I Have Felt The Passion , I Have Felt The Flame ,
Burned In Desire , And Called Out Some Name ,
Held Out Some Hope , And Then Gave Up Dominion ,
I Flew So High , And Then Fell Into Oblivion ,
I Felt The Power Of Fire , I Felt The Power Of Ice ,
And Still I Loved , I Dared , I Sacrificed ,
Embraced My Shadow , And Revealed My Light ,
Beyond All Which Some Call Wrong Or Right ,
And You , You Who Have Lived Your Path ,
Through All Your Joy , And All Your Wrath ,
I Ask , All The Powers That Be , Just One More Time ,
In All Our Cojoined Madness , Be My Valentine !
By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
infinite, undying -
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.
- Dorothy Parker
Thank you , for those who appreciated the poetry...
And , I was hoping one poem inspired more...thanks !
Keep it going !
I squiggled lines , until I saw your message...
I do not plan on having those things happen to me...
Not yesterday , today , or tomorrows to come...
And thank the horned god I'm not Christian , because
if that's what it takes to be a saint of love , I'm out...
( was he buggered , on top of it all ? or would that be bottomed ? )
Thanks , for the post , Karen...;)
