  • I am here, heart in hand, ready to share time and poems ith anyone who will give me the time in their day.


Her heart is breaking
For it never again will feel
The gentle ache a heart bears
When true love it will fill..
Fill it to its brim,
To its bursting seams,
Tenaciously full of human emotion,
And dreams

With the offer of true love,
He tenderly baits her.     
Quickly, he reels her in,
.For him a casual romance,
For her a deepest desire.
Two souls joined now in one passion

Peering into the soul
Brings painful reflections,
Memories crossing paths
Like those shared with old flames,
Old flames with whom she once
Divulged her deepest desire,
Desires of tortuous love, 
Still, the fire burns within her soul.

Rekindling the blaze once felt long ago. 
Again, she experiences the blessed ache
The ache that hurts so bad and 
Makes her feel so sad,
Then he walks away
Feeling the pain, the gentle ache
Proudly keep silent
Both needing each other,
While,those three little words
neither would break down say ,
To each other. to each other
,I'll  always love you. 
Please don't walk away."

dumplin commented on Reflections


Oh, I ache for true love to overcome me and for the feeling to be mutual between me and my soul mate. One misspelling, but other than that, great write!

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
