Truth

Truth

You were
my king
my idol
I worshipped you
each day
bringing you
gifts of fruit
and flowers
touched by sunshine
kissed with tears
and made
with my love
 
You feasted
on my bounty
and reclined in
the warmth
of my passion
Enjoying
the relief of my
rescue
I filled the
emptiness
in your dark heart
and became
your doormat

      Yes, I wasn’t sure where I was going with and that’s where I ended up! 🙂

        It felt different from your usual ones but I still liked it.

      Thank you. Luckily not me Ivor but I’m sure many have fallen into that trap sometime in their lives 😢

        Yes, there’s lots of doormats out there…
