Love’s New Foe

by Ruhig

A soul sought
Amid brash
Admirable
Desirable
Even meek
All for naught
My timorous love
Too lacking
Material
Beyond
Glimmering eyes
Flashing fingers
In fire wrought
“One-off”
Their selfish words
Devastating
Demoralizing blows
Parried
With truth
For my soul
By none
Shall ever be
Bought
