So much more to this than meets the naked eye. My only hope is that this is looked upon by it’s intended audience and it stirs within her a tear of understanding. So bittersweet how there can both always and never be a we.
This question new and now to ponder
Harsh reality has seen me to my knees
My heart skips three beats as I wonder
Who can we be, if we cannot be we?
Much has changed in the blink of an eye
Our truth may wield the sharpest of swords
That time wasted leaves me asking why
As wrongfully I continue to bury us in words
I stand quietly to face my fates as they arrive
Standing naked, soul bared to my cherished
My heart screams as it fights to remain alive
For I know without her my heart has perished
Deceits thrown about to cover scalding fears
May take their toll on others too weak of heart
Yet once pain subsides and the smoke clears
A choice is made freely to never stand apart
Same perspective from a much different view
I must now give up in hopes to ever get back
What’s lost is nothing compared to what’s new
Undying love and respect is nothing that I lack
You are both blessed to have each other. Beautiful poem, John. One of your best — and that’s what happens when you let your heart speak. Love and hugs, friend.
This was both the easiest and hardest piece I have ever written D. I will be in touch. Be well.
Fucking exquisite John. Xx
Thank you J. It was an emotional one. Blood, sweat, and tears type stuff really. Exhausting.
It was well worth it…the end result of poetry is epic. Big Hugs
It may be well worth it but I would give ANYTHING to make it unnescessary
Real, raw…..hope the feelings go both ways……
They do. A unique situation to be sure but it is a mutual understanding as well as a longing. Only time knows what is truly in store for us both, but I know we will not be too far apart as the future unfolds.
