Latched

Magpie #92 


A lady had a lover that stroked her care free hair.
He held her mighty love with a gentle kind of care. 
Kindred spirits they became through day and through the night.
Like a lock and key they latched together close and tight.
Yet through the test of time, what they had faced many storms.
What held them together became weak and mighty worn.
Then one day her lover became a stranger setting her love free
But this lady holds no freedom, for her heart is locked now with no key.

  8. I like the title and the image of being "latched."

    Sad that it came undone.

  9. All the more tragic because it is so commonplace, I fear.

  10. A very deep and touching poem, indeed her heart is locked, with fear of being hurt again

  11. Pulling off a rhyming verse that is so touching is a tough thing and you did a wonderful job.
