The One You Never Know


After the smoke clears from this room.
Will question why.
As you push me into  the depths.
As I lifted you from your self appointed gloom.

So take his hand cause happiness has another 
You can close your eye's.
but it's never the same.

Can we ever forget that which we did
not understand.
you hide the pain.
But secrets dig into your soul 
like barbwire in hand.

She ran with what wasnt supposed to be.
Sweet suduction it was in such devlish fun.
To bad it was so very clear to all but me.

Under covers bodies without thought collide
locked in the passion of night.
Taking flustrations out in plessure.
You appear as a vision get your fix then vanish from sight.

Cheating the heart fractrued given to two.
You question  with lies.
As I yern to hold the woman I belive is you.

And so I exist in a mystery only you can
im the dirty secret across the tracks.
The dirt underfoot  in which my heart does revolve.

If only the feeling could last.
I question while off to another.
Would you stay it was you fading with the past.

Worn from it's trappings you crawl.
Wash away the truth.
Confession of pillow talk that
 seep into the wall.

So is the story of the confussed woamn who 
fractured her heart over two.
And the man who only did thirst for the 
one he thought he knew

    The ending of this poem is really nicely done, I think it does so perfectly--a sad story but haunting in its own way--keep on writing!

    The person who most adores a cheating lover certainly feels the pain deeply, John. But, as you know, that pain lessens over time. There's no way to wave a magical wand and make it disappear all at once. This is a very honest, heartfelt poem! It's been a while since you have posted some new work, so how about it? Much love, Carolyn

    Deep, soul-stirring piece, John! Sad. I believe in everyone's life sooner or later you come to realize that there is someone whom you thought you knew! Very good! Peace, love, Audrey
