I don't mean enough
to anyone it seems,
for them to think
of my fears and dreams.

Why must I always
be the considerate one,
the sole font
of care and compassion?

Why must I relive
old, embittered, scars,
that come at me
like onrushing cars?

Why are my nerves
so completely raw,
that when hurt,
I fight
tooth and claw?

Why am I
the only one
to soothe the soul,
when no one is there
to make ME whole?

If the only reason I'm needed,
is to listen,
then
in some fashion,
my life is a prison.

There is just myself
left holding the key,
to both this existence,
and my sanity.

Is writing this verse
the only purpose,
the only part of me,
or just the surface?

Life was simpler,
before I learned to care,
now that I do,
a day without pain,
is rare.

Rhyming couplets
seem to suit my mood,
as I stew in my juices,
ponder and brood.

To no longer care,
is the easiest answer,
but then,
dear God,
how would I romance her?

In defiance of the pain,
rage, and spite,
I find
that
I look forward
to the night.

For it brings with it
the prize I desire,
my Lady by my side,
is all that I require.

Listening to every heart

I like this one, Dream. Hardly "just the surface".

You remind me of a dear friend from long ago.
Our paths crossed deeply, see, but we were not meant to be.
You recall to my mind my love for him.
He touched my soul, and I had to let go.
I doubt that you are he, but your words I was meant to see.

The tangent you are taking in your writings are wings to my spirit. Thank you.

I am here for you........any time you need me. An aching soul can sometimes be beautiful.

Well done, Dream... Well done. The path to a woman's heart is through her ears. I hope she takes the time to listen.

When you care, you are handing her the greatest weapon in the world. If she doesn't use it against you, she's the one.

My God! I never expected this response. Especially from some of the poets I admire most. Humbling yet again. Thank you.

Lovely, sir. Just lovely. You put a lot of pain and naked isolation in this one. I'm proud of you!

Thank you, Lady deVine. I'm humbled by your praise. I know I use it too often, it's just such an apt phrase.

Excellent poem dream. We are all vulnerable to those whom we care most about, but what kind of life would we have if we never risked truly caring or loving another? You captured the pain and risk of pain well...
