A Poem About Stolen moments: A Kind of Loving

Updated on April 6, 2014

Jo has been an ITU nurse at the London North West NHS Trust for 14 years. She obtained her RN at University College London Hospital.

Love and Betrayal

He came to her from the womb of night

Seeking redemption in soft caress

Fluttering hearts danced in sweet delight

Hungry lips ignites fire to transgress


Unbridled, the lust flooding glazed eyes

Surrendered into the waiting tide

As many questions, on her lips dies

Passion flowed and chary put aside

Petulant child, needing reassurance

Holding fast to point of endurance

He drank the salty tears from her cheeks

Fire in her eyes the answer he seeks


Part time love not fully realized

In wake of storm lovers moralized

His other world will always come first

Blessed and cursed the love they thirst

Gone too soon the stolen moments shared

Passage of time leaves them unprepared

Moments of memories bottled in jars

Ecstasy transcends beyond the stars


With the dawn, he'll leave for those deceived

Alone she's feeling naive and aggrieved

Drinking his essence from silk brocade

Maybe tomorrow she'll end the charade


Again he'll come with passion and lie

Demanding love, without which he'll die

She'll wish she had left, just ran away

One more betrayal as she bid him stay

If you seek the truth, you may find comfort; if you seek comfort, you may not find either.
If you seek the truth, you may find comfort; if you seek comfort, you may not find either.

      I agree...this is heartfelt, tobusiness. There are times when one feels torn having to maintain a "hidden" love. Votes up and shared!

      Max, thank you so much for the insightful comment, always appreciated. Best wishes.

      PHILLYDREAMER, some people need the drama like an addic need his fix, but I think if we were to look at 100 such relationships we would fine 100 different reasons, but yes, self esteem has a lot to do with it. thank you for stopping by, comment much appreciated. best regards.

      Mhatter99, Many thanks for the visit and comment, hope you're having a wonderful day.

      I don't know if it's the fear of being alone, or just an overall low self esteem, but many times we hold on to a situation like this for dear life, because we can't imagine something better.
