with rifts and I looked in the store there was nothing anymore

I was told by a poet I respect that this poem was greeting card drival and not worthy of my pen name. I say No! Self expression from the heart and soul need not be complicated, verbose, or adorned with length adjectives, adverbs and the like. It is my heart, therefore it is worthy of my pen name-Ijm
