The silly rebel who became so serious

When the words became his meaning

And wrote on his indelible soul…

Thou art the strangest beast!


Inside his troubled mind

He wrote the muddy dirt of loving

Spit out his sadness and proposed

Before her father could refuse him


The sweet virgin of the night before

Found him soft in all the wrong places

And told him of memories

Her poetry could not convince him of..


So very challenged

He endeavored to remove all her godly


So he could invest one thrust

Into her loneliness.

before she could write him off..

And she called his name…
