The One Who Got Away

Stillness, Strong
A dark ocean of thought
Too deep to swim
But still I ponder at
The ripples of my reflection
Trying to see what he sees
View the world through his eyes
View me through his heart
But I can’t unmask the disguise
I can’t uncover the volume
Of thought that he hides
Hand out saying “Come on.
Let’s take this grand life for a ride.”
But he hesitates to reach
And just before he does
He leans back on his feet
And turns away from me
To his obligations
Heartbroken, I smile
And wait in hesitation
Before I drop my hand
To my side, empty
Empty as my heart
Hide the tears inside
Smile and depart

    Broken relationships are fodder for the poet's pen. You painted well the picture written by your talented pen. Nice Job... I will visit more..... Jake

    ‡ Brandi, What A Beautiful Name That Is * Yet Even Its Loveliness Pales Unto This, Your Beautiful Picture * This Is A Curious Verse ? Cast Us Into This Sea Of Love So Vast * Swimming Towards Its Blue Made Shores * Stars At Night Which Beckon Waves * Crashing Still This Love We Crave * Thank You For Your Beautiful Visit, My Luv, Rachel ‡
