Little King of Sorrows


Not for Sale


For the life of me I'll never know.

I'm trapped in time not long ago.

Each morning sun anew.

Endless roads await.

Yet I'm chained by sadness.

My manifested fate.

Lustful eyes be winking.

All longing for a dance.

But heart is steady beating.

The tune of lost romance.

The bids are getting higher,

but my love just isn't there.

My songs of pain betray me,

under needy eyes that stare.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Being treated like dirt for not pretending to be in love.I would rather feel pain that is genuine than lead someone on with something that will never be. And it's been a rather reoccuring theme lately. What's wrong with friends?
