Houston we have a problem

"When returning love, becomes to Late"

From her eyes
His name the name
She mumbles silently 
3 rivers, 3 years, 2 many tears
She loves him endlessly

Sending her soul
A free feeling, 
Finally, he fell
Engaging, equal to the spell
Morning, mountains and more
Move across a new age moon
His heart happily 
Traveling towards hers
Dashing dandy, onto her dinner plate 
Too long she waited, 
She's not hungry, her heart self healed 

3 rivers 3 years 2 late
Her tears faded his rusty name

Very truthful poem, Skat. Too many times, somebody misses out on love because they waited too long to make a move to grab hold of love. You nailed it. Excellent write, or do I dare say ... write off. Oh well, you snooze, you lose. Love your work as always. Much love and more love.

Hi Skat, the words touch deeply and the flow of emotion is constant from start to finish. An excellent poetic piece that took me on its flowing journey. A seven and a fave. Hugs....Vladislav.

One thing I appreciate is word conservation. Napoleon once said, "a picture is worth a thousand words" While true, one can paint a thousand picture with few words, and you did just that.

Is there anything more tragic than Love unrequited? Love should burn out or melt the principals due to its heat but never "rust". Evocative... Sad... Thank you for hooking my heart with your pen.

I feel here something extra ordinary, penned with beautiful words. Time passes and everything becomes clear and after waiting many years, it becomes too late is felt and the loved name becomes rusty. Beautifully adorned a dream in to frustration. So, better be strong after hearing the rusty name. Loved always, my lovely friend, bl

Yes, this is Houston, what is the problem Space Child? Houston likes the alliteration and the last line in particular. Houston has conferred and decided not to abort your mission on the condition that you keep writing and promise to stay in orbit and not go flying way the hell off to the next galaxy or god knows where else...
