That Seems To Be My Life

Updated on January 2, 2017

Which is worse?

I have been lucky enough to have been in love but I have also been unlucky in love. I met a really great guy many years ago, but it was as if all the powers of the universe were working against us being together. I'm not sure which was more painful: having my heart broken by a previous relationship or coming within inches of true love and then having it escape me without ever knowing my lover's embrace.

Hmm...I Wonder...

I have always overthought everything ever since I was a kid.  This is one of the many reasons that I love to read and write poetry.  Like the Thinking Man, I have embraced my inner desire to wonder.

Maybe

Maybe another place, maybe another time,

Maybe you would've been mine.

Maybe some other night,

Maybe my love will feel right.

But maybe is a broken promise,

Maybe's are hopes lost.


I must silence my heart tonight.

I must put up a fight,

To learn to live without you.


I'd be lying if I said I wasn't in pain,

From placing my heart in this restraint.

But I already love you more than I should,

I already left my heart with you.


Why must my hopes be gone?

Why must I be alone?

Why must maybe be a word that seems to be my life?

      Hi Brenda,

      You are right...it does seem to be that us women will always bear the greater burden of all things. I'm always amazed at the inner strength we all seem to have. Thank you so much for your reply and blessings. I wish the same kindness for you as well.

      Regards,

      Iris

      Hey Dear, your poem makes me feel the pain you've gone through.

      But Women have always been a symbol of strength and life is all about moving forward may whatever be.

      Keep Going & God Bless You.

      Some of life questions, have answers later on in life and some are just a mystery - no answers. It seems like it was a long distance relationship.

      Anyway, I know you have a good heart and Love will find you again. :-)
