He keeps her quietly on the side,
It only takes a word or two.
She thinks that soon she'll be his bride,
When all he wants is her to use.

She could have so much more,
But then, that would be a risk.
So she waits just inside her door,
And thinks her life is made of this.

The sun rises the next morn,
Before she admits he won't be there.
But with his absence hope is born,
That he'll feel sorry and begin to care.

She is the angel of the night,
Giving grace where none is due.
Awaiting love until daylight,
Then crying softly for dreams untrue.

*sniffle*  Did I pick the perfect day to read this one! How sad, and the last stanza really got me.  since it's your fault this poem was so sad, do you happen to have a hanky on hand?

 "Glory remains unaware of my neglected dwelling where alone
I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

Oh my, a serious deep poem from LongJohn, I think I may need glasses. Joking aside, this is wonderful.

It seems to me that we seem to by on the same wave length today with our poems.  Very nicely done.  Perhaps are main characters are dating each other....

Some Love is so strong that some are Blinded by it..I guess that`s where the saying "Blinded By Love" come`s from?Or is that Blind Love???

Very nice writing Mr.LngJhnAg
thank you for sharing  

 Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
And the begining of a new one.

Looks like everyone is writing sad poems lately. Kinda hard to feel alone when everyone else around you can relate in one way or another. Great poem LngJhnAg.

And so did I and do agree
very sad but nicely done

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
