Dilemma


Dilemma
They fight in me my love and your love,
Yours to let you go, Mine to stop you,
What's the most precious? I always thought,
My life? That's the only thing I've got,
If not life then you will be mine,
For I can't have you crossing life's line,
Then what else that will end my hope,
And fasten me to a tree alone with a rope,
There you came with a dreadful wish,
Leaving my pleading hand, my cold flesh,
Requested me to pray for you a loyal mate,
Am I not loyal? I thought alone I sat,
Should I pray for your match? Lose you forever?
Should I pray to have you? Lose you never?

    An advice, don't lose her! ! ! The love is insane, has no way to control it! ! ! Pray, cry, suffer but if not you'll be alone! ! Beautiful! ! ! ! (Report) Reply

    A dilemma indeed! So hard to wish someone that you love happiness elsewhere, when all you want is their love in return. I like how you pit your love and hers against each other in the beginning of your poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
