I Love You So

The Pain of Love . . .


Abandoned grace, empty place.

I linger in this nothing space.

I close my eyes, then your face.

My love's desire ~ endless chase.


I see the words locked in your eyes.

Sweet restrain, such disguise.

But deep within your own heart lies

The truth from which you cannot hide.


One precious breath escapes my chest,

As someone says, "This is best".

I look away so none will guess

This ache is life, love has left.


Why do I love what loves me not?

How can my head make my heart stop?

Can I survive this wretched loss

Of what I love and loves me not?


This remains, a tattered soul.

One heart crushed, one lets go.

Oh my love, did you know?

Oh my love, I love you so.

....I can't say that too many writers can compose their feelings with this kind of poetic delicacy - but that is what makes you so special and unique ......
