Love can't be lost

that is denied.

Fate may be cruel

but not defied...

The heart pursues

what it cannot hide,

intent to merge

upon collide.

All is not

so cut and dried.

Requited love

May not abide.

Tears then flood

from damaged pride

Rejection, thus,

In sorrow cried.

Love can't be lost

that is denied

Fate, though cruel,

won't be defied...

      BeyondMax, as I recall, I was in a pretty philisophical state of mind when I wrote this! As always, I so appreciate you!

      How deeply thoughtful and touching, fascinating poem. I actually spent some time thinking through it, it has a lot of deep meanings, sort of philosophical to the core.

      yep no problem, i feel the pain in the words that came through your poem, i had this poem come to me several weeks ago, and yea it's part of the solution that leads to recovery, and so we must write!

      If you were on Peyote

      the sky would become a river

      as the stars drown me

      swimming is a seizure

      i would meet my G-d, Coyote

      If i didn't love you

      there's no vision Peyote

      no G-d Coyote, true

      my life with purity

      no you say we're through

      The sun shines at night

      i swim the pavement

      peace and love fight

      animals seek judgment

      plants are in flight

      Nothing is without Love

      prick me i will not bleed

      i'm nothing a zombiedove

      no heart to be freed

      dead to heaven above

      Angels greet you at the gate

      you're freed to soar high

      your decision no mistake

      no more tears to cry

      your destiny my fate

      Tied to dangle i'm bait

      food for the Serpent G-d

      zombiedove he'll take

      my day is black as sod

      new beginnings too late

      Thank you, opusmith...every once in awhile I write something that I have to rethink...and that is part of the benefit of writing...self-discovery and learning! I appreciate you!

      Rethink away but never change it, it is word perfect.

      opusmith, I think perhaps you are correct...unrequited love is love, nonetheless...maybe i need rethink this one...I appreciate your read and thoughts!

      You write that love can't be lost that is denied, yet if it is in the heart of only one person, and that heart is denied a chance to share its feelings with the other person, then to me it is a love that is lost, lost to the person who found it in the first place. I don't know if this makes any sense. I truly enjoyed and identified

      with your poem.

      Nikkij, exactly. I wasnt sure that was clear...the whole poem is about not losing something you never had, but feeling the loss all the same. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I now know that the message got through!

      vrbmft, thank you for sharing your thoughts on this poem...unrequited love is a painful thing, indeed, but no less valid in the heart where it is given birth. The truth of it is that it is for love that we are designed and fashioned...without love, there is not much meaning and purpose in life. Again, thank you!

      I enjoyed your poem. I read them outloud. It helps. It is difficult for me to hold on to one of my beliefs because what feels like rejection is so painful. My belief: The love that stirs inside of me comes from inside of me and is there whether or not the stirring is ever received. I guess that is what you are saying. It seems so much more wonderful when the love is received and taken in and shared, but if not, it is still love. And is still precious and deserves to be owned and cherished by the lover. Here I go on and on talking about it and you said it so succinctly in a poem!!
