An illict affair bore a love and bore lies. I committed my life and was manipulted for months by lies. She never committed in reality.


Copyright ©2008 Ed J

Written 7 January 2008

Built were our eternal dreams
High upon a true love’s pyre
With words that melded souls
That lived in passion’s fire


Forged in truth my given words
That my heart earnest spoken
Life pledged with offered rings
Love’s material symbol token


Union’s love forbidden
Cast out by social Trier
Love forever driven
By illicit flame’s desire


Securities now are lost
In loves name sacrificed
In so doing grants us honor
In our adjoining lives


I’m left with none but broken vow
With my despair of dreams
Conscience of each falling tear
That bears my tortured screams

I’m alone in the hallows
Of my self-sacrifice
Forsaken for love shallow
In your heart full of lies

Victimized by pen’s allure
The life I had now gone
For unfulfilled your promised words
That would bring us to our dawn


These betrayals you’ll always bare
From this love, you divest
You know not how to truly care
So false love I lay to rest

It is too bad that others can fool you and take advantage of you, I know the story behind this as well

Aye, I am aware of the whole story behind this. But as you said dear Eddy, you truly felt no loss for you never really loved her.

However, you do write very well about tainted words, lies, a false love, and never the intention to commit to your soul. As you know, good thing. She is not a well soul.

Love and Light

Sadly, the theme that you share through your verses is an all too common and universal one in this life/world, Ed. Love, peace, and best wishes,

Poignant! This depicts the cycle of love, and love gone amuck. A lesson we should learn - R.I.P.

God bless you. Kathy

Many lessons to be learned in "Despair of Dreams". Outstanding composition... A poetic accomplished task.

In admiration,
