Shuhan [On Leave] (Inyourclosetinyourhead) ¤~¤~¤~¤Lover Thief¤~¤~¤~¤
•~•~•~•Shuhan {Sparkling Mandarin, The Diabolical Iniquity}•~•~•~•

A fair maiden,
A fair maiden,
Roams the village paths.
A basket on her arm,
So far? Safe from harm.

So suddenly,
So suddenly,
A highway thief leaps,
He leaps on a passing carriage,
And of course, don't ask for marriage.

He grasps...
He grasps...
He grasps a bag of gold,
Unsheath his mighty sword
And leaps away from the aboard.

That love,
That love...
"Twas ever so strong,
When that genteel maiden and highway man,
Risked that glance before he ran.

Who followed?
Who followed?
But that lovely young girl.
Following the shinjng sword he sheath,
To find her highway thief.

The highway thief?
Ah yes.
He collided into her.
They scurried behind a building of fame,
When he asked for her name.

"My name?
My name,
Is Isabelle, the daughter,
Of a wealthy man from government,
Yes, for my location, "twas a hint."

Glancing around,
Glancing around,
Surreptitiously, he whispered in her ear,
"Sweet bonnie sweetheart,
Watch for me at moonlight. I'll pass the path Hell bars."

Beyond flattered and gleaming,
raised her hand for him to kiss,
And so he did, a kiss to miss.

And so,
And so,
He turned and ran away.
His shiny black boots strapped to his knees,
Tapping an even soft rhythm that would please.

In love,
In love,
He was but also,
He was a liar.
He was a thief.
Isabelle never saw her thief again.

Roxanne Shriver (roxannexshriver) Whoa. That story took a surprising turn. Before I started reading this poem, I had thought that the lover and the thief would be different people... but they're the same guy? Wow.

This was a wonderful poem. I really liked how it wasn't what I had been expecting. ^w^

Shuhan [On Leave] (Inyourclosetinyourhead) Sorry it took so long to get back to you.

Thanks! I'm glad someone liked it ^_^ I wanted this thief to be romantic but heartbreaking......
