Image result for breakup


For the last time but as if for the first time, Kiss me with fiery fervor I used to know; I'll shiver with a tingle like your wind chime, I'll forget the lonely nights you left me fallow. For the last time but as if for the first time, Caress my blushing body and reddened lips. Woo me with your physical rhythm and rhyme, I'll let the pain, by the pleasure, be eclipsed. For the last time but as if for the first time, Let me hear your sensual voice sigh my name. As we entwine, your body and mine, sublime, Such a shame your straying flame I could not tame. For the last time but as if for the first time, Hold me and look into my hazel green eyes... Tell me your love wasn't just satiric mime, Say you still love me; your prettiest of lies.

Sad and heartbreaking in ways it may be, but we either take from people what they can give, or go elsewhere. And elsewhere, as you know, may be nowhere. So, I guess this is where unconditional love enters. As you say, it is not always entirely fulfilling for both. Great writing, Susan. Amazing insight.

Hi Joe, I agree with your wonderful comments but there's such a fine line between giving unconditional love and being taken advantage of.. I think the speaker of this poem's love was being badly taken advantage of, so the cad does not deserve unconditional love, in my humble opinion.. I think she should dry her tears and dump him lol! Thank you for your insightful comments. Your visit is always a delight. Warmest wishes. ~Susan

Your pen never lets you down, Susan...but how can it...it's hard for a real poet to go astray! ~ That first time is still very vivid in the mind; is she really ready to let go? Lovely rhyming, as usual it comes very natural to you. Congratulations on this deserved win. Warm regards // paul
