Lover's Lament

Lover's Lament

Barbed wire garrotes
An ignorant heart
Sanguine tipped barbs
Pierce like a dart
Lies flow from
Saccharine sweet lips
Dark, arduous
Like molasses drips

Come lover
Tell me more
Bittersweet so
Worth living for
A simpleton has
No reason to beware
Surrender keen
In a passionate affair

Kept imbalanced
A distorted scale
Too proud to admit
Love’s epic fail
Like all dreams of
White picket fences
Chaos ensued
Makes ruin of defenses
