Chisel...Like a chisel you struck.Chisel... in Free Verse More Like This
Working determinedly in
To the slightest crack,
The break I never noticed,
Chipping patiently away
At the smallest fissure.
Carving into the solid stone
Of the rock I called my heart.
To cleave it,
To break it,
To split it,
Hewn apart -
Until the hottest magma,
The hidden boiling passion
That was locked beneath
A seemingly solid mantle,
Became a volatile eruption
Spills forth like glowing lava.
A Fiery love to scorch.
To burn us both.
War with CupidAgain I draw the battle linesWar with Cupid in Free Verse More Like This
As I've done such countless times
With Cupid and his bow and arrow
Hoping in vain that somehow
I might just win the warring
And avoid his wanton shooting
But no matter what I try to do
To avoid his barbs - why can't he shoo!
They always strike! Alas! Alack!
Stabbing arrows into the tiniest crack
In my carefully applied armour
I fall badly for the wrong paramour
Cupid why just once can't you miss?
Not leave me longing for a kiss
I'd rather be lonely than in heartbreak
Sickly sweet love near gives me toothache
So February the fourteenth just for fun
Against Cupids bow I draw a gun
And try to shoot the messenger
Failure I just end up loves blind passenger
Cupid the victor I fall head over heel
A slave to this love emotion I feel
Once more I sent out cards signed 'anon'
Next year I'll try using a cannon

When nothing more stands, then we
Rebuild - together.
