man s captured heart


My heart was fluttering like a captured bird

My heartbeat was all that was heard.

You left my senses completely blind

As you captured my heart and mind.

How can love be so overwhelming that it leaves

Your knees to shake, and your nearness is all it takes.

Love can make the strongest man weak, and the weakest man strong

Like the words of a song.

It enters your mind and you sing and hum it every day

This is the price for love that you must pay.

For true love all men are yearning, and we will take

This sentimental journey.

We are like the tortoise with a hard shell

And inside is where our heart dwells.

History shows our captured hearts

The love for JULIET, HELEN of troy, CLEOPATRA, and DELILAH

“Are we going to call them liars “?

The love for them was so strong, that in history is where it belongs.

We know that women have all the right tools

So we become fearful of being the fools.

Yet the same way that history does repeat

I lay my heart at your feet.

Do what you will if you must

And in my heart, I will put my trust.
