Love from afar


She lays in wonder, she lays in wait. Her mind now ponders over each little thing. She doubts herself, both old things and new. She's never known love, for her love’s only been used, to put her down, to break her sweet heart. She was a beautiful puzzle this world's torn apart. She now see’s not her worth, her beauty, her soul. Shed been always held down, or kept under control. Not by mans hands, and not under might, but from what she believed, that he had inside. The biggest thing her eyes could not see, was the one who seen her, and loved each broken piece. He loved her through winter, spring, summer and fall. He counted each tear, and felt every one crawl… down her beautiful face, as each one would fall. Though he knows his love is true, it’s the love of this man that she never knew, began or existed for the words stayed upon lips, rolled not off his tongue as he kept them within. He’ll always love her, eternal as the stars… though his love will remain always from afar.

    Sometimes, it is hard to see your own worth- especially when the heart has been torn to pieces. Your thoughts are beautiful, emotional and tender. Love is being there for someone, through every moment. I am wrapping your thoughts softly around me. ~ Brandy

    YO, I love this poem. It speaks a sad truth for some and maybe someday she will notice the man counting her tears. Keep up the good work
