No Love Lost

                                                 Times are so very different
                           You and I are no longer on terms of endearment
                                                As twisted as it may sound
                                                My love for you is continual
                                    Although, my adoration, trust and respect
                                                    Now are all conditional
                                        We produced a miracle six years ago
                        That miracle personified the essence of my existence
                                        My love flows bottomless for your role
                                                  In my son’s earthly presence
                                      For that, respect I yield to you at any cost
                                               I thank you deeply and eternally
                                                     There was No Love Lost

                                                Remember when your smile
                                           Could melt my heart on command
                                                      I adored you immensely
                                               It was an honor to be your man
                                                   Trust was our real dilemma
                                      And the catalyst for our marital implosion
                                              Respect was infected terminally
                                              Leaving nothing to build on …only
                                            Traces of ash from love’s corrosion
                              Reality suggests, our foundation was built on lies
                              Consequently, it crumpled ferociously plummeting
                                                           hard to the ground
                                                  Still there was No Love Lost
                                       True love for us…really was never found

    Some times I wish life was simple as we are sorry ... we never see eye to eye again when severed ... emotions become polarized ... it takes superhuman sacrifices then to keep fragile friendship intact ... god bless your heart with that strength ... and may your son and your dreams prosper as your talent ... wounded love never sleeps. Bravo

    Des Juan, I have read this write over and over & every time that I read it, it stirs something within me, you are a very powerful writer, and I truly feel your pain, thanks for your kind words regarding myself it is truly appreciated, this soup is a healing for the soul, because even though you put your personal information on this site through your writes, no one is judging you & it's like a catharsis- a healing, I kept thinking about this write even after off the computer, keep writing D-nyce

    Des Juan, I am truly sorry that your relationship did not work out, but whatever the reason, try to be cordial to each other for your son's sake, I have been at the place where you are now too many times to count, just trying to get ove a failed relatioship right now, and it's hard, because I am a good person and a good woman, but anyway this is a remarkable write, I feel your passion and your pain in this write, I truly love the way your writes flow,

    Hello Des Juan!Thank you for the comments. Relationships take alot of work in keeping them together.When they break up there's alot of mean-ness in the air.no love lost shows an unconditional love/respect.although you had to go separate ways.This poem can be a lesson well learn. B BLESS Crystal
