 My King



I treated you like you were
My king,
your majesty
Royal highness, m
y every thing


I gave you my heart

My emotions
I did not tarnish your freedoms


Yet you wanted to put chains on me but

No mans’ chains can ever

Put a binding on me


For-warned of a spirit

Captivatingly free

A perpetrated fraud of not what

You wanted but

What you gave to me

When I was truly happy


You stole my smile from me and

Yet you told me

You loved me exclusively


While you were my subject of affection

I loved you completely

Sweetly, spiritually I loved you

As no one ever dared before me
My king, your majesty

Royal highness, my every thing

This poem makes me think of experiences my own daughters have gone through recently. Trusting our heart to the care of another is a foolish, wonderful, courageous thing to do. The nature of love itself is risk--God risked the eternal fellowship of his son when he sent him to earth robed in the fragility of flesh. To love is to risk. There is no pain so powerful as love disappointed. I'm glad you printed the disclaimer (not personal, etc.)else I would have asked you his name. (not really :-) Authenticity rules in this poetic piece.

Spoken of many lives, when dominance "tries" to rule1
I enjoyed"MY KING"
downright life filled with depth of honest feelings shared!
Being a Taker is not for me either, a giver - gives from the heart and wants too, without any strings attached and when "YOU" are HAPPY! THEY are HAPPY Truthfully and not in a fake kind of way!

STay Positive!

Yes, freedom can be more important than love, unless you have met your soulmate and then you enjoy 'freedom' together. best wishes!
