Scribblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul



Knights Are Myths


Knights Are Myths

My father once told me,
Do not believe in knights
They don’t ride warhorses
Or fight battles for their lords
Some wore fancy armors
Only to be struck down
By temptation’s arbalest
Some will play you like chess
Saying one step forward
Walking two steps back

Instead, he told me to fall for
A man with the taste of the sea
Someone who knows
The dangers of the ocean
And the gusts of the wind
Someone who, despite
The beauty of the deep,
Will find a shore to return to
Someone who knows the pain
Of a wound drenched in salt

She is beauty personified, goddess of unending love;
Her lips speaks of desire and of undying love.

She winks to the sunny sky and breathes the morning air,
Walks amidst the splendor of a purifying love.

But mortals have shaped, altered, and clouded,
Of what she once deemed as gratifying love.

They cradled what’s tantamount to treachery and deceit,
Dimmed the lights to the road of a terrifying love.

Some old souls, however, continued to believe,
In the true charm of Aphrodite- a mystifying love.

Another out of town that called for an absence in the blogosphere. This is me catching up to NaPoWriMo. Here’s for Day 15. XD

Day 15: Because today marks the halfway point in our 30-day sprint, today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that incorporates the idea of doubles.
