Days roll by at a snail’s pace
Everywhere I turn I see your wonderful face
I’m sleeping with a dark cloud above my bed
I can’t seem to shake you out of my head
Maybe she’s better for you than me
but I can’t see it…we were meant to be
Each time we kissed,
the ground was a wave
beneath our feet
Didn’t you feel it, too?
My naiveté shines through
Inside my heart,
you won’t find resentment
Our moments we shared
bring me contentment
To win you back,
there’ll be no childish ploy
Into your future,
I only wish you joy

Only a strong heart, that knows how to love unconditionally can accept it.
Nicely done, Lauren. 🙂
Thanks so much, Archana! 🙂
Once again you’ve written strong words that conjure up such amazing thoughts. You are old beyond your years. Virginia
Virginia, I’m in my 50’s, so not so young anymore and thank you for the complement! 🙂
You’re in your fifties. You’re in the prime of your life. All those experiences from the past. All the possibilities for the future. You look fabulous.
Yes, true to all and thank you, Virginia, for your awesome complement! I do feel good (most of the time) and really wouldn’t want to turn back time…thanks again, you’re a sweetheart! 🙂
i really enjoyed the soft words of your lovingly moving poem! It just made me smile!
Thanks so much, Wendell, I appreciate your kind words and I’m always happy to make you smile!
Felt a tear rolling down my face as I know you’re happily married then I saw the word “fiction” down to grab a smile..
You’ve played the role right….may it be a play never showing through your true life
Awww…Mira, thanks for your concern and emotions…if this ever were true (which it won’t be), I don’t think I could write so openly about it. But, I know it’s true to life for some and sometimes, my words stem from my past, before my wonderful hubby walked through the door! Hugs and Blessings to you!
Beautiful, gentle words, Lauren! It is only when one accepts that they find peace! Have a lovely day, my friend! Hugs xx
Thanks, Deb, and so very true! I hope you’ve had a great Monday! Hugs! xo
You did so well, that I got faint with concern and personal “relapse”, Then…I saw someone comment “Fiction”…Oh thank God….I know how much love is in your relationship. You are a good fiction writer! May this never, ever happen to you. Cherish Love, Linda
Oh, Linda, you are too kind and compassionate of a soul! Many of my poems are derived from past relationships and some are simply fiction, however, true to life for others…your kind words made my day even better! xoxo
So beautiful and spoken with a kindness. I know these feelings all too well in my life…
Thanks again, Muse, and I’m sure many of us have experienced this. I hope your feelings are in your past and there is only sunshine in your world now, though! xx
This is someone’s truth…I’m so glad it isn’t yours…but how awesome that you can write about it…your empathy is shining through. xox
Thanks, Jeannie, you are ever so kind, my friend, and I love your new photo; lovely! 🙂 xx
Thank you Lauren! xox
Sometimes it’s hard to so , sometimes it hurts real bad even though it’s the best way to let go. Francina xox
Very true, thanks, Francina, and have a wonderful month off! xoxo
How wonderful to express in this fine poetic way the truth that once love has been genuinely given to some, only good wishes can evermore flow from the heart for that person, no matter what other people they choose to be with.
Oh, Rose, your description is so eloquent and right on! 🙂
what a beauty,when you truly love yourself you find it in your heart to forgive…it is so important that one loves oneself before someone else so that they wont make crazy attempts to win back the past….beautiful poetry Lauren 🙂
Thanks, Soma, your comment is so insightful in itself! Love ya! 🙂
Awwww……so sad and bittersweet too….
Yes, but probably true for many, right? Thanks for stopping by, Celeste! 🙂
Thanks, David, I appreciate you stopping by! 🙂
