If only I loved myself

She looked at my face
Searching for a smile
There's no hint of joy
Lonely in my eyes
Filled with my heartache

My dreams broken
My lover left
Walking away
Leaving me here

Who could love
Broken me
When I loathed

Myself
My sad

Self

Diminished Hexaverse Contest

First time writing this form, hopefully got it right.

No worries this is an empathic excercise not something I am going through.

    I wrote a poem for my book called Gods Mirror. If we see ourselves through Gods Mirror we will see ourselves as truly Lovable.

    Don't know about the form Rick, I'm hopeless at all that but others seem happy with it so well done. Thanks for the nighty night, the time difference does play havoc with those though lol. Take care, Richard

    way to do it. It seems to be done right. Oops, I just saw a mistake, friend. She couldn't love, needs to be three syllables. You better check them over!

    Hello Rick! Stopping by while I have time this morning and of course, I must read some of your work! This is awesome, a form I don't recall reading before- I love that you're always trying out new forms. Absolutely amazing poem, but that's no surprise to me, let alone anyone I'm sure. ;) Hugs my darling!

    I read the rules for the contest so I had to change it to match the category. Lol I can't tell you how may times I have had to do that. Like most men I never read the instructions.
