I will take a walk: A POEM

Updated on April 30, 2014

I will take a walk: A POEM

The bite birth pain
For my heart fell asleep
At the mention of your name
I will take a walk

Remember, how you sold me
And gave my food to the crowd
Stabbed me with many words
Broke the covenant we swore
That yoke that made us one
I will take a walk

Your eyes was lusty
It fed from the sugar-coated lips of men
You got drunk by their sayings
Blinded in their blindness
Each spoon you swallowed
Pleading for more
I will take a walk

Was it lost or lust?
I gave you all
But, your bum was never meant for one
It searched and yearned
Begging for more spanking and whipping
By hands not just mine
You walked through the lanes of pleasure
Forgot the oath we took
The covenant of two

For that, I will take a walk
I will fly through your heart
To remind you of the years gone by
Years of constant joy
Shared in sweet bliss
Now soiled by your strangeness

You stole my heart
You broke my heart
Now, you killed it!

      Yes, we have to give it time - maybe a break will do. That's so true, teaches. Glad you could stop by for this little piece. Your words are encouraging. Thanks so much! My appreciative heart shouts out in joy. Bless you.

      DDE, thanks to you lovely woman. A walk always works, that I support. bless you.

      A walk always works and makes you feel free and so good from the inside.

      So very heart breaking. Sometimes we cannot face the pain, we have to give it time - walk away.

      here is a wonderful list of awesomeness: Ruby, Cecile, Frank, Kathleen, MK, Eidden and wonderful Audrey; isn't it a great delight reading this wonderful piece of consolatory remarks and encouragement from you all. I am most thrilled and elated by the entourage of glad words my eyes have fed on this beautiful day. How grateful i am cannot be measured in words cos I feel happy.

      Heartbreak is an ache that can devastate even the strongest of hearts. But, writing about it is a way to break free of it; sharing it is a way of helping others gain experience.

      It is awesome to have you all here. Blessings
