He looks out to the stars
And he thinks of your eyes
How, even in the darkest nights
They glisten so brightly and beautifully

He stands at the edge of the tide
And he misses the passion
That he can only know
Just by being near you

He does not ride a steed of snow white
And he will not compose a sonnet
Never will he stand at your door
Carrying a box of chocolates and roses

Your love is like the blood in his veins
The only thing keeping him alive
And every night you sleep alone
He dies a painful death

He will tear down the gates of hell
And rip the devil apart
Face the wrath of all Gods and deities
Just to wipe away your tears

And if your heart was broken
He would pull out his own
And offer it to you freely
So you may live on

His words are of macabre
But his soul is only of love for you
He is your strong-in-heart poet
Your loving dark romantic

The inspiration was given to me after talking to a friend about a conversation they had had with their partner. This immediately leaped into my mind. It's quite different to my other works, but I rather like this one.

You can find this poem in my book 'Permit Me To Dream' which you can buy on amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, amazon.ca and other online book stores.

Great poem! Once again very well written. I really like the "dark" tone of this one. It adds a little edge and mystery! ;)

he
said no. She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry, and

again he replied with a no. She had heard enough. As she walked... See Moreaway, tears streaming down her f......ace the...
... See Moreboy grabbed her arm and said.... You're not pretty
you're beautiful. Idon't want to be with you forever. I NEED to be
with you forever. And Iwouldn't cry if you walked away...I'd die...

#1 - It's spam. No one likes spam.
#2 - I work hard on my works and you use them as a forum for ridiculous posts.
#3 - You posted in on SEVERAL deviations.

And you thought it wouldn't bother me? Try to show some respect to your fellow deviants please.
