    Poem Commentary

    Written last summer ,you know who you are .

    Hearts on Fire

    You checked out ... stroked out
    My hearts on Fire
    Funny, when you came around
    Found your brain .... found your voice
    You still had the desire
    To tell me its my fault
    Not you ....  not alcohol
    Not even the way you live you life ,on a tight wire
    Broke me .... enlightened her
    My world is in a mire
    Told you, many times that it would come to this
    So many of us tried to please you
    Bring you some happiness
    But your mistress you held tight
    Told us it was your all
    Now the life you've led
    Will be different in many ways
    You have to heal ,take back yourself
    Heal... come what may
    You had my heart ,it was not enough
    Because of your disease
    Its ruled your head controlled your bed
    You would not listen to what I said
    I must go on ,learn from this
    A battle I must wage
    You tell me to wait you're coming back
    To lose me you cannot face
    The sad part is ... you belong to many more than me
    So I will stay ,stand my ground
    And pray for your release
    From my heart to yours ,you fully know
    The love I felt for you
    Now all I want is for you to live
    And never feel no pain
    And when you fully become yourself
    To realize
    Your life was not in vain

    As break-up poems go, you've at least got a healthy attitude about it. That's always refreshing.

    Acohol is something no one can compete with.the realization of this becomes acutely clear with passing time.I will always have scars on my heart,but one cannot save another from himself,only they have the power to do this.Thanks for your comment.

    Thanks for the nice comments.Poetry opens doors in my mind to let the myself be heard,in ways I can never say.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
