Separate Stars


Poem Commentary

We're reaching desperately into the darkness -

Separate Stars

Well Baby, maybe  ....
you're a little pissed off,
You might have every single right to be.
But, have you ever given ...
a second thought,
About how it's been effecting me?
Because Baby, behind ...
everything that's wrong,
You know somewhere there lies a reason.
So how can you expect ...
our love to go on,
When there's nothing left to believe in?

We're reaching desperately into the darkness -
But, we just keep drifting further apart.
We're forever lost among the heartless -
Making wishes upon separate stars!!

Well Baby, maybe ...
 it's all for the better,
Maybe we were never meant to be.
So what's the use ...
 in staying together,
When we really just want to be free?
There's no point in ...
trying to hide our feelings,
Behind some meaningless band of gold.
It's going to be ...
 a long time healing,
And we're probably better-off on our own!

We're reaching desperately into the darkness -
But, we just keep drifting further apart.
We're forever lost among the heartless -
Making wishes upon separate stars!!

This is that realization moment when you know it is time to move on. Well stated, my friend.



Thanks Olan .. I wrote this when my first marriage was coming to an end. Thanks again, Ken

sadly if yuou feel that way and you ask them and wait for them to want to seperate if they are no longer together then why do they make that decision depending on what the other wants to do... being independant isn't easy..... and first one must learn to stand on there own two feet.... not lean on someone elses feet lovers are not two leaning towers headed for a head on collision, and pairs of left feet.... how can people let relationships fade to the point where they end up saying uhmmm i don't know i guess i'll do whaat you want.... is that what you want... cos if trhats what you want then i'm happy to continue but if you want to quit it too, no hard feeling... so dunno think about tell me later.... kinda scary. Hope your good. take care and another interesting creativly well constructed calmness in the face of tragedy. Tempy



Thank you so much Tempy for your awesome review and comments - I wrote this a very long time ago - when me and my first wife were separating and headed for divorce - it was like a theraputic write for me. Thanks again my friend - Much appreciated! :) Ken

awww this is far too sad...i feel the grief...that couples endure when they take this totally breaks my heart when i hear of a couple that is goin' thru a divorce....but yes i totally agree if one is in a loveless marriage....then the heart knows its sense in chokin' the heart out of its need to be touched....sometimes love is worth fightin' for...but if it affects the mind body and spirit...its best to surrender...excellent write Ken.....this write shows compassion and deep Love for another heart...when one comes to an agreement...and still remain friends....not always the case...but a small % of the time it is... Namaste..Terra @}-'-,- (10+ )



Thanks Terra! I appreciate it as always, and your correct .. too bad people can't put the bad times behind and move on. It makes for a much better life, especially if there are children involved. Thanks again for your awesome comments! ... Ken
