Cruel Duress

She won't accept cruel censure by duress.
Bestow it not upon this priceless jewel
Who fills my soul with happiness and bliss,
And will not be denied sweet love's renewal.

No other lady shows such strength and charm.
No gentlewoman holds my heart's delight.
We shall rise upward never knowing harm
Because our love is pure and knows no blight.

Her sword of power forces cowards out,
With every pass she makes against her foe.
We stand together never knowing doubt
That this is how true love must ever grow.

My smile endures through any form of strife
When contemplating how she lights my life.
