Untangle: A Poem

Updated on May 9, 2012
Source



“Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness.”-Steve Maraboli

Turn a cold shoulder,


It's easier than being bolder,


I'll just walk a straight line,


You start out with hearts intertwined,


But then the fates weren't quite aligned,


So when it just all collapses,


You gotta face all the facts 'cause,


This wasn't quite how you thought it'd be,


Source

But then you sit close to a warm fire,


And you wash off all the grime and mire,


So, your frigid heart begins to thaw,


And life once more puts you in awe,


Source

There's still beauty to be seen,


And the grass here still is green,


You can release a heavy, relieved sigh,


Look back for a second, and then just wave goodbye.

      Some good use of language yet again. Voted up. The knot patterns remind me of a Celtic design seem in tracery, tattoo, etc. Blessings.

      Nice piece about moving on. Indeed, the world moves onwards perpetually, why shouldn't we?

      I love this poem- the words and the allusions are impeccably strung together- only to be untangled. You rhyme wonderfully naturally, Erin. awesome. shared.

      Voted up, awesome, and beautiful. You've used this poem to tell everyone that life goes on and we should make the best of it, even if its over a lost love....at least that's what I got!.

      Docmo: "the words and the allusions are impeccably strung together-only to be untangled" I guess that happened unintentionally. Thanks so much!

      tillsontitan: Yes, sometimes it's hard to untangle the complications due to relationships and the aftermath of them. Thanks for voting!

      mary615: Wow...that comment has made my week; maybe my year! Thank you; I appreciate your kind comment so much.
