a loyal heart

An honest heart
sounds one beat
Love is love truly
where two hearts meet
Not for a moment
then quickly pass on
Not one deep
the other shallowly fawn
Not one brave
where the other hides
Not one loud
while the other lies
Only where
two hearts agree
Do you have friends
and family
Love accepts no token gesture
no pretense of efforts done and lost
Love does not forget endeavour
loyalty without a cost
Love protects what is loved
starting with oneself
Love strays from abuse
couched in words of stealth
You had a love like no other
loyal, honest, true
But you were unable to accept it
because it was opposite to you
Now she’s gone away
and there’s nothing you can do
Loyalty is an emotion
stranger to you

a loyal heart
