THE VISIT DID NOT HAPPEN

In January~

I danced in my purple gown~
You were flying in~

I took leaps with graceful bounds! ~

Yet the visit didn’t happen~

I was left saddened~

Falling to the hard cold ground.

In February~

I paraded around in green~

You said you would be here~

You again promised me. ~

Yet the visit didn’t happen~

Again I was left saddened~

Diminishing to my knees.

In March~

I sailed with flowing orange and pinks~

I knew you would come this time~

I just new we were in sync! ~

Yet the visit didn’t happen~

Again I was left saddened~

Sinking in my tears~

My whole being grasping!

In April~

Brilliant yellow I did promenade~

Hardly a word was uttered from your mouth~

Your calls were forced and to me hard. ~

Still no visit did happen~

Again I was left saddened~

I declined into a deep depression.

In May~

With a floral print I stood erect~

Again no letters came about~

As the mail man left I folded into my secure bed. ~

And still no visit happened~

Again I was left saddened~

Even lifting my head I would dread.

In June~

I felt empowered with multicolored circles at my best~

Again no flowers did arrive~

I felt such gloom I did not know how to longer survive. ~

And yet again the visit didn’t happen~

Again I was left saddened~

Again I was hugely laden.

In July~

Satin multihued suit made me keep~

Practicing happy thoughts~

Again no card did I receive~

After the mail man left I felt a battle I had lost. ~

And still the visit didn’t happen~

Again I was left saddened~

Some of my love for you~

Gone now and lacking.

In August~

Purple poke-a-dots served me well~

The diamond promised date went by~

As you still from a distance professed your love. ~

Still the visit didn’t happen~

Again I was left saddened~

My confidence was than seriously shaken!

In September~

Plum was the color I took to the test~

Yet still I had faith to wait~

I believed you were trying your best. ~

Yet the visit didn’t happen~

Again I was left saddened~

I questioned your devotion faltering~

You a hard core battening.

In October~

In the winners circle I forced a smile~

Again you did not show~

I barely remember what you look like~

As it has been such a long while a go. ~

Still the visit hasn’t happened~

Again I am still saddened~

To me you failed at your dedication~

Your words fall short of their fastening.

In November~

I stood there dumbfounded in a fitted patterned dress~

You said it too cold for you to come~

For that day again we had not again met. ~

So the visit didn’t happen~

Again I was left saddened~

Again my trust was upset my needs a wanting.

In December~

Every color of the sky I wore to feel free~

I am left broken hearted you see~

All your empty promises never came to be. ~

Not at all did the visit happen~

Forever I am left saddened~

In a dazed state I move on~

Still unsure I hesitate some.

Readers ~ Today I am so frustrated! These are not the pictures I intended or picked out to go with this poem. UGH!

For some reason when I went to upload the pictures I really wanted from my computer Hub pages would not accept them. I even tried the pictures Hub pages had already accepted in the past and that would not work either!

So I have to assume that the upload on Hub pages is on the blink.

However the Hub page did allow me to use pictures that I had already in my files for my prior Hubs, so consequently that is what I had to use.

Although as soon as the picture upload works again on the Hub pages, I do intend to switch these pictures out for the ones I really wanted.

Sorry for my bantering but I felt it needed to be said. Have a great day!

this was a heart wrenching poem of dying hope, It brought to mind the heart of a child waiting to see an estranged parent, such endless love that slowly and surely started to doubt itself and wither away under constant rejection

I felt this and loved it,

Beautiful. Passionate. Emotional... I can relate to this. Falling for someone who ended up not coming through on one promise, then another, then pulling away - the whole time telling me they love me and me falling for it expecting them to come good on the promise. Every broken promise chipping away at me until I beganto question if there ever was any love at all. Now I have moved on, or have I.... I adore the way you move through seasons and colors. So creative and lovely. One of the best things I have read in a while.

Deborah Brooks , DanaTeresa, torrilynn , and dghbrh All of you have surprised me greatly! I truly am left speechless from all your insightful and kind words. I am glad so many people understood what I was trying to say. My secret wish is that the person I talk about in this poem would also see it, but most likely he will never read it. But I hope it helps in sharing these feelings for others to know you are never alone in any life's turn of events. Blessings to all!

Dear Lisa....

Never bother and I am very sure that the feel will sure reach the person whom you are so compassionate waiting for. Because true love always reached the heart for whom it is meant for. God bless you and your love also and always

Take care.......
