A Poem: Hooked

Updated on July 18, 2011

So many things in life can change

It seems like nothing remains the same

As it was when first you took a look

At whatever it was that got you hooked

It’s always a glance or a graze on the arm,

Or a smile the right way when your guard is disarmed

It’s a feeling, a moment that won’t go away

And it takes all your sorrow and keeps it at bay

Suddenly everything’s turned upside down

Your heart is alive when this person’s around

You feel your life change every time your eyes meet

And you feel so in sync, every breath, every beat

Eventually everything pauses and you

Step back, take a look and pause for review

Of this time you’ve spent building good times and love

And it comes time to choose if you’ll push, pull or shove

But you know in your heart that you’re in the right place

You can feel it, and smell it and see on your face

Every time that they’re near it’s a rush of adore

And you know every day all you’re wanting is more

You answer your question and smile the days through

Cause you know that the day you first met that you knew

You had found your own someone who makes you feel whole

And makes you smile right down to your soul

      I'm so glad you can relate, Duchess :) You're right there, it takes an excruciatingly long time before you can trust that what you trusted before won't let you down this time.

      Nice! I'm with acaetnna - This one I can relate to, and I'm happy you found him. I imagine after an abusive relationship you have to be very sure before you let yourself go again.

      Acaetnna! Glad you could relate to this one. Love Actually is such a great movie. I'm not really a 'chick flick' kind of gal, but that movie is on my top 10 for certain.

      Thank you gg, you have done a wonderful job of making me smile. I am sad, for your commenter who is in such a dark place in her life, and in complete admiration of people like you who take the time to help them. What a wonderful, selfless person you are!

      Thank you for your kind comments. Indeed you are right. Love does exist. (As is so perfectly stated in "Love Actually") Love actually is all around.

      Much peace to you, gg :)

      Hi Ladyface, it's been a while since i stopped in and am glad i decided to today.

      .... I am always heartened and impressed when someone speaks of love in all its tenderness and hope. Love is eternal. Love is all there is, whether it be for our cherished object of affection or our brothers and sisters in need around us.

      This morning i had to read a sad comment left by a lonely gal who is contemplating ending her life. The poem i wrote that she was replying to, centered on a friends death by his own hands... so sad to know she feels so alone. My reply was lengthy, and i hope to create a hub about the despair of the unknown ones, the unwanted ones...the ones unloved.

      And then, here in your poetry i find the hope i wished to convey to this woman. Love exists.

      "It's easy, love is all you need...

      Bravo Ladyface.... peace sister

      This is wonderful. I was very moved by this. Finding the right person can happen, and when we least expect it. My plans to find the right romantic partner always seemed to never work. As soon as I stopped dating and gave up, what happens? I found an amazing person. Living together now over a year. Go figure. Ha. Thank you for the lovely poem.

      They will come! It's the biggest cliche in the world, but it happened after I stopped looking. I think it had something to do with ducking out of the dating hut, just relaxing and taking a break from trying to be 'potential'. In this, you're completely relaxed and simply you, which, for whatever reason, seems to attract the good ones. :)
