When love is near and passion afire


                             

                                                                  

              Prisoner of the Heart
                            (
Words and Recitation by Richard Lee Orey)
 
                             Your face appeared and my world stood still
                             I knew I couldn't part
                             Enchanted by your image
                             A prisoner of the heart
                             Unable to speak or breathe or move
                             My mind and body and soul
                             No warning shot across my bow
                             Your love my only goal
                             Shamelessly I pursued your love
                             With flowers and words and deed
                             As you gave to me your lovely smiles
                             Gentle touches that I need
                             Yet here I am with passion afire
                             Unable to stay or part
                             My mind and body and soul are yours
                             A prisoner of the heart
                             You turn to walk away
                             But I can't let you depart
                             I drop to a knee to plead my love
                             A prisoner of the heart
                             I catch your eye and hold your hand
                             I pray to God above
                             And a prisoner of the heart is gone
                             Now partners in true love
                                   The lesson I learned that all should know
                             Is when love is at your door
                             You've got to throw your cards on the table
                             In life there's nothing more
                             When love is near and passion afire
                             And you can't bear to part
                             Get on a knee and plead your love
                             As a prisoner of the heart
                             O, the lesson I learned that all should know
                             Is when love is at your door
                             You've got to throw your cards on the table
                             In life there's nothing more
                             When love is near and passion afire
                             And you can't bear to part
                             Get on a knee and plead your love
                             As a prisoner of the heart
                             Yes, get on a knee and plead your love
                             As a prisoner of the heart

As an untrained poet, I sense an ordained form to this poem; unfortunately, I cannot identify it. However, I can still enjoy and appreciate the skill of your writing.
Seems like a long time since I've seen your name here, so I'm glad you're back and hope you are well.
I borrow a word from your first stanza--the poem is enchanting!

Beautiful, Richard! Filled with romanticism and deep meaning. Your poetic ability has really grown and I think seeing a couple of poems turned to music has been a great inspiration for you. Keep them coming, Richard. You truly do a nice job with all your poems.
