All is fair in love and war- A Sonnet

This poem was featured in The Hedge Apple Magazine 2023, Maryland, USA

You seem no more mesmeric and beautiful

Than fallen roses in cold winter’s grace,

I’ve grown nonchalant and unmindful

Of your beguiling charms in life’s fast race.

Your words of love and blessed life together,

Again, try to make me their smooth prey

But I move not like a dainty feather,

Though it pains me to stay away.

Life’s other charms astutely call upon me,

Willingly offer so much more!

It’s where I truly need to be, I believe

Oh Why! Hadn’t I seen them before?

At last, I break from your shackles and drift afar

Everything, my dear, is fair in love and war.
