Down lonely street I go, broken and confused
It's hard to say goodbye to her
Love's hope once bright has left me bruised 
I'm here yet far away, an emotional blur
Knowing that in the end, I was used

And still I remain unsettled, what to do
Respond to her calls to return 
Rekindle love's hope and pray this time true
Or think better, and resist my heart's yearn
Lonely street, alone with thoughts of you

    This was fabulous. I see you won with it. I can understand why. It's lovely....Who can understand love, or the heart, or the choices it makes...But wisdom hardly has a say, when matters of the heart come into play.

    Congrats on the write(rated 7) of this impressive poem... "lonely lover's lane" we all walk once in a while... I know.. and it's a though walk.. in times that are rough. The song says "You never walk alone" but until you meet someone... one does... Dutch respectful greetings. Elly

    Will always be a hard choice to make! It all depends on circumstances, the will to retry, forgiveness, etc. It's easier said than done! Congrats Dave on a worthy win. // paul

    I reckon that it is best to follow the heart, make the choice and take a gamble. following the head is for the dull...Nice poem, Hope it is a win for you Dave....peter

    A hard choice indeed, better to follow the head and not the heart...sometimes

    To think with mind or heart?Its tough when one's been hurt,when one feels used, to act with his heart..But again when its love We're dealing with,its our heart which should lead the way .When in life I feel used or hurt,I get angry ,mad, resentful,but when then I wonder if I ever did hurt the ones I love too,and the answer is always the same , I am.not perfect.I hurt others too.So its a tough decision.Its easier to forgive than to forget~but how about second chances?.Im sure u touched many souls.
