Poem Commentary

Loving someone that has deceived you and fooled you into believing that the pain they caused was them loving you back is horrific and takes a long time to heal...

I REMEMBER

There was a time you'd spit fire into me with your rhythmic rhymes
to make my body lay like leaves that blow through on a breezy day
floating within your air of admiration made it hard to breathe you in prospectively...

Once a word from you rang truth into my ears so loud the sound of your deception tuned into my selective hearing and I would sleep through your lullaby of lies memorized by the soothing pitch that was only for my listening pleasures...

Your electricity sparked flames and third degree burns because you gazed into my soul and I stuck to you like grapes to a vine but I aged with time passing us by you grew old and took tolls on my weary quest for your vintage taste...

There are stilled moments when I can recall how the smell of your sweet scent would captivate me and memories flow to me like your melody that played my heart strings like a symphony of loves past and now amongst the silence I can hear the tunes of my contentment sing me to life...

I think we've all been there... you capture place and this emotion so well. Masterfully written ;-)

I love this. Thank you for sharing. I have been through a similar situation, and yes it was very difficult to overcome. Especially, when I made myself believe that I had nothing else.

Loves sharpness can cut so deep it can scar for life... Thanks for your comment !!

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
