A Poem, What is Rejection? a Reflection about Sadness.Look at the funny side.

Updated on March 14, 2011

Petals in the snow

Heart shaped petals in the snow
Heart shaped petals in the snow
 A Moth to the flame

A Poem of Sadness

Rejection


Like blood spattered in the snow they lay

The tiny heart - like petals fluttered in the breeze

They offered no resistance and blew away

Their dispersal showing pain will ease

The false love they stood for gone

Two hearts in harmony no longer love nor hate

the old bull stamps and turns to seek another mate

The memories of times together fade

Other pastimes fill the void we made

That others have the power to hurt we never learn

Yet moth-like to the flame we will return

We yearn for love but choose not well

The secret formula like witches spells

Is hid from us and no one tells

The old wounds heal but leave a scar

So this time we will not fall so far.

Thoughts Across the Miles

Rekindled Thoughts Across the Miles.

From dusty Plains to rainy shores
Excitement grows and soars.
Where this will lead to no one knows.
From ages past the hazy vision glows.
A surge of curiosity from far off days.

Are thoughts 'things'?
Or silver birds with gilded wings
Let from iron cage with anklet rings.
Free at last it swoops and sings.
Basking at last in late summer's rays.

      Oh char4u, so sorry to hear of your time of broken heartedness. So glad you were helped by my poem. That is the best comment I have ever received, thank you!

      Your hub is a great encouragement for those broken-hearted. I was once rejected many times by men, that's a dark awful period for me to push through. However, I realize that what have happened, just let them go, inspired by that beautiful sad poem from you!

      Thanks for the kind comment Jamie, I think we have all been there! As the old cliche goes"what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" Hope all is going well for you.

      You are so right "So this time we will not fall so far"- it never hurts again so much like the first time, you arm yourself, you brace yourself and grow stronger within (clearly you know and have experienced this) and that one initial rejection - whether it be in love or other walks of life will hold you together and bolster you for a higher plain for the rest of your life. Moving, sensitive poetry that I enjoyed, thanks, Jamie.

      Oof, you did it again, I have to repeat what someone else commented above, your poems are full of feeling in every line, and then when it's done, there's nothing left to say - it's that good. Thank you.

      Poems tend to get lower hub scores because of article length. One of those things machines have issues with :-/

      Hi Shibashake thanks for the thumbs up. Just noticed that my poem is being reduced in score every time I look. Don't know why!
