 REDDIT ME:      


  Ring of Love. A poem by Australian poet Graeme King depicting the conflicts of a modern love affair. ©kingpoetry2007.


This is a family poem in sonnet form. The "ring of love" signifies a boxing ring rather than a wedding band.

You wish to scratch my skin and watch it bleeding

perhaps to suck the essence of my starlight?

Our mad affair is something like a bar fight

we bite and punch, with neither one conceding.

I kick you in the head with innuendo

you counter with an uppercut of crying

that quickly turns to threats and blame implying

I throw the towel to stop this mad crescendo.

You fall into my arms and vow forever

I kiss away your dark indignant sorrow

and wonder if we'll both survive tomorrow

you ask if I would leave you - I say: Never.

A timely truce agreed that lasts till morning

another day of war breaks with the dawning.
