    Poem Commentary

    The struggle of keeping love fresh and true , trying to keep balance , the jealousy of wondering if a mate is wishing he was with someone else

    MY SAVING KNIGHT

    I need you to be my saving knight.
    need you to rescue me from a new plight.
    restore my honor as you once have,


    remember when i was your only pleasure
    i was your cure
    you made sure i was kept pure
    i long for you to put me first
    i have too many temptations causing me to flirt .
    i love you , but i feel your distant
    this is why i provoke with persistence.
    please court me as if we just met,
    however know my needs like i'm your life's invest.
    We've been through tests before ,
    this is more than a test .
    i come off as demanding , but it's a simple request.
    i once knew how to keep your interest,
    now i feel someone else is getting your best.
    what happened to me being better than the rest.


    i need you to be my saving knight .
    need you to rescue me from a new plight .
    Now i plot and plan just to stay in demand.

    where is our future going , was it all just a game .
    i know things happen in a season, for a reason,
    but we made promises sealed in our book of
    love with certain pages creased.
    my world was so chaotic without your kingship rulings.
    i was drowing in my own emotional flaws
    you helped to light my path and introduced me
    to the higher powers law.
    you we're my very breath,
    maybe i was wrong for choosing you to trust .
    i know to my past i can't return,moving towards my future is a must
    didn't i follow your lead ?          
    what did i fail to heed?
    i feel like your starving me of your love ,
    i make sure i'm home, that theirs food on the stove.
    i thought you love in me what you'd found ,
    thought this is how i earned my crown.
    Now we hardly communicate,
    and laughs are forced a fake.
    i don't know what else to do ,
    i put my dignity on self serve platter,
    the fact that i'm now open and vulnerable doesn't even matter.
    Do you remember what you loved
    about me ?
    Is my love enough to set your pain free ?
    I need you to be my saving knight.
    need you to save me from a new plight.

    A cry for help in so many ways. This is you pleading for the man you once knew to return to you in the love you found him in. If he's out there I hope he is listening :)

    loved the poem. it's very true after awhile for some reason after a guy get you they think they can just slack off. but in truth and in fact they have to keep up what they started or someone else will.

    I can relate to this poem quite well. Felt the same way in my marriage long ago, which is why I'm single now. A very good write.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
