The Knight and Me

by Meena Krish   Jan 22, 2018

He is my hope
who keeps my path alight
with my pain he elopes
far into the night
he catches lines between
riddled songs I write
his silent smile gleans
secrets I hold tight,

Yet words never part
from one lip to the other
instead kept like an art
a mystery for others
this story between
the knight and me
is a love scene
never to be…

    Such a beautiful write, the ending very sad, a love scene never to be. One of only thoughts, love floating on wishes and thoughts. Though in a heart as real as the words on the page. Deep as the sky of the night. And yet sadly just as distant. You captured the whole theme of this particular love.

    A secret love who carries your pain with him yet is a love story for just the two of you never to be. It is so sad but so full of emotion. I am glad that it has been nominated. Beautiful Milly x

    This is beautiful but it seems like this is a secret love unfortunately especially as love should be shouted from the rooftops in my opinion. Take care x
