Way Down Deep

Into the mystery of this heart which beats
There rises an unspeakable desire

To seek the place where passions reign
To escape this life devoid of joy or pain 

From isolation without end in sight
In radiant truth I dream each night

Of happier times we once shared 
For they, at least - showed me you cared

Sweet, sweet were those times my love
Alas, I will never know them anymore

My heart shouts out to me -“Close the door!”
This mystery has departed to return no more!

    So sad Janice you went to loving your husband to feeling such pain. I hope this is just a poem and it is not really happening to you. Michael Torres
