Victims Of The Mist (poem)

Updated on August 27, 2012

It saddens me that I must break your heart

And draw life’s painful vale on all of this

Our dreams of love forever just dismiss

We met too late for our romance to start


Yet not to air the truth would be remiss

We are not cowards who from trouble dart

There is a grace to how we choose to part

And let this grace be our enduring kiss


I cannot say the words you long to hear

For if I did I also lose your trust

Another victim of the mist of life


But as we part please know I’ll feel each tear

For our goodbye forever is a must

For I am bound forever to my wife

      Your wife is the lucky one! You are a hopeless romantic, my friend, just like a few others. I love you all! And the choice of Santana was perfect. Of course, how can you go wrong with Santana.

      Voted up.

      Whoa, the end punchline!! I agree with Richard....there is difficulty in saying who is in the right/wrong at times. I do know one our own imperfect way, we try to stick to what's morally right.

      Life has many twists and turns, at times, they are not fair to all involved. It is sad when these occasions arise. You've expressed it well! Great Job!

      What a wonderful poem of a love denied. How beautifully penned. I love this because it is true to life when someone falls in love with another but is already committed to someone else.

      A beaut.
