I will write of this no more .......Poem

This ever yearning tiring need
has reached the point
of no return

Those images in the night the
loneliness in the crowds
this aching senseless burn

The fantasies when I was alone
lonely and ashamed you
ceased to materialize

All of it gone even the echoes
have silenced themselves
I now realize

In my next life I will live in the
cold regions of the blue ice
and stoic winds

And in the end I will die realizing
that if I remain alone still
then I win

No ...you look at me and smile now
and like all old souls
I see what it is you
need

Yet I know love would leave
me alone and in the end
yearning again

Perhaps only a god can deliver it
being a man alone
only shows true weakness

I am cursed in the need
and practiced in
my failure

And you
this dream and purity
of pleasure
love?

I will write of you no more

I found this poem quite a straight and to the point expression of a wicked loneliness, decisive in once and for all, letting go of love. The pain is clearly heard. Thank you for a well-done piece, ahorseback. Glad I stopped by. Voted up and beautiful.

Jan , Thank you for stopping and sharing this , this is perhaps just a bitter recollection of my earlier "life and love" experiences . Not so much now though . Merely the recollections of a shy young boy and man . Happy holidays !.....Ed

So many of your poems are about loneliness and nostalgia. Can almost feel it while reading it. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. ~ Your friend, Shannie. (Tell anyone else I let you call me that, and I might have to hurt ya. ;)

It's not fair but its written. Love is not fair or clear and it hurts. I am sorry to hear such a thing. Nice hub though.
