First Awakening

Updated on December 29, 2014
Source

She was a victim of a mismatched love,

And it’s time that those fools realize

That she has a voice and a soul

An undefined life you know,

Yet it took decades in a tumultuous path to go.


But her dreams were cast aside

And who were they to be blind,

Pretending not to see her real needs?

She skirted on the path of windblown leaves

While her hardened heart slowly bleeds.


And she was always there for you

And all the others that she knew

Giving everything that she had physically.

She knew every need they had mystically,

And they ignored her own vitality.


When you were free to see,

The cost was much too deep

And you just moved your mind.

Then you found another one in kind,

And your new dance had been realigned.


That one had not a nickel to show

But could understand her, though,

And henceforth was the greatest of all time.

Tears and passions flowed sublime

Where the house on the loch will shine.


And I’ll always tell you what is true

Watching you while your roses bloom

For the deepest of hopes we think escape

We reach them, while our knees are scraped

And our minds and hearts can reshape.

      What a beautiful poem. It reminds me of what I went through last year with my ex and the rebirth of my new life as I move on.

      Deny this comment for it is meant just for you.

      I would change "bleed" to "bled" in your poem's line "She skirted on the path of windblown leaves While her hardened heart slowly bleeds."

      The rest is very poetic and strong. I am sorry I had missed it until now.

      I totally agree with Eddy! Your poetry is sublime. Oddly, this made me think of nature...but perhaps that was the purpose. :) Happy New Year my friend.
