Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

My One Sin


My one sin is falling love
with every woman I meet,
but because I am happily married
I’ll never cross the line and cheat.
Some might say that
my heart has not committed a sin,
while others might say
my heart has a flirtatious nature.
It might be because my heart was starved
of love when I grew up.
Who knows whatever the cause,
but I know I am
only a one woman man,
who looks at what my heart does
as my only sin.

    Wonderful to meet this one woman man, who falls in love with every woman he meets, because he was starved of (women's?) love when he grew up.
    You are not the only kind, I guess! (Report) Reply

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
