Cast aside thy wicked heart
And let thy healing Spirit pass,
For sorrows hide in thy desires
Behind a shield of clouded glass.

Behold thy strength and thus resist
Temptation born of hellish lies,
Lest sunset find thee seeking truth
With no redemption in thine eyes.

    Heart is wicked..it keeps tempting….I loved what you wrote because, its very poetic.. lot of my poems are more like prose…but I crave to write something like what you have written.

    Thank you, Rashmi. I truly love working with language, rhyme, and meter… although my style of poetry is nearly impossible to get published these days. That’s why I cherish comments like yours so dearly – Thank you VERY much.
