The Break-Up: Keeping Hope Alive (Poem)

Updated on July 17, 2012
M K Paul profile image

I love to write, to express my thoughts, my emotions, my joys and my sadness through my words ,through my poems.Welcome to my Poetry Section


With the hopes for future dreams

and the promises, we’ll stay together

till death, you said.

The hopes has faded,

the sun has turned grey,

the contradictory mind

we wear each day.

The path where we danced once,

divided into two,

one for me and other for you.

Go wherever you want,

wherever you find peace,

no bond from my side,

I was at the least.

I stand and gaze

at this line between us

and wonder how it became so

broad and ruin our trust.

The marriage is over,

tear may come.

Never expext, the journey has

ended such a way, in such a term.

Wish there's a brighter rainbow

waiting for you.

Take time and think,

you'll definitely boom.

I am here always for you,

come, when you think

you can open the door between us

with the key of your strength.

      I've never seen this before. Usually if their is a big rift between a couple, both of them stay stubborn. It must be hard being the person who wants things to be good again, and sit waiting for the other person to stop being stubborn.

      True love brings many hard times with it. It is your attitude that keeps the door open. Nothing good is ever easy. If its good and ture it will be.

      Wonderful expression of strife in any relationship.

      I send you blessings, hope and calmness.

      Your poem applies to a lot of couples. My wife and I will celebrate our 32nd anniversary this month. There have been rough spots in our lives, but I know I never considered and I am sure my wife did not consider ever separating and ending our marriage.

      The support of my wife, has been the stabilizing force that has gotten me and us through a lot of difficult issues. My sympathy goes out to those who have been in unsuccessful marriages. I feel very blessed to have found my wife. I knew the day I met her, I was going to marry her. She took a little more convincing . We were married one year and 7 days after we met.

      My wife and I broke up four times before we finally learned to work through our own individual problems and allowed love to shine through. Great poem.
