Lost Romantic

by Ben   Feb 8, 2018

There resides within him
A misplaced romantic
Brooding upon his distant love

Memories of that perfect match
And all promises from a misguided one
Evanescent in a fleeting mind

A dalliance of the sweet kind
Leaves the most bitter of tastes
In the mouth of the pure of hearts

An epiphany tattooed on his soul
Which the verso to his recto
Is now merely vestigial

But the harbinger of passion
Delivers his parole.....
All in good time
