OctPoWriMo 29 - All I Need

Today's prompt is our own personal love story. This ballad is dedicated to my husband Mark.

All I Need

Romeo and Juliet
Were really rather blind.
David and his stolen queen
Had no peace of mind.

Cleopatra never knew
The joy of growing old.
Lancelot and Guinevere
Made Arthur a cuckold.

You and I will never be
An epic tale of love;
I don’t care, for what we have
Is greater than above.

We don’t need poison, lies, and murder
For drama in our life.
All I need from you, my love,
Is to be your wife.


  1. Awesome!! What an amazing witness of your love!

  2. That is as beautiful as you, my dove.

  3. The third stanza is so true and my favorite! Thank you for sharing!
