Your Lover

You cannot forget him
No matter how you try
His image always there
Adored in your mind’s eye

You try hard to forget
How he made your heart ache
You swore that loving him
Was such a bad mistake

Yet, you can’t stop wanting
His hands upon your skin
You write loving letters
Hoping his heart to win

You question tomorrow
Will it bring sweet reprieve?
But it dawns full of pain
As for his love you grieve

You try on your best dress 
Spray on the sweetest scent
Hope that you'll entice him
His absence you resent

You give the best you have
Knowing it will not do
His heart’s with another
He’s not in love with you

So you keep on dreaming
One day he’ll see the light
Be your ardent lover
Through each and every night.

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    Dear Eileen, That dream will come true - have that confidence, that flair, that "aire", that "Je ne se qua"---Ah, you have inspired a poem from me that I will dedicate to you. Missed you! Never forget---"You are the marvelous Betty Boop" and you mean it girl!

    CRAIG..........I've missed you as well. It seems like SO long ago that I had a visit from you! How are you? All is well....Well, sometimes dreams just remain dreams, Craig...Some dreams just won't ever come true.....but they help us to survive, so.....we can just keep dreaming. Please let me know which poem you are referring to. I'd LOVE to read it! Hugs from Betty BOOP! ;)

    Some dreams are not worth hanging onto, still your poem is eloquently expressed.

    Every reader brings their own interpretation to a poem....The word lover here could be in the physical sense....or a loved one....Some aspects are metaphorical....Dreams are dreams....No one can touch a dream! :)

    If I had a nickel for those I've come across and ended up in similar situations. I have way too much to say on this one. But, I'll leave it at this. This was strong & filled with harsh truths. Perhaps, this can be a wake-up call to those who really, truly deserve better...

    I'd love to know more, Drake....Truth can be harsh...but it is truth nevertheless....Life isn't always so simple, Drake....Situations differ...Cultures differ.....For those who have had the wake-up call...sometimes prefer to sleep than face consequences...something to think about
