Retracing the steps to love from a broken heart

Updated on January 17, 2016

It wasn't planned to end, but it did,

Can it be fixed and loved again,

Will the hole in my chest be closed with a new lid,

Or will my life be decided with the life of men,

I was use to the magic that could not be described,

The feelings, I felt when my heart knocked, felt through my entire body,

The passion that collided with an affection that I could not hide,

Unlike any other odyssey told,

But a prophecy untold,

I wish there was a safety net to catch what we had,

Or a bag of gold to pay to the leprechaun guarding the rainbow that connected us,

Can this just wake up from this dream, so I could stop this from being real,

If I could just find a way to adjust,

I would submit to love, on both my knees, to feel that healing touch.

      Yes, I felt the despair and sadness in this, as I believe you have lost what you feel was the right one, and now you wonder if it can be fixed, and if it can't, will anything ever come along and feel the same as you did with this love.

      I don't know if this is the purpose of your poem, but that's how it translates to me, and it is beautiful, for I have been in this situation myself. It's really hard to describe, and you portrayed longing and hurt feelings very well. It was beautiful.
