Heart And Spade

she digs out his heart
with a spade
a queen
controlling the king
possesses the powers
and the secret card
what story it guards
her gaze mysterious
and yet it commands
authority so royal
an empire shall bow
to this enigma

  1. Oh I loved this one . . . . I was laughing so hard at the opening:
    She digs out his Heart with a Spade!!! . . . . priceless

    No doubt he was a bit of a Jack the lad she Clubbed him first
    And stole all his Diamonds.

    You are a bit of a Joker and I thought this was Ace.
    But then I read it again and got the mistique that followed
    Loved it.

    Nice to meet you ~ Eddie

  8. So good, Amrit. Sometimes we men won't admit how much power women have over us!!
    In my Bible I carry a picture I drew af a heart with an arrow through it. It is captioned "Arlene stole my heart."
    Every now and then I find it and show her (Mrs. Jim). She beams and blushes slightly. I love her still, after 41 years of being married.
