    Poem Commentary

    One of my few flirtations with poetry that actually rhymes!

    Never Again

    Never again will I experience the heady rush of being pursued,

    Never again the unparalleled joy of being worthy enough to be wooed.

    Never again will I have the rush and romance of a First Kiss,

    Never again will I enjoy that special kind of awkward bliss.


    Never again will I be left to wonder if he will really call,

    Never again shall I be left to wonder ‘Is this all?’

    Never again will I be stood up on a date,

    Wondering if he will show or is he just late.


    Never again will I have to suffer, doubt, or fear.

    Never again will I waste any of my tears,

    For I have found the one to whom I belong,

    In sickness and health, rich or poor, right or wrong.


    Never again will I be left to struggle all alone,

    There is a special comfort here that I have never known.

    Never again will I wonder if I am worthy of his heart.

    Never again will I have to simply play a part.


    Never again will I be half, but a Whole;

    I found the one who touches both my heart and soul.

    The pot of gold at then end of a rainbow. I'm glad you found it. Thanks for letting us know that it is still there.



    I was starting to wonder, myself! But yes, it still exists. :)

    The surety of having that one who will never again get in your way of worry or angst is a wondrous occasion. As the tension builds the reader can hardly wait to know how this ends. ginga

    Oh the wholeness of finding your self in another. Sounds like you have a one-in-a-million relationship here, treasure it!! This is beautiful...



    That I do! Thank you for the read and for your words of encouragement!

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
