Fantasies

Sometimes I look at life and wonder
Just what is it that I see
Is it real or just a fancy
Knawing and consuming me

Can it be imagination
Taking flight to who knows where
I never knew a fantasy
Could leave a heart in such despair

I know just what a dream looks like
I know my feelings when they're real
But I don't why I can't stop
This overpowering feel I feel

It keeps me turning in the night
Consuming every vital part
Taking over all my senses
And devouring my heart

A day has only so many hours
A hive holds just so many bees
My heart can take just so much pain
Until it falls down on its knees

I don't want a broken heart
I don't want more sleepless nights
If he won't leave my heart at peace
I'll just have to fight the fight

I'll take this feel that's really real
And throw it to the seven seas
I'll tell my heart to take a hike
And chalk it off to fantasies!

Powerful emotions, Liz! I hate to admit it but I know exactly what you're feeling.  Intense, isn't it?  My advice to you is this...please take your time!!  Discovering the REAL person is no small task, especially if it's someone on the net.

Girls, girls, girls!
This is just a poem!
I once remarked that sometimes you write a poem that's true, and nobody believes it, and sometimes you fabricate a situation, and everyone starts crying. This one is .... well, I'll let you decide for yourself. I'm a married lady, you know.
Thanks for caring and thanks so much for your comments.

A Heart once came into its' creators' hands..
In the sleep of her night-time..
He molded it into his plans..
She felt the pain as He formed her a jewel..
He did it so tenderly, so lovingly..
But the pain  seemed so cruel..

He chipped away, both day and night..
Her soul yearning to submit-
Her flesh wanting to fight..
He rounded the sharp edges..
Making a Heart just right..

So to Hell He sent her..
Yes, He'd been there before..
In the heat of the furnace..
He tempered her more..

He gave her understanding..
And a love thats beyond..
Imagination or a fantacy..
Of your Heart He is "fond"..
      James David

And creates what He wants"  Bless U Liz

Elizabeth, my friend -

Tee Hee !

The poem is lovely.
The responses too.
I love the shock-value
presented to you !

A poem is just a poem,
that much we both know.
But, honey, if you ever get lonely ...
you'll know where to go !

*HI, Elizabeth's hubby !

A poem is just a poem

Elizabeth,
Here I read between what lies.
Where lies the truth in surmise.
But it is not for me to speak of truth.
That is for the confession booth.
Your poetry is impeccable.
But no to me implacable.

Sy
One who knows the poet well
Would understand what verses tell
One who knows the poetry
Would clearly then its meaning see
Fact or fiction, truth or jest
The poet's the one who knows the best
A poem is simply poetry
Is it real or fantasy?
Thanks for your verse

"Just" a poem - it still conveys a powerful message... and it's very true - sometimes a great deal of patience is needed to build a truly trusting bond with someone special...
