Ambivalent Heart

Funny how a fickle heart works:   
always pining for what was then 
and loving to hate this moment,   
oft returning to way back when.

Regretful of all that are gone,  
dismissive of the present day,
it cannot wait to get past now
rushing forward to get away.    

But wait until tomorrow comes      
when today is a faded memory, 
heart will pause foolishly longing 
for that it cursed just yesterday!

    I know the feeling, Fred. Memories come with rose colored glasses. Things were much worse actually but the memories only see the joy. Vince

    Such an honest and well expressed write. We better appreciate the love we have today, while we have it. Love, Shar

    I have had these same thoughts. Will today become a treasured memory? Your poem was very insightful! ~ Carrie
