Poem:Not so Love Poem


I sent you a letter

pleading for help after

five years of loving you.

Well two and three quarters of love

the remaining

filled with resentment

only of me holding on

to someone who couldn’t be held

tight enough.


The letter was brief, I wanted

to love you, it was hard

after the lies, the women,

the drinking and more women.

my eyes were shut

I didn’t want to know

maybe fear of being alone

set in for both of us.


The letter may have arrived

we already said good-bye

you were strong to say

I don’t love you like that anymore

my desperate prayer complete

I was given the help to let you go.

    Trust and faith are part of your creative life and persistence helps as well. Creativity wants to work through you and at some point you have to step a side to let imagination take over.

  • Writing Whenever & Wherever

    Writing is more than just putting words together to create a different world. Creativity is a way of life - sometimes you have to step out of the and let creativity take over.

                    Fog Further into the slide of doom my thoughts linger with the fog of the morning tide - I think I made you up as I shut my eyes and let the flashes of light dance freely....

Great poem, but oh so sad. To love and then let go is so difficult.
