Overthrown

White flag raised,
I surrendered
Forfeiting my heart——
Myself held captive by Love,
Yourself enjoying the spoils of war——
The battle for my kingdom won;
All that was mine now yours.

    ‘All that was mine now yours’, very romantic. And great use of imagery

      I’m glad you liked it. It took me a couple of rewrites to get it where I wanted it to. Thanks again for your kind words.

        Believe me, I know how it feels to get feedback. With poets they are open to many ideas and perspectives. But I like your work, its simple and lay down. The moral is so clear. Maybe its because I can relate to it. And please, they are not kind words, honesty is just pure and beautiful 🙂

        You are too kind. I’m overwhelmed by such words. Its nice to think my words are appreciated. That the sentiment I try to convey is clearly received. Thank you! It means a lot. Truly. =)

        My pleasure, I believe being heard is one thing, however making an impact and influence is another, people often want a big fan base so they are ‘being heard’. But it comes in on ear and comes out the other. Making a difference is what you should aim, like me :))
