Beyond Expectations (a poem)

Updated on May 23, 2013
Source

Lying here

I think of you

so far away

gone from me.


It was as a dream

of everything

so near

too perfect

it must not be.


My fantasy

lies hidden

in this dream

long gone.


Love is now

but a memory

of time passed

moments spent.


One day

for some time

it was beyond

anything imagined.

      I know the feelings. Everyone can relate to this. One way of releasing the sad truth is to write it and share.

      This is kind of bitter-sweet but thoughtfully penned. Beautiful!

      Love and light~

      I'm glad you found a way to cope with bad feelings otherwise we wouldn't read your beautiful poems like this one.

      Writing can be a great way to release negative emotions.

      I have been there, too, so I understand, as well. Good work, and I hope it brings inner peace.

      That's one of the beauties of writing, I have a journal of poems; one night... I was so down, I wrote 13! :-) When people write and share... it helps others get through their moments... we are not alone! :D

      You are so sweet and encouraging. Sometimes something happens that triggers a bad memory and I start to feel bad, but writing it out really helps me feel better.
