If you only knew

This poem is dedicated to all you loners out there, whose hearts are not truly their own. Enjoy! 🙂
Long after the last lovely words were spoken
the kisses ran dry, the eyes lost their shine
Alone at the halfway point I stood- shaken
Remembering the times when I called you mine.
A thin twine, guilt-emotion-hope- what shall it be called?
Connects your retreating presence to me
my hands have turned cold; your feelings have stalled
like a mast less schooner, I’am helpless out at sea.
I don’t need no hope- its assurance I so longingly crave
those magic-healing words, ‘I love you’, that is all
our story might be headed to the purgatory of compromised promises, that hated grave
but I want our saga to live a little longer- before it answers the challenge, that final call!
In the absence of sanity- chaos has always ruled
the ‘forever ever’ is a mystery, the ‘here today’ a silent act
love never lives where it feels unwanted- mocked and fooled
But how do I escape our hearts, those promises, our little pact?
The world is made possible, by the enduring power of love
Love that is my world, where I belong – gently holding you
Battles I can face- it’s your unconcerned silence that hurts me now
my spirits are failing- so is my being- if you only knew!
