But soft

by Dancing Rivers   Sep 2, 2015

But soft does my heart break to see,
the beauty in your misery.
When evening's plight- the sun doth seal-
what bitter joy shall we reveal?

Tender hatred warms your smile,
when nature births something vile.
Satyrical sincereity, bleeds through your veins.
My love -society- I wish you'd fade away.

But soft, I must rekindle this ice,
and set alight the soil of your delight.

To bring about a truthful deception.

Perhaps my own redemption.

    when nature births something vile."

    Poetic perfection. I love the 'old world' feel to this created not only by your choice of wording but also by the rhyme and flow. This one is definitely going in my favourites. :)
