    Poem: My Love

    Knight In Front of Woman from Pexels

     

    Happy Women’s History Month! I wrote this poem about a year ago, and it’s one of the favorites I’ve ever written. I hope you all enjoy it!

    Wake up! wake up! I say to my love

    He came from there and might go back to above

    An arrow yes, it pierced his heart,

    but let me my dear go back to the start

     

    my brother, yes, my dear older brother

    Went crazy and killed my dear old mother

    We mourned her and mourned her for days and days

    We tried but we could not disperse the pain

     

    My father told me to run away

    In case my brother came back for me another day

    He sent with me a knight in armor

    I was skeptical cause he was one in number

     

    We set out in the dead of night

    I did not want to go the so we had a fight

    It woke my brother up and I kid you not,

    He started hacking and hacking at the lock

     

    We had no other option so we jumped out the window

    It was kind of fun but when I landed it hurt though

    He took me to the woods to hide in a hut

    When he took me away from my family it felt like id been cut

     

    When I look back, it was all for good reason

    But I was so angry I wanted to commit treason

    In the sense that I wanted to go back

    I knew it, I just knew it, I was about to crack

     

    But the knight in armor, yes the caring knight

    When I was scared, he held me tight by night

    Yes, as you can imagine we soon fell in love

    Yes, my love that came from above

     

    We hid in the woods for ten long years

    We got married had kids but the end was near

    My brother had not come out of his spell

    I heard he was like a demon from hell

     

    My brother, yes my dear older brother

    soon found us in the woods by the river

    He found my husband and put an arrow through his heart

    And here we are back where the story did start

     

    Wake up! Wake up! I said to my love

    My knight in armor still did not budge

    He died, yes, right there in my arms

    I vowed to destroy my brother who brought him harm

     

    That’s my story, I hope you enjoyed it

    But mark my words this isn’t the end

    I might come back and tell you a different tale

    But until then, so long, farewell
