I watch the sun set as I stand here alone...
I've chased away love - I'll survive on my own.
The heartaches & problems I've had to withstand
Aren't worth all the tears that I hold in my hand.

Though love comes & love goes,I never could see...
Why I always had to be lonely and free.
I've tried to find one who would love me & be -
Forever my lover...for eternity.

I've chased after rainbows & wished upon stars...
But somehow my heart has remained behind bars...
The love that I've searched for just cannot be found -
Instead, I've decided to just stand my ground.

If ever the star that I wish upon falls...
Or if ever my name in the still night he calls -
I wonder, just wonder what will happen to me...
Once again - will my hand hold a
"Billowing Sea?"........

Beautiful..a feeling many of us feel, I think. Keep up the excellent work.

This is an old favorite of mine, from WAY back in my younger year - slash it if you want, but give me your opinions nonetheless....You guys know you can be brutally honest with me - the worst I'll do is write a poem about you in the Adult Forum !! LOL

Femme, I liked it. As far as the Adult Forum goes, please don't include me in one of your poems...I don't think at this time in my abstinant situation that I could take the excitement..haha.

With the beautiful song you sing, how is it that love cannot find you? Sing on, dear Poet, sing on.

Pff dear, I used to stand by the ocean many a time, longing for love, yet running from it - how beautifuuly you have expressed this. I'm standing there with you!

A lazy Saturday so I thought I dig around and see what I missed, I have tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat...Why? maybe this just hit too close to home. Thank you.

PFF,
Youth does not look for truth.
Nor does it weigh love.
Lovely poem.

Beautiful! Thank goodness so many folks are reaching back and bringing up treasures that many of us are seeing for the first time [there ARE only so many hours in the day, y'know?] Well done!

You asked for brutal honesty, so here it is: This is a beautiful poem, brave and sad. I love it.
