You'll love again , just watch ........a poem

It's way too late now but as I watched
her walk up to him and throw her
arms around his neck
Something inside of me
shattered
right there

Since those days and nights
nothing has ever been the
same for me
Yes we grow
of course we
mature with the
good
and bad
so be it

But do not stand there
and accuse me of not
being able to
ever truly love
You say But If I just watch
how I heal
through that

And I say some things are just
too painful
to watch

Yes, I've been there - read the book and now I've even read the poem. Such a sad but true poem...beautiful.

I love poems that are simplistic in form and length but say so much. I immediately thought back to my own lost loves, which means you did a marvelous job as a poet. Well done my friend.

It is one of the hardest things to watch the one you love with someone else and know that they love someone else and don't want to be with you. but thats your que to move on and stop wasting time on someone that doesn't love you. and find someone that does.

A lovely poem about love lost but not forgotten - and how the heart hurts when that happens. It comes back to haunt us over and over again. You express it so well.

Ed, you were right..., Through this poem, and through

my pain that keeps entering uninvited at bedtime, just before I drop off, and again waking...to remember.

We do indeed 'connect' my friend. Powerful and poignant... Absolutely awesome, Beautiful, voting Up

and sharing....hugs

I still love this...have to share it once more...

this is so Raw... so gut - wrenching

Don't know if you have used poetic license as I often do, writing myself into not real situations, I'd rather think that the case, than think of you feeling this pain

Take care Ed....I wish you happiness....and a hug...dotti
