Letting Go

She sought fulfillment,
Sought togetherness
All she got were
Vague promises
Of a future that
Didn’t exist
Even in his dreams.

Her woeful pangs
Of longing and pain
Were received
By hopeless words
Of understanding,
To have patience
That stretched infinitely.

Immersed in her agony
She didn’t sense his…
Didn’t smell his fear
Of losing her in this lifetime.
His choice, his decision
Having no place for her
And yet…
He couldn’t set her free.

He wanted it all
Both worlds…
His legacy and his love.
Wrenching her heart
He was oblivious
To the endless distance
That crept stealthily…
Till one day she set herself free.

Free to hope for a
New day…
Her love buried for always in
The deep crevice of her heart
Never to be resurrected.
Carrying within the burden
Of a pain numbed in time.

  4. Hey guys I am the "queen of tragedy" that's why I get away with such pain and sorrow. Even if I have the most lovable man loving I will still go looking for tragedy because that is what I thrive on. :))) My Outlier knows that

  7. Wow! I'm not used to reading between the lines with this kind of poem but I'm sure there is some deep meaning in it... I see love and pain and longing all brought together to one in the heart of a person who loves someone deeply but painfully on the other hand... I hope I'm right though Rimly...:) Thank you!

  8. @Jim it is only when you feel pain you value happiness. Thank you as always for your comments
    @Alejandro you are so right. It is so much to have had and lost than not to have at all
    @Jorie you are right. It is a very straightforward poem, no reading in between the lines.
