My faith in us is lost
for allowing us
to hurt each other without trying
I'm so right to love you
but I should have
respected me more
but I don't know how...

And that's my fault
because if I didn't care
you would have no power over me
and I wouldn't want to ease your pain?

And with one single action
we cause tears to fall
like winter rain
our hearts shreds
into pieces likes leaves
falling off a tree in Autumn

When one brushes them up
you'd never know
they'd even been there
nature allows trees
to grow more foliage come the spring...

It wasn't just the leaves that got brushed away
but my faith and the goals in life that was important to me!

How can two people
destroy each other
when so much in love?

Because I do love you
from tip to toe
from yes to no...

This is so true, Rainbow. The only power people have over us is that which we allow through our caring. Sometimes the power is used lovingly.....and sometimes not.

Like my grandma used to say..."A woman's love is like the morning dew. It can just as easily settle on a horse's ass as a rose."

I wish you the latter, not the former.

Geesh, Lovey... I'd forgotten that... *G* I'm on the carpet in a meeting trying to justify my existence, and there's a nekkid angel hiding in the potted plant! LOL.

ROFL @ dew... and an acorn that didn't fall far from the tree. *S*

Big hugs, Rainbow... Your poem is lovely... I just wish I could heal the hurt as quickly as I can say "great job!" *S*

Bal: If only we were a rose being loved each and every day...but I do remember how they smelt, all 12 of them and how beautiful...must be what they're grown in..

Iloveit/Suthern: ROFL...yep, they were brilliant times, love and laughter...there's no feeling equal to that...how much I miss it will never be known...

Take care...love you!

Leaving someone when you love someone
Is the hardest thing to do
When you love someone as much as I love you

learn to respect yourself which is more important. when were in love we tend to forget that we come first. But we really do RG. I know what you're going through...the only advice to give is to always keep your mind busy...before you know it the pain will ease. You need a friend and I'm here. I'ts my turn to help you now. you know my email. Til then turn that frown upside down !
love you.

Ouch, this is very painful, Rainbow.

"How can two people
destroy each other
when so much in love?"

That line struck me in particular...it's so disheartening to see that happen. You've expressed ambivalence very well here. Good poem...
