I am so happy to see you, please stay as long
as you can and share
This poem is all about the way we take others for granted
and fail to realize the hurt we cause to the ones
who loves us the most.
I wrote this many years ago
when I was looking for love in all the
Amazing, isn't it, how that great big sun can
lose all it's brilliance...
a fact that eludes everyone but me
And no one but me seems to notice how the most
beautiful moment turns ugly and distasteful.
I often hear the thunderous noise that silence makes
when I am alone and deep in thought...
I've heard the crumbling, tearing, twisting, shattering
sound of a breaking heart
and I've felt the piercing pain of a splinter here and there.
If life were mine to decide, I'd give this one away...
in exchange for another that's capable of attracting
and keeping love.
Can anyone ever know how deeply and sincerely
another gives that deceptive emotion called love?
We were put on this dear earth to live and love...
among other things, but I wonder, is there such
a thing as love without hurt, and if there is
why does it always pass me by?
So many people never experience love...
are they the lucky ones, I think they are.
Very few people find, recognize, hold on to,
and cherish true love when it is offered to them.
Can it be because this tender emotion can cause
delirious happiness, and yet deep pain all at the same time?
Loyalty and principles are two fine qualities
we should all strive to attain...
but it is my experience that they never warm the heart...
they stifle true feelings and almost always
lead to hurt and disenchantment.
