Love Lay Dying


Love lay dying,
In a darkened room,
With curtains drawn,
And clothes astrewn.

Love lay dying,
In a motel room,
In the arms of a stranger,
And the stench of perfume.

Love lay dying,
Of a bitter tongue,
Where his heart was broken,
And her neck was wrung.

Love lay dying,
For all to see,
To feed man's hunger,
They made love bleed.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
