Random Poem:

Regret Bloody Regret!

To My Beloved Elizabeth.
Your beauties indescribable,
     Your smile innocently set my heart aflame.
Your gaze caused my soul to tremble.
     My emotions, I found unable to tame.
You descended into my life as if a dove,
     Such a blessing to breathe your essence.
It seemed to me a match fitting as a glove.
     If only I could withstand your holy presence.
Not worthy of your affection,
     I soon began to shrink.
A wave of love and passion,
     Brought my tears to brink.
How could god release such a treasure,
     To such a filthy world?
How could he expect me to maintain this pleasure?
     His pure kindness had been impearled.
Elizabeth, even though you knew me not,
     You had been the wife of my dreams.
You had been there when I cried, and my tears you caught.
     With your sweet disposition, you soothed my screams.
If only I had seized the opportunity,
     Taken the moment for what it was worth.
We could have had such gorgeous unity,
     I would have a new life,
     It would have been rebirth.
