Best John Loving Iii Poems

+ Fav Poet


sometimes i think about moments
sometimes i think about special moments
and i know that i can never
receive another gift
and feel the same
i can never make another
promise in any name
i can never feel again 
what i gave away
though i try again and again
April took my love away
away with her to this very day
i cannot hurt for anyone else
i cannot give of my deepest self
i cannot dream like i dreamed of her
i have no desire for anyone on earth

at time i try to come to terms
with myself
find someone, anyone
yet having nothing to offer
no feeling, no desire, no passion
only temporal lust
should someone try to find me
they'd find someone they shouldn't trust
even though i'm an honest person
there could never be an  us
my moments would steal me away
and lesser love show up
a defeat by love that is in a grave
is still a betrayal of trust

    Sometimes it all just has to come out, may take some time but eventually the pain will be spent and you will wake up to a new adventure. Life is like that. All the best John, I hope it begins soon for you. Love, Elizabeth

    the dead seem perfect because they're viewed through the rosy glow of nostalgic memory, without the flaws and foibles of the living...

    I don't believe so John, if she truly loved you and I believe she did, I think she would delight in your happiness. Wouldn't you if the role was reversed. Love never ends, it is an extension of oneself, one must not compare, no two loves are ever the same, please don't close your heart, God works in mysterious ways, forgive me if I have said too much, given from my heart with good intention, love and light vie

    Thanks for the responce but the piece is made with my true feelings. I dread someone close to me finding this piece offensive. But part of the cost of poetry is the pain.
