Sometimes Love Is Not Enough

They say love conquers all, I can attest that is not true
For my heart lies broken, terribly battered and blue
I loved him with all my heart but it wasn't enough
Letting go of my hopes and dreams is extremely tough

I realize now he did not love me in quite the same way
Without trust and understanding, it was destined to fray
I fought to keep our love afloat, while his intent was to drown
Creating waves and whirlpools, he turned my smile into a frown

I refused to go under, live in dark murky waters of despair 
To drag my positive outlook into negativity is utterly unfair
I need the happiness of sunshine to warm my heart and soul
Not the cold turbulent waters that never relinquish control 

I want to sail on top of the water, untroubled and secure
With a gentle breeze on my back with no attacks to endure
Luckily I had the strength, submersion would have been my end
An eternity of torment and distress  I would of had to spend

I will sail into the sunset and let my tender heart begin to heal
Taking only the good memories, the most healthiest ideal
I'll always have a piece of his heart, and he a piece of mine
I wish him health and happiness, but I know I'll be just fine.

    This is powerfully expressive, Cecilia. Your footnote implies a break from suffocating strangle holds; hope you are fine. I wish you all the best. Take care. // paul

    The poem flows with a sad beat and the words say everything by evoking thoughts within the reader's consciousness that gather within the heart. Emile. #7
