Delusional Love

Updated on August 6, 2012


A frozen moment
In a troubled life
Of delusional love
Born of unbearable strife

Desire with passion, with sentiment so real
Mutual respect and affinity to feel
Between strangers with ill fates sealed
Sharing tears over distant time and place
A love without room to grow nor grace
Lust and dreams on an ethereal plane
Was it just another lover's game?
‘Twas a moment in time just the same
When we felt like soul mates
Without shame

      Oh Epi - don't let anyone silence you. You are the voice and the heart of Hubpages. This is a soft and gentle and touchy feely reminder that you have unconditional free speech in any of my hubs. May your lips never be pursed in my presence - ha ha ha.

      Absolutely beautiful! Your words scream out to be heard; to be felt to be sensed. Such feeling such devotion; bravo my friend; bravo indeed.

      Your work is brilliant without exception. Your poetry full of soulful expression, coming deep from within. I have been absent from your work, I must go back in time and digest each word. Not often a poet comes on the scene with such an extremely passionate mind and heart for verse and music. Peace and blessing to you my poetic genius. Let both our pasts rest and wounds and scars leave us.
