A Virtue Lost and Lonely

How patience pr*cks my fingers of valued virtue,
When calmness would not keep my callousness,
Like the urgency of time ticking on my clock chiming,
And you said cats could not companion me here.

So hours slide, slippery through these timbers,
As moments meander in and out of damp doorways,
Lighting left to luminosity of the sun and skies above,
And no showered love sits soundly in these window sills.

This alchemist of aspirated affection adorns her crown,
Of lost virtue, vanity, verbosity in a fashion firmly found,
With tiers of no triumph made in recourse, all remedies rued,
Her inheritance, a throne tyrannically trammelled of what's accrued.

a poem about time spent, regrets and facing a future that I do not wish to see, one of loneliness and no children

I think many people did not review this because either their vocabulary is poor or they don't understand what this is about. I think this is about a boss of yours or someone you are employed for; maybe you as well. So interesting I read it three times. Submit everywhere. The US has all kinds of websites that you can make a living doing this. I would buy your drugs anytime tambourine lady of poetry. Good luck, again. I'm damn repetitive.

I will have to look into it sure. Thank you, the poem is about love and understanding.

Does your mind never stop. Do you use a dictionary as you go?, I am only kidding with this point, but it is amazing the thought process you have in your work. You have quickly moved into my fave 5 for writers and I will continue to read although rating your work on this site is is very suspect. What a creative mind. Sorry to repeat myslef but I Love it! 5000 stars " like the urgency of time ticking on my clock chiming"

Thanks again as always. The problem is my mind never stops lol. I am told I think too much. No I don't use a dictionary, everything is written in a book and I post it up to here. I take the wee notebook with me everywhere I go and write as I walk or sit sometimes.
