Face the Pain - A Love Poem

Updated on March 20, 2014

Lately when we look at each other

Our eyes speak nothing but pain

Revealing these uncertainties

When no one is to blame

Let’s stop pointing the finger

This choice, we need to make

Even if we take baby steps

It will be the path we chose to take

Out of tune doesn’t make us empty

Perhaps, a little out of touch

Love is not a weapon

Or a simple crutch

Together, we need to stay focused

Patient, peaceful, and strong

Giving all we have to give

Whether we stay, or just move on

I have way too many memories

To simply kiss them all goodbye

So I want a bigger collection

Which means I’m selfish, and here to try

Know that I still love you

Although, at times we’ve been so cold

Even while we’re bickering

It is you, I long to hold

Whatever happened to us lately?

Things got so way out of hand

This is just not us, who we are

Not our fashion, style, or brand

We are one of a kind

Made sturdy and built to last

Let’s get back what we lost

And put it in the past

      Thanks, Poetic Fool for the lovely comment! And it's true, sometimes relationships can change so quickly, leaving us to did we get here? And how do we fix it? I've felt this way many of times, and it's never easy. But I do hope that in your relationship, it all works out for the best! Where there is love, I believe anything is possible!! :)

      Your words strike home because I am in a similar place right now. Both of us wondering how we got where we are and where to go from there? This is a touching, bittersweet expression you've created. Well done.
