Don'T

Don't tell me that you love me anymore
Don't whisper sweet devotions in my ear
Don't kiss me when you're tasting someone else
Don't promise me the world then take it back
Don't tell me that I'm lovely when I'm not

I know that you're in love with someone else
I know you say the words I want to hear
I know your kiss means nothing anymore
I know the world is not your gift to give
I know my face is not the one you crave

So let's not play this silly little game
The things that mattered once are not the same
Don't keep me for your back-up when you're bored
Just let me be someone that you adored.

A perfectly symmetrical poem that demonstrates your very well developed skills, as well as a determination to handle this situation effectively. xx
The clear structure undescores a resolved and centered state of mind in which emotion must reluctantly be made to yield to objective control. Eloquently stated!
The message is CLEAR and delivered.... Your style does that everytime you write. Your impeccable style is highly popular here. The way you have built the tempo around the theme surpasses all efforts on the subject. Well done.
MIDNIGHT...POWERPUNCH PENNING HERE...THE TIGRESS INSIDE COMMETH OUT AND SHE DOTH ROAR WITH CHORDS MIGHTY...NICE WRITE, BLONDIE! ''''''''''''''''''''''''''FJR
This one is very well constructed and 'stylish' as Tara observes. The last two rhyming couplets are a poem in themselves! Great stuff. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
