First Kiss

They stood beneath the castle walls when she first kissed him.
In that moment he knew he had found his greatest love and deadliest foe.
For without her love he could not now bare to be .
Yet painfully aware was he, that she now posesed the terrible power to bring his life to ruin with but five small words .
Oh what bitter sweet pain can love bestow
Upon the unwary knight of old .
