Burial of my Love

My love, the true feeling that I exude Was put beneath the Earth sometime today She hadn’t died, at least not that I know But the emotion of love went away So I buried the heart I chose to love She means so little to me at this time So to lose her heart surely means nothing I buried my love for her, it’s a sign I feel nothing for her, not like before She won’t exist in my life anymore I care for my own heart, and it still cries Weeps for the sad loss of our love once more But now I can rest, I bury my love No ceremony, no dedication Just laying of love down into the ground I’m glad, I have time for contemplation There’s no regrets, no feelings of remorse Just a future for true love, right on course

    "No regrets" are a good thing. Freeing up your heart and mind leaves you with a stronger spirit, easier to move on. God Bless, Connie

    Russell, I like the alliteration here of burying the love, but not person. Yes, lost love can feel the same as if the person themself had passed - minus the ceremony and dedication - as you mention. And, ther reverse is also true, you can bury a person you really love, but the love itself stays alive. Maybe that can be the theme of your next poem. Nicely done. Well written and creative in making your point. Joe
