Self Scorned

    Laughing through windows
    and starving through meals
    Not afraid of anyone
    like achillies guarding his heels

    No maiden to worship
    none worthy of praise
    Spoken  like a true gentleman
    and not only on ladies days

    The whores hide in their brothels
    only wanting of his gold
    Yet in these guilded ladies he see's his
    dream maidens image unfold

    He's always slept alone and ached
    for tender miracles
    Though none ever appeared
    merely tightening the manicles

    She's not just unworthy
    she knows well how to plan
    And you a fool of an image
    will never understand

    A little complicated although you know the true  meaning !
    Maybe the person in question is cutting of their nose to spite their face!
    hope you explain or am I just dumb  ?? Eh! don't answer that one ..
    conclusion : enjoyed

    Something or someone has disappointed you and clearly put you off finding a 'good' lady who is honest and true.

    Deep, Angry, Interesting (though sadly, almost misogynistic) work.

    That said, I also believe good poetry offers a spectrum of interpretations!

    Why do I have an advertisement for an Internet Dating Site on my forum page?

    It almost seems like he's fantasying of the perfect woman. I don't know, but I liked it.
