True Love Waits

Today I felt my life come to an end
You took the best of me without a thought
For you was it just a game of pretend
Within your web of sultry I was caught

I don't believe that you ever loved me
Is it possible that I could be wrong
Did love somehow make you my enemy
and now I'm left to sing this horrid song

With sexy heels you stomped upon my heart
I cried as I watched you walk out the door
If only I had known from the start
I wouldn't be a puddle on the floor

Without you I don't think I will survive
When you were with me I felt so alive





I have missed you  please won't you come back
The sky without you is no longer blue
Open the door of your love just a crack
Kiss me baby I want to be with you

I forgive you please dear won't you come home
Not one day is complete without your love
For you I'll write my thoughts within this poem
My dear you are a vision from above

Day and night you are always on my mind
Your beauty is truly beyond compare
There is no greater love that I will find
 A life of bliss together we can share

Today my life it truly has begun
I'll worship you as if you were the sun



Thankfully a fictional write. Two English Sonnets for contest.

Even if Phillip will never judge this, it was a great contest... The first contest sonnets I wrote for Soup. I am awed by yours, they are wonderful. Really the push away-pull back in... Good it is fictional :)

I can write as you do also and those who read me think I am spilling my heart, especially my friends - I tell them no, I am a writer with a great imagination - yes, it is all fictional. WTG with these two heartfelt Sonnets... 7!

How a blessed with much happiness man can write painful poem as this? A beloved who is forgiven will always live in the shadow of his betrayal thus love would never grow my friend, Richard. I have to admit the power and beauty of your poem is evident!
