Love's exile
Do I have a way with words?
or does my heart swell with a beautiful passion
like a sunset?
all the colours of anguish,
and overwhelming wish.

Do I have an inferior heart?
a heart never to burn,
merely to yearn in infatuation,
a heart never to belong,
to become weak, not strong.

How can I abide the longing
when my heart aches so to love?
and it is like imprisonment
this loneliness that captures my heart
hit me with your cruel darts.

Don't make me an exile to love
I have travelled far enough to reach it
and I have walked on glass and spikes,
through dislike I pine
for love's magical sign.

A lonely wanderer through the desert,
a solitary cloud in the sky,
a flake of snow in the rain,
feels like a million miles,
don't make me love's exile.

some wonderful images and a nice concept of an exile from love but for me the penultimate line of the last two verses don't fit and weaken a very good poem (but only my personal opinion : )
