A Lonely Yorkshireman

The contradicting ramblings of a sodding old fool

Not for me

with 2 comments

A fair wee Irish lass there be,
eight of dress, short than me.
Smiling fair, soft brown hair,
button nose and filled w’ glee. 

She lights the room when enter, I
be staring at wee butterfly.
The sad, the pain, the solemn day
at once sent packing, on its way.

I yearn for touch that cannot be.
For love and ring, eternity.
Her heart been promised to a king,
of men, a gentle man is he.

Therefor I stare with heart at rest
once beating, toiling in my chest.
And stare , not touch
And want, not have
She loves, not me
Forever be
Her… there
Here… me

Go to! Thou cruel eternity.

  1. Kudos on finding such fantastic rythm, good solid start and a steady middle that gutters towards the end, then expires in a whisp.

    And it is a lonely soul who does not relate to unrequited love.

    Kudos on the whole bloody thing.

    • Hi,

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I did not expect to have anyone comment on this as it’s just an outlet for my emotions and experiences.

      All the best
