DPC POETRY: The love warrior

I am a warrior but a baby at love;
I appear venomous but my heart is like a dove.
The story is true, you’re smitten but you don’t know;
no matter how strong you are, that’s what love does to you!

A “Smith” of words, that’s what they say –
Her presence dries up my words; that’s called ‘verbal dismay’…
It happens quite often when she walks by:
I am a great orator but I suddenly go shy!

When it’s time for fighting, now I say ‘no’,
cause love has me captive and won’t let me go…
I have totally surrendered my stubborn will:
‘Love’, not as I will but as thou will.
