Hear the harp gently glisten
‘If music be the food of love’
Then listen.
I craved your love like the carbonated air,
It seemed to me you just didn’t care.
No passion, no bliss,
No bond or love,
No faith at all in God above.
I trusted you, open up,
I let you in.
I soon found my nightmare,
My angel of sin.
Inch by inch your heart disappeared.
That was the loss I truly feared.
Inside me you were that radiant fire,
Now I’m filled with complete un-desire
I feel no love for you,
Neither strong hate.
We can’t fix the unfixable,
It’s far too late.
I used to be your lady,
You my gallant Macbeth
But you choosing you life over my life
Meant our death.

This poem is really good. 'My angle of sin', total parodox but true genius. You have a talent with words that not many other do and your so young. If i was you i would consider a carear in writing becuase its obvious to me you have a real talent.
