An Old Struggled Love


He sits and plays a true love song

While I frown he says tell me what’s wrong

I hate the things you do that’s what

You dance a smile with your strut

You have forgotten all you’ve done to me

While a picture you paint of me

Gifts and kisses you give to others

While searching for another baby’s mother

I do not understand the things you do

You leave my mind speechless with no clue

Is it a lost cause for me to think?

And carry all this burden and sink

Everything is fine when you’re not around

But when in sight I feel so low in the ground

Will I find the strength to forgive and forget?

Lighting the tip of my cigarette

Lifting the tab of my favorite beer

Hoping one day I will see love crystal clear

I know the answer to my very question asked

Which way to run, I ran very fast

When you said the three letter phrase

Holding me to my stormy haze

I don’t want to hear what you have to say

I wished for this day long time away

11 years for me too late

On my calendar I marked the date

I’m screaming from the inside out

Trying to find the words to shout

I wouldn’t dare to take that step back

To crash like two trains on the same track

Great poem and beautiful picture, bella. : ) I can see your true heart through what you write. Someone struggling to do what's right, knowing some love's are better left untouched, no matter how much it may hurt.

Shygirl, He struggled love is the ex husband and again he falls into telling me he loves me and to come home. I cannot forgive him quite yet. I think our past hinders what could possibly be. Idk if to just not talk to him period or just allow him to help mend his actions? Tough tough and tough....Thanks again this picture was taken in 2003. I was 21 years old sheesh a while ago I feel so old now!! lol

love is so rarely a simple thing, I could feel your pain and confusion pouring out of this poem, it can be hard thing to try and forgive, follow your heart but don't forget to listen to the advice of your head at the same time... Good luck!

It sounds like you have learned to be independent and propser without him. Love can be so very complicated. Do take care of YOU.

I love these lines - so visual and sensual too:

Lighting the tip of my cigarette

I never had the pain of that with a guy...but I have experienced it from others from way back. It is painful. How we separate ourselves from past loves is always tough. And it involves pain too. And love is always a risk, as there is always a chance of failure in any human endeavor. But we fall in love despite the dangers...because we are human... Great hub. Voted up. :)

Astra, I totally agree with you. As humans we know no better than to notion with our hearts and believe what we feel and see. Not understanding or foreseeing the future and what it beholds thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts.
