You

Updated on June 1, 2012


You who have lost your soul

To life’s temptations

To the Lord’s forbode

Love does not reside in your home

For no man will make you his own


You who have destroyed the gentle

And wronged a man of worth

Will always be remembered

But will never be free on earth

Nor sit by the hearth with mirth


You who have laughed with glee

With those too blind from lust to see

The emptiness in your withering heart

Seeking fulfillment from titillation

With no reflection or consternation.


You who shall die alone

On your bed with a faint moan

Will have but vague memories

Of past pain and misery

Painted in your life's scenery


You who have lost your soul

Shall be welcomed in the next world

Where He awaits with passionate flames

So you may reign without shame

As you hunt for lost souls like game.

      @ Isadoras - thanks for your comment. I try my best to select the best words and matching rhythm in my poetry to convey as closely as possible, my real emotions.

      Gypsy Rose - Thank you so much. Poetry is such a wonderful medium for expressing all kinds of fantasy, emotions and situations. May we never lose our imaginations or our passion which makes for good writing.

      @ cleaner3 - thank you for enjoying my scribe

      @ epi - no my friend, this is not about you unless you happen to be a nymphomaniac, man teasing harlot who uses lust driven men for sexual gratification and then discards them one by one like a black widow spider.

      ...I sure hope this doesen't have anything to do with me - I really don't think I can/could cope with the wrath of Maria - but I sure do respect and admire her poetic wrath which makes her in my humble opinion one of the best writers at the Hub - and that is on a world class level too.
