Real Gone Rhyme

My poetry did charm and cheer
as I sat sobbing in my beer.
It held me (like a faithful friend)
when world of mine was at an end.

Throughout my lost and languid life,
(while shackled to a wolfish wife)
those stanzas bid me bide my time;
they sang sometimes; was so sublime!

In dungeon’s dank, dark days and nights;
temptations, trials, fond fancy’s flights;
when life had left me all alone,
and all my wildest oats were sown,

they whispered, in a still small voice,
(which made this rhyming rogue rejoice)
then vowed: true love would visit me
by streams of sweet serenity,

where I would tread my twilight years,
with Venus, through this vale of tears.
And from those tears I’d sown in time
I’d reap romance and real gone rhyme!

    what wonderful flow, so many aspects
    I can relate-to, so many elements - I admire
    these pearled words, you weaved - read
    like a baroque(esque) trochaic octa
    imbued with brave veracity's
    unwavering passion
    for poetic artistry's: majestic sublime!
    a great write, dear poet
    thanks for sharing
